What is a PES filter?
PES is the abbreviation for polyethersulfone, which is a hydrophilic polymer used to make PES syringe filters. These filters are mainly used in various chemical purification processes. They maintain a high level of sample purity. Therefore, they are the broad first choice for sample preparation by biotech companies.
The function and application of PES filter:
These filters are mainly used for ion chromatography filtration of protein solutions, tissue culture media, nucleic acids and tissue culture additives. They can be used as sterile or non-sterile filters. In addition, they also have male Luer sliding outlets and female Luer locking inlets, which can effectively filter laboratory samples from pharmaceutical or biotech companies. The PES syringe filter is certified and does not contain DNase and RNase.
Advantages of PES filter:
These high-efficiency filters have multiple functions and are highly efficient for various filtration methods. They are the preferred advantages:
The polyethersulfone filter has a fast filtering speed used to remove contaminant particles found in the sample. This faster filtering method ensures that less time is required to complete the entire process. Therefore, it can improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of laboratory samples.
The filter has a completely transparent membrane. Therefore, it becomes easy to identify the particles filtered from the used sample. Using PES filters can effectively complete this test.
PES filters are chemically inert. This means that these filters can be used to purify various fluids without any risk to the sample. It will not contaminate any type of sample liquid or gas. Therefore, it has proven to be particularly beneficial for samples that need to be purified before they need to be sent to the laboratory for further testing or research.
Low rate: The protein binding rate of these filters is low. When the sample is less bound, its fluidity increases, and it also has better diffusion properties. Samples purified with PES filters can produce better results by tolerating slight changes in their density-related properties.
