GVS Mixed Cellulose Esters (MCE) Filtration Membrane is an unsupported, hydrophilic membrane.

Its rapid flow rate and high throughput make it ideal for use in diagnostic kit manufacturing applications.

GVS MCE Filtration Membranes are composed of a mixture of inert cellulose nitrate and cellulose acetate polymers.

The uniform microporous structure of these filters provides the fastest flow rates and highest throughputs available in a membrane filter.

Because they are biologically inert, GVS MCE Filtration Membranes are ideal for a wide range of clarification, sterilization, and analytical applications such as microbiological analysis, clarification, or sterilization of aqueous solutions, industrial hygiene applications, silt density index, and particulate-matter analysis.

For gravimetric analysis using ashing techniques, GVS MCE Membranes yield a residue of less than 0.045% of their initial weight.

They are hydrophilic with a noncytotoxic wetting agent and yield extractable levels of less than 4% of their weight.

These membranes are autoclavable at 121°C for 20 minutes.

Sterilized product lifetime is 24 months from sterilization date.
