Membrane Filtration – Standard Test Method
for Microbial Contamination

MilliporeSigma’s membrane filtration technique complies with international standards such as Standard Methods for Examination of Water and Waste Water, US EPA, and EU testing procedures for drinking water. It’s easy-to-do: the test sample is filtered through a microporous membrane, allowing any microbial contamination to be retained on top of the membrane. Residues that might inhibit the growth of microorganisms are removed by rinsing. After the sample has been filtered, nutrient medium is added to promote the growth of contained microorganisms.
