Scientists have created an ultrathin membrane with nanoscale crumples, providing an increased surface area for filtering substances that remains strong and does not buckle — even under extreme pressures.
The Zeta Plus Encapsulated System is a single-use depth filtration system designed for the bioprocessing industry where upstream cell culture clarification or downstream impurity removal is required. The system consists of three product lines: a small system that is suitable for lab-scale production or scale-up studies; and two larger systems that are designed for production-scale biomanufacturing.
Robust and lightweight, Kartell Buchner Funnels are designed for ease of use in the Buchner Filtration process.
Suitable for filtration of cell suspensions, the Greiner Bio-One EASYstrainer comes in mesh sizes of 40, 70 and 100 µ which are colour coded for easy size identification. The high-quality strainers fit all standard 50 mL tubes and come in individual, easy-to-open blister packs.
Modern diesel filtration systems, like the HYDAC Diesel Precare (HDP), ensure vehicle manufacturers and operators are protected from operation malfunctions, failures and expensive service operations. The product offers good performance data through a two-stage water separation as well as good filtration behaviour through the use of synthetic media.
In order to meet the standards for diesel fuel, the fuel must be filtered and dewatered at every stage of the transport chain. The HYDAC product range includes the filters, fluid conditioning units and sensors necessary to do this.
The automatic back-flushing filter AutoFilt RF3 series is suitable for use in process technology. It has a flow-optimised design and the advantage of conical, slotted tube filter elements in stainless steel, providing consistent flow characteristics and good filtration and back-flushing characteristics.
The disposable Vivaspin Turbo 15 is suited for protein, virus or nanoparticle concentration as well as desalting, dialysis and buffer exchange. It is available in a range of volumes from 4 to 15 mL and permits quick, easy and complete recovery of the concentrate.
Osmosis - the flow of a solvent across a semi-permeable membrane from a region of lower to higher solute concentration - is a well-developed concept in physics and biophysics. The problem is that, even though the concept is important to plant and human physiology, osmosis is understood in biology and chemistry in a much simpler - and often incorrect - way.
Advantec’s mixed cellulose ester (MCE) pleated band sterile membranes are said to offer the same high quality and reliability as the individually wrapped MCE membranes which Advantec industry partners have used for many years.
HYDAC has developed an element technology which inhibits the phenomenon of electrostatic discharge in filter elements, thus reducing the charges in the oil.
Sartorius Stedim Biotech has launched the Sartoguard NF prefilter series, completing its range of Sartoguard prefilters. The product features a combination of high-performance polyethersulfone (PES) membranes and innovative nanofleece technology.
The Hydac FluidAqua Mobil FAM 5 serves to dewater, degas and filter hydraulic and lubricating fluids. It is small and easy to use, making it a convenient option.
Sartorius Stedim Biotech has announced the sterilising-grade filters Sartopore Platinum. The surface of the polyethersulfone filter membrane has been modified using a hydrophilic and highly thermostable polymer, giving the membrane good wetting properties and minimising its protein binding.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched the Thermo Scientific Titan3 and Target2 ranges of single-use syringe filters for sample preparation. These more robust syringe filters enhance sample preparation workflow by accommodating greater burst pressures and providing good flow-through characteristics.
