MSE provides the best value on GVS Filter Technology products.

GVS Extracto Vacuum Filters are designed specifically for the filtration of culture media and organic solvents in research and industrial laboratories. It’s purpose-built with features designed to bring the highest levels of performance and purity to your research.

A variety of membrane types and membrane areas are for choice that offer a wide applicability range for the separation and purification of most liquid samples to meet different laboratory needs.

All the products are sterile and manufactured with high-quality material [Acrilonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polypropylene (PP), or Polystyrene (GPPS)] and by proven techniques, which assure they work under pressure and still hold integrity.

      Available Membranes

      MCE (Mixed Cellulose Ester)

      By the mixture of nitrocellulose and cellulose acetate, hydrophilic, chemical compatibility, low protein adsorption. The use temperature can not be higher than 40°C, the optimum pH range is 3-6. For particle analysis, particle removal, biochemical analysis, HPLC sample preparation for general media, and aqueous solutions. Can not be used to filter ethanol and alkaline solution.


      Providing a broad range of chemical compatibility of the filtration of either aqueous or organic solvents, hydrophilic, can be used in a broad pH range.

      PVDF (Polyvinylidene fluoride)

      Extremely low protein-binding, for filtration of non-aggressive aqueous and mild organic solutions, or where maximizing protein recovery is important.

      PES (Polyethersulfone)

      Low-affinity for proteins and extractable with substantially faster flow rates than PVDF; suitable for pre-filtration and filtration of buffers and culture media.

      PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene)

      Extremely strong chemically resistant and is compatible with various sterilizing methods; ideal for gas and inorganic or organic samples in aggressive environments.

      CA (Cellulose Acetate) & SFCA (Surfactant-Free Cellulose Acetate)

      Lowest binding material available, it is hydrophilic with high throughput strength and dimension stability; uniform pore structure.
