Sterile Mid-volume Filtration Samples

AcroPak 20 Sterile FiltrationFor filtration up to a few liters, a range of medium-size filters are available. These are typically a flat membrane in a 50 mm or larger diameter device, and are available in configurations for either positive pressure filtration or vacuum filtration.  

Throughput* Device EFA Hold-up
10 mL - 1 L AcroCap™ Device 15 cm2 < 2 mL
100 mL - 5 L AcroPak™ 20 Device 20 cm2 < 2.5 mL
100 mL - 5 L VacuCap® 60 Device 30 cm2 < 1.2 mL
100 mL - 5 L VacuCap 90 Device 60 cm2 < 3.4 mL
5 - 25 L AcroPak 200 Capsule 200 cm2 < 6 mL

* Total throughput (capacity) of a filter depends on the characteristics of the fluid being filtered, such as the extent of microbial contamination, viscosity, and particulate load.
