Many customers working on small volumes of 30 – 50 mL must filter multiple samples at the same time. This creates a critical pain point in handling: Each unit must be attached to a vacuum tube, then stabilized before filtration and then disconnected again before attaching the next unit to the vacuum source.

Sartorius facilitates the filtration of these smaller sample volumes through the introduction of the new Sartolab® MultiStation, a stand that enables hands-free and parallel filtration of up to six samples.

The MultiStation, in combination with the 50 mL vacuum filtration units & the DE filter aid, is the perfect tool for customers struggling with processing many small samples of mammalian cell cultures. The Sartoclear Dynamics® lab V50 kits do not only eliminate the centrifugation step but, together with the MultiStation, facilitate the filtration, avoiding extra time typically consumed for connection and stabilization.

This new product provides a rapid, user-friendly solution unique to the market to simplify and expedite your routine filtration work in the lab!
