Advantec's pleated band membranes offer the same high quality and reliability as the individually wrapped MCE membranes that you are used to. The pleated band MCE for dispenser provides hands-free convenience and increased efficiency as well as reducing the risk of membrane contamination from handling.
Mixed Cellulose Esters (MCE) membrane is a general purpose filter used in many applications for the microbiological examination of water, wastewater, pharmaceuticals, food, and beverages. The membrane not only has high recovery rates, its high porosity provides superior flow rates as well.
White MCE membranes are widely used for the purpose of enumeration of microorganisms and to view color reactions. This is the filter of choice for the examination of water and wastewater and applications in the pharmaceutical, medical, food, and beverage industries.
The use of a balck membrane helps minimize eye fatigue and can assist with counting colonies by providing a color contrast between the filter and microorganism, yeast, and mold without the need for a counter-stain. This is the filter of choice for the examination of bottled water, carbonated beverages, beer, and wine.
Quality Assurance Certification
Advantec membranes were developed and are manufactured to comply with the ASTM and the Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater. We manufacture our filter products to exacting standards and have established quality control specifications to assure you of product consistency, reproducibility, uniform performance, and superior product integrity. Advantec facilities manufacture under a strict quality management system and are ISO 9001 approved. Quality control tests are performed on each lot and a QA Certificate is available upon request.
Ethylene oxide (EtO) gas
47mm membranes are available in white or black and in 0.45µm or 0.80µm pore sizes. Contrasting grid lines facilitate counting colonies are are tested to assure freedom from grid line inhibition. 3.1mm squares represent 1/100 of the filtration area of a 47mm diameter filter (9.6cm2). White 0.80µm have green grid lines. All other combinations have black grid lines.
