Choosing the Proper Laboratory Supracap™ Depth Filter Capsules

Supracap 50 & Supracap 100 Depth Filter

Cell cultures, fermentation broths, and cell lysates often contain large number of particulates that makes them difficult to filter using standard membrane filters. Instead, depth filtration is more appropriate for these samples.


Depth filtration adds a third dimension, thickness, to the filter sheet, which enables trapping of particulate matter both at the filter surface and throughout the filter media to increase the dirt holding capacity.

Supracap 50 & Supracap 100 Depth Filter Capsules

  • Provide depth filtration options for volumes ranging from 1-3 L up to 100 L
