How To Choose Right Syringe Filter — Chemical Compatibility

Choose The Right Syringe Filter For Your Liquid Or Gas

Syringe filters are normally used in scientific research laboratories to remove certain sized particles or bacteria from certain volume of liquid or gas prior to analysis or cell culture. Syringe filters are popularly used in HPLC analysis. In cell culture hood syringe filters are normally used to sterilized a small amount of liquids, dissolved drugs, etc. Syringe filters are normally in conjunction with a syringe which uses pressure to push aqueous solutions through the filter to remove particles or bacteria.

In this blog we talk about the chemical compatibility with syringe filters made of different materials. Pleas also check our another blog about how to choose correct pore sizes for filtering liquids. For education purpose you may be interested in the filters made with different materials.

When filtering samples choose right membrane filter is very important. If you choose wrong syringe filters your filtration will be failed, which can waste a lot of time and money since liquids are normally very expensive.

Green BioResearch provides cost-effective non-sterile and individual packed sterile syringe filters from Nylon, PES, PP, PTFE, PVDF, RC, etc.
