Performance

VacuCap® 90 Device Filtration Efficiency

(RPMI 1640 + 10% Newborn Calf Serum)



VacuCap 90 Device Filtration Capacity

(100% Newborn Calf Serum)



VacuCap 90 (0.2 μm) filter device performance as compared to that of competitive vacuum filter units with 0.2 μm Cellulose Acetate membrane. Filtration conducted at 21 °C (70 °F) and 38 cm Hg (15 in. Hg) vacuum. Volumes reflect a filtration time of five minutes.


VacuCap 90 PF Device Filtration Efficiency

(RPMI + 10% Calf Serum)



VacuCap 90 PF Device Filtration Capacity

(100% Calf Serum)



Filtration conducted at 21 °C (70 °F), 50 cm Hg (20 in. Hg) vacuum, five minute filtration time. Actual results may vary depending upon type and concentration of serum, liquid temperature, and applied vacuum.


Basic Procudures

  1. Connect the feed tubing to the port marked “INLET” on the VacuCap device. Place the opposite end of the tubing in the unfiltered fluid to be drawn. 
    Connect the feed tubing on the VacuCap device
  2. Connect the vacuum tubing to the port marked “VACUUM” on the VacuCap device. Refer to product insert for safety precautions.
    Connect the vacuum tubing on the VacuCap device
  3. While holding the VacuCap device securely onto the filtrate container, start the vacuum. The VacuCap device will seal securely to the container top and fluid will be drawn.
  4. When filtration is complete, switch off the vacuum pump allowing the vacuum inside the receiving container to dissipate. Refer to the product insert for complete instructions.
