Sartorius Stedim Biotech

Microsart® @vance® is a new product line designed for microbiological quality control in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries. The single-use filter units, Microsart @filter 100 and 250, have been developed for the detection and enumeration of microorganisms. The design of the filter unit allows the entire sample to be filtered without any liquid retained on the funnel walls. The filter and funnel form an all-in-one, sterile unit and thus minimize the risk of secondary contamination. The cellulose nitrate (cellulose ester) membrane combines retention of microorganisms with high flow rates and colony growth. Its printed grid facilitates colony counting. Microsart @filter products are useful for sample volumes of up to 100 mL and 250 mL, and their membranes are available in a choice of pore sizes and filter colors.
