Cellulose Acetate (CA)

Cellulose Acetate (CA)

Cellulose acetate is a very low protein binding membrane that is ideal for aqueous based samples and biological samples. It is a lower protein binder than either polyethersulphone or PVDF membranes, suitable for protein recycling applications, but has a lower chemical resistance than regenerated cellulose. CA is a strong membrane mechanically and hydrophilic. It also has excellent throughput.

Use with: Aqueous samples

Don't use with: Organic solvents (Because CA has limited resistance to organic solvents)

Sterilisation: Syringe filters can be sterilised by autoclave at 125°c for 20 minutes. Disposable filter kits and bottle top filters come in sterile packaging.

Applications: Biological samples; tissue culture media filtration; preparation of aqueous samples for HPLC; protein recycling applications; Enzymatic filtration solution, diagnostic cytology or binding of receptors.
