NYLON LOW EXTRACTABLES (LE) • Superior to Nylon 66 membranes • Nylon-LE is a unique unsupported Nylon membrane • Does not release significant levels of extractables when in contact with acetonitrile • Suitable for use with any HPLC sample or solvent • The elimination of the polyester support in these Q-Fil filters, combined with the unique surface characteristics of this new membrane, eliminates many of the extractables found in Nylon membranes and results in a much cleaner filtrate
The Q-Fil range of Certified Syringe Filters set the new Quality standard for today’s laboratory syringe filters. Manufactured from the highest quality medical grade high density polypropylene Q-Fil Certified Syringe Filters provide excellent chemical compatibility with acids, alcohols, bases, ethers, glycols, ketones and oils, with maximum operating temperatures of 135°C. Every colour-coded filter is printed with the individual batch number, details of the membrane material and its pore size, on the outside rim of the filter, making them unique for traceability, GLPs and validation purposes. Q-Fil Certified Syringe Filters - • Manufactured in compliance with ISO 9001:2000 quality procedures. • Are supplied with a Certificate of Analysis and Conformance to guarantee its batch to batch quality and performance. • Are available in the most popular sizes, porosities and membrane types. • Provide excellent resistance to all routinely used HPLC solvents. • Have filter housings manufactured from high density medical grade polypropylene. • Contain extremely low level of extractables for highly sensitive work. • Luer connections fully comply with ISO 594-1. • Filters are available with standard and 'Slim Tip' sized outlets.

Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.Cytoskeleton Crew Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.Microbiome May Hold the Key to Fighting Obesity In a unique study of free-ranging brown bears, Swedish researchers were able to show that the bears’ dietary variation goes hand-in-hand with dramatic changes in the animal’s gut microbiota.Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.Toxicity Testing With Cultured Liver Cells Microreactor replaces animal testing. Proteins Seek, Attack, Destroy Tumor Cells in Bloodstream Using white blood cells to ferry potent cancer-killing proteins through the bloodstream virtually eliminates metastatic prostate cancer in mice, Cornell researchers have confirmed. Why Do Some Infections Persist? In preparing for the possibility of an antibiotic onslaught, some bacterial cultures adopt an all-for-one/one-for-all strategy that would make a socialist proud, University of Vermont researchers have found. Flipping Molecular 'Switch' May Reduce Nicotine's Effects in the Brain Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have discovered that a lipid (fat molecule) in brain cells may act as a “switch” to increase or decrease the motivation to consume nicotine.TSRI Team Comes Together with Rare Disease Community Don’t worry, science fiction fans, the machines aren’t taking over quite yet. It turns out humans still beat computers at reading and comprehending text.
