These glass microfiber filters are produced from 100% borosilicate glass microfiber without the use of binders or strengthening agents. These filters offer many advantages in a wide range of analytical applications.
The fibers used to manufacture these depth filters are smooth and uniform. This permits their characteristically high flow rates while allowing retention of exceptionally small particles and high load capacity. These characteristics are particularly important in applications involving high concentrations of particulate or gelatinous substances. In choosing the appropriate filter for a specific application, careful consideration should be given to the physical form and concentration of the material to be captured by the filter.
Frequently used in the filtration of precipitated proteins and cells. Ideally suited for use as a filter for radioimmuno assay of weak beta emitters by scintillation counting and gravimetric determination of airborne particulate. Binderless borosilicate glass microfiber.
