PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., March 07, 2011 - Pall Corporation (NYSE:PLL) will present a suite of advanced filtration products to optimize laboratory processes at the 2011 Pittcon Conference and Expo. Scientists from around the world will gather at Pittcon 2011 to learn about the latest technology and instrumentation for life sciences. The conference will take place at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, from March 13-18.
Highlights of Pall’s product showcase (Pittcon booth 2353) will include the following:
AcroPrep™ Advance Filter Plates provide high performance membranes in an optimized filter plate configuration for diagnostic, genomic and protein applications. New sealing technology and advanced tip design result in faster, uniform filtration rates, improving well-to-well, plate-to-plate and lot-to-lot consistency.
Pall’s new Microsep™ Advance and Macrosep® Advance Ultrafiltration Centrifugal Devices simplify many common nucleic acid and protein handling procedures, facilitating higher volumes of pure product and high recovery rates of up to 90%. Ultrafiltration reduces the amount of handling that can cause damage to samples, leaving concentrated samples ready for direct incorporation into downstream applications at critical stages in the discovery process. Pall’s microfiltration centrifugal devices are used in separation and small-scale general filtration procedures, and can be combined with chromatography resins to create a fast, efficient method for purifying proteins.
High performance Acrodisc® PSF Syringe Filters expedite automated sample processing and clarification. The automation-certified Acrodisc filter is more retentive than standard 25 mm devices and is available with single-layered membranes or multi-layered glass fiber prefilters. Engineered for retention efficiency, Acrodisc PSF syringe filters with GHP membrane extend column life by as much as 46 times and provide two to four times the throughput of standard glass fiber prefilter devices. Also HPLC and ion chromatography certified, the Acrodisc filter is available with GHP hydrophilic polypropylene membrane for maximum chemical compatibility, fast flow rates, low protein binding, and low levels of UV-absorbing extractables.
“Pall filtration products are staples in our customers’ QC and research laboratories. Our newest products improve the efficiency and profitability of laboratory processes at all levels,” said Larry O’Connell, senior vice president global lab products.
