Nearly 20% more filter surface area than our 25 mm diameter filters
Sterile Millex filter units are available in a larger 33 mm housing with either MCE, PVDF or PES membranes.
The larger filter surface area increases flow rate and throughput. It also makes it easier to filter solutions because it reduces the pressure required to empty the syringe.
Millex filters have a maximum housing pressure of 10.5 bar (150 psig), which means you can filter solutions faster than before.
The color-coded band on the Millex housing clearly indicates which membrane is inside.
Millex filters are manufactured in a controlled environment using an automated process. Human hands never touch the filter during assembly. A Certificate of Quality included in each box describes Millipore’s quality standards in detail.
Millex filters are available with three membranes: Millipore Express® (PES) membrane, mixed cellulose esters (MCE), and Durapore (PVDF).
