Automation compatible filter units from Millipore are specially designed to provide efficient filtration for dissolution and other automated sample preparation applications.
Choice of Filter Media
Automation compatible filter units are available in a variety of membrane types and pore sizes, including units with prefilters for particulate-laden samples.
Automation Compatible Packaging
The 200 pack comes preassembled in 8 tubes of 25 each. (The 1000 pack is supplied bulk.)
Some manufacturers’ filter units have a square edge on the housing that can jam in the dispensing carousel. Automation compatible filter units from Millipore have a domed housing to ensure reliable delivery .
Filter units with “ears” on the Luer-Lok connection can get stuck in automation equipment. Filter units with Luer slip configurations can have unwanted angular movement. Millipore has optimized the Luer-Lok connection on automation compatible Millex filter units to ensure precise alignment and smooth functioning.
Automation compatible filters from Millipore are subject to stringent quality controls, including tests to ensure the filter housing can withstand backpressure from the filtration station. The housings of other manufacturers’ filter units are less rigid, which can cause a workstation to shut down.
Some PTFE membrane containing products may be limited to specific applications. Those products will contain an inset specifying the limits of use.
Automation-compatible, non-sterile Millex® syringe filter units provide efficient filtration for dissolution testing and other automated sample preparation applications, especially for pharmaceutical product analysis. These filters feature high-density polyethylene housing and a wide choice of membrane types, with or without prefilters, to fit any application need. The filters are designed with a pressure-resistant, domed housing and an optimized Luer-Lok® connection to ensure reliable delivery by automated systems.
