With EASYstrainer™ Greiner Bio-One introduces a novel product for fast and safe filtration of cell suspensions such as after tissue dissociation or in preparation of flow cytometry. The filter is suitable for all standard 50 ml tubes and is available in filter mesh widths of 40, 70 and 100 μm.
The innovative design of EASYstrainer™ allows for secure aseptic handling with a clearly reduced risk of contaminating the filtered cell suspension. In particular, a circumferential mantle surface and an additional handle can be used to grip the device firmly without getting in contact with the wetted filter material. Furthermore, the single blister pack allows for convenient and aseptic removal of the strainer. A striking feature of EASYstrainer™ is its venting slot between tube and filter. This feature guarantees air leaving the tube readily while filtrated solution flows through the mesh. Thus, problems seen with other strainer brands such as liquid trapping between tube and filter as well as overspill of cell suspension are things of the past.
• Three color-coded mesh sizes • Fits all standard 50 ml tubes • Handle and mantle surface for improved aseptic handling • Venting slot for fast filtration • No liquid overspill • Convenient blister pack
