Advantec Membrane Filters / Borosilicate Glass Fiber filters with Hydrophilic PTFE and Sterile, Cellulose Acetate
Membrane filtration finds a wide range of use in microbiological lab analysis and experiments. A variety of options are available based on methodology and principle involved in use. Filtration and separation membranes perform their functions by retaining particles that are larger than their respective pore sizes. Hence they enable particle recovery, when the required particle diameters exceed that of the membrane under use. When choosing membranes, it is important to ensure that the structural integrity of the material used in construction is not affected by the fluid that is being filtered. Hence the properties of the membranes should be understood with relevance to the procedure being performed, to determine the selection criteria.
