We believe that the competitive costs of the modules, excellent recoveries and simplified workflows will quickly bring Cryptonite to the front of the pack
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) June 6, 2009
ElutraSep, Inc. today announced the commercial launch of the Cryptonite™ HV Filter Module for Cryptosporidium and Giardia testing. http://www.elutrasep.com/app-Cryptosporidium.asp
Cryptonite™ HV is a hollow fiber filtration module designed to capture and concentrate Cryptosporidium and Giardia from non-filtered source and finished water samples. Cryptonite™ HV recently underwent method development for method 1623 at an internationally recognized EPA approved laboratory located in Saint Albans, Vermont.
Testing of the new Cryptonite™ HV filter exceeded the recovery requirements set forth for EPA method 1623 and will now allow laboratories an additional choice for sample concentration. Cryptonite™ offers advantages including a recovery procedure with a total elution volume of less than 50 milliliters, no specialized elution equipment or post filtration required and a start to finish process that can be completed in about two minutes.
"We were always aware of the potential benefits that our technology could bring to the EPA 1623 method but lacked a high volume design that could accommodate turbid source waters. Last year, we began the process of designing a high volume module that would be cost competitive and offer substantial advantages over the competition," said Jason Holt, president and CEO of ElutraSep. " Laboratories will no longer have to conduct tedious elution protocols or have to deal with hundreds of milliliters of elution volumes. Module shakers, wash stations and multiple backwashing steps will be a thing of the past," said Jason. "We believe that the competitive costs of the modules, excellent recoveries and simplified workflows will quickly bring Cryptonite to the front of the pack".
