PROBLEMS ?

OK ! heat to help dissolve sample into “solvent” matrix
generally let mix cool before filtration to below << 65deg C

On-Cooling the sample itself can crystallise out and completely block the filter membrane and even the Glass Frit or support base of the filter holder

for “OILS” > the BEST
Filtration Answer

for High Speed / thru’put
PES preferred for
 “polyester” Oils

Olive Oil; Canola, Palm oil, Cottonseed
- all approx the same viscosity at 25degC 40-60cps at 25C 20-25cps at 55C

multi-Layer SF and pre-filters help preserver main and can improve flow

for auto-filling from sample reservoir - fast for thin low viscosity liquids

BTD

for thin aqueous Solutions
- Syringe Filter on Outlet of BTD - Auto-filling
- extra pressure can be applied by palm of hand to increase speed
- with CARE as device is more delicate

Hand VAC Pump
- OK for quick filtration
- a leak-free system is necessary
- can be a bit tedious

250mm Vac
but 350 typical observed

ALL filters tend to block up depending on particulates that actually block the filter pores
- use of coarser pre-filter (glass Fibre) helps speed and the total sample throughput
for best results - match the polarity of the Membrane material with the polarity of the liquid
hydrophillic          :        PES      >          Nylon      >             PVDF       >            PTFE  Hydrophobic
                                               Water-based      polar solvents       polyester Oils         Hydrocarbon-based Oils
these are but generalisations - & it’s very much “trial and error” for each application
PES : OK for medium polarity OIls; eg grapeseed etc
Plastic (Bottle-Top) Filters / Syringes >avoid use of strong solvents
eg acetone > even ethanol is suspect And/Or use of too high as vacuum 200mmHG MAX is OK
even glass bottles run the risk of imploding . . . at higher Vacuum !

The VacuCap Filter is used for sterilization or clarification of a wide variety of fluids.  use for cell culture and serum-containing media liquids

  • have a Supor (hydrophilic PES polyethersulfone) membrane which provides fast flow rates.
  • can draw directly from mix vessel and filters directly into the desired containers, minimizing transfer steps.
    accepts a variety of collection vessels.
  • VacuCap 90 Filter which is designed for volumes of 1–5L
  • have built-in prefilter that increases throughput of viscous or particulate solutions, such as serum-containing media.
  • Polyester membrane support. Acrylic housing.
  • VacuCap Filters are Sterile.
  • come with one piece of tubing per ten filter devices.
    The feedline accessory kit includes tubing and a glass sinker.

Nalgene FastCap Bottle Filter - Nalgene 298-9020 > & from Thermo

The Nalgene Fastcap Filter works on any bottle that has a neck opening of up to 53mm. The Nalgene FastCap Filter eliminates the need to use threaded glass media bottles.

Place a Nalgene FastCap filter on bottle mouth,
attach a vacuum line to the larger center vaccum hose link and your liquid media tube to the smaller tube link
and start filtering.

The Nalgene FastCap. . .

  • filters up to 5 liters of liquid.
  • Housing is blue polystyrene; the 90mm filter is made of PES (polyetheresulfone)
  • with a 0.2um pore diameter.. . . for sterility
    use with a disposable 47mm Membrane Filter where necessary
  • Each  filter is packaged in individual hermetically sealed plastic bags.
  • Nalgene FastCap filters are STERILE (gamma radiation sterilized).
     Nalgene
  • FastCap filters are sold in individual units or a case of 10 $440- per 10-pk

VacuCap & Fast Cap are very similar in principle ( supply and demand determine Supplier
and Chromtech Stock at any time)
