A disposable filter for separating cells and nuclei. Its porous membrane has an effective surface area of 80 mm2, enabling large quantities of cell suspensions to be filtered.
The microporous polyethylene funnel section is designed to pass the biological material to be retrieved while trapping waste particles under 1.5µm in size. Filcons filters must not be used more than once, as subsequent specimens could be contaminated. Before use, dampen the Filcons filter membrane with the cell or nuclei suspension medium. Filcons filters with syringe fittings can be used in either suction or compression. Maximum pressure is 25 psi (1.8 bar). Whichever method is employed, is recommended anyway to use the syringe as a reservoir without applying pressure to the plunger, so that the specimen is allowed to percolate through. For quantities of less than 5 ml the cup-type Filcons filter should be used.
A disposable filter for separating cells and nuclei. Its porous membrane has an effective surface area of 660 mm2, enabling large quantities of cell suspensions to be filtered.
The microporous polyethylene funnel section is designed to pass the biological material to be retrieved while trapping waste particles under 1.5μm in size. Filcons-Max must not be used more than once, as subsequent specimens could be contaminated. Before use, dampen the filter membrane with the medium that is going to be used for filtration. Filcons-Max are only available as cup-type. They fit perfectly the 50 ml tubes as indicated in the pictures All packages contain 100 units. Non sterile Filcons-max are packed in 20 units/bag, Sterile FIlcons-Max are packed 1 unit/blister.
After disaggregation of the tissue in the Medicons, the cell suspension is filtered using a Filcon disposable filter device. Depending upon the chosen Filcon pore size, cells or cell aggregates pass through, while larger particles are trapped. There are two types of Filcons: a syringe-fitting form which can be used with either suction or compression, which works well for quantities over 5 mL, and a cup type that works well for small quantities.
Before use, wet the Filcons filter membrane with cell suspension buffer to reduce the surface tension and facilitate the filtration process.
Isolation of nuclei, cells, and cell clusters can be achieved by varying the Filcons pore size
