Vacuum filtration is a commonly used Microbiological procedure to collect microorganisms from a liquid sample on a membrane.
The vacuum pump connects to a manifold to force the liquid sample through the filtration membrane. This membrane is then deposited on a selective agar for the detection and enumeration of microorganisms. (ex. Compass CC for the detection of E.coli & coliforms or GVPC agar for the detection of Legionella)
• Maintains continuous vacuum for filtration
• Also can be used for positive pressure filtration (<60 psi)
• Oil free operation minimizes aerosol contamination
• Quiet operation
• Easy to maintain
• Portable compact design
