Faster Sample Processing Compared to Manual Syringe Filtration

Using the steps indicated (below the table*), sample processing time was compared between the Samplicity® G2 filtration system and manual syringe filtration, processing eight samples at a time, using a variety of Millex® device types** and test solutions. The Samplicity® G2 filtration system afforded time savings in all cases tested.
