Gelatine Membrane Filters

Gelatine filters in conjunction with the MD8 air samplers (gelatine filter method) are used for collection of airborne microbes and viruses - individually, sterile packaged membranes guarantee reliable and accurate results

    • Absolute' retention rate (99.9995% for Bac. sub. niger, 99.94% for T3 phages)
    • The filter maintains the viability of collected microorganisms for a relevant and meaningful sampling time
    • Gelatine filters are completely water-soluble, therefore microbes in one sample can be cultivated in/on different nutrient media or low and high bacteria counts can be measured - the sample is not affected by inhibitors
    • The solubility of the gelatine filter is a prerequisite for virus sampling
