Life science group Sartorius has launched a new series of vacuum filtration units designed to offer faster and higher capacity filtration with greater physical stability for a wide range of sample types.
Modifications to the Sartolab RF|BT 150 - 1000 include:
- A larger membrane surface area for optimal filtration
- Replacement of the 0.45 micrometre cellulose acetate membrane with a 0.45 µm polyethersulfone membrane to increase the flow rate while maintaining low protein binding properties
- An optimised centre of gravity to increase stability
- Direct use on the Sartolab Multistation for parallel filtration
Product manager Catherine Leluan said: “The redesign exemplifies our commitment to engineer products that accelerate and streamline workflows, are user-friendly and are well-suited for the busy laboratory setting.”
Sartolab RF|BT vacuum filtration units are designed for research and filtration of small volumes from 50 ml to one litre.
The units offer the highest flow rates with a large filtration area, a low protein affinity membrane to minimise protein loss and an optimized membrane support for a low hold-up volume.
