Phenomenex has introduced the Phenex -GF/NY dual-membrane syringe filter for viscous, particulate-laden samples, suitable for use in applications such as food, drink and environmental testing.
The new filter incorporates a glass layer, through which the sample passes first for elimination of heavy particulates, increasing the effectiveness of the second, nylon fibre membrane.
By removing particulates from the sample, the syringe filter prevents build-up and blockage of chromatography columns and frits while minimizing wear and tear on injection valves.
Proper sample filtration can ultimately reduce system downtime and component replacement.
Ideal for any applications with highly viscous or heavily particulate-laden samples, such as foods, biological fluids, soil and fermentation broths, Phenex-GF/NY performs at higher capacity than nylon-only filters, and requires less hand pressure to filter the sample.
Phenex syringe filters are optimized for superior flow rates and high throughput.
