The Autofil™ Laboratory Filtration System is the latest addition to the growing line of Microbiology and Life Science products from Sterlitech Corporation. Vacuum-operated and designed to eliminate spills and contamination, the Autofil™ System features an ergonomically designed bottle and a stable pedestal that enables hands-free operation. This makes the system ideal for the preparation of buffers, tissue culture media, microbiological media and other biological fluids.
“Other disposable vacuum filtration systems were susceptible to being knocked over and needed constant attention during operation,” remarked Mark Spatz, president of Sterlitech. “The Autofil System prevents spills and contamination and raises the bar for usability and versatility.”
The complete system consists of a disposable Autofil™ filter funnel, a disposable SECUREgrasp™ bottle, and the Quick-Connect™ Pedestal. The disposable components of the system are sold conveniently pre-sterilized. The filter funnel is also available as a stand-alone filter that is compatible with any 45 thread bottle. A surfactant-free, low-protein-binding polyethersulfone (PES) membrane is incorporated in the filter funnel and is available in both 0.22 μm and 0.45 μm pore sizes.
