Membrane-sample Compatibility

It’s easy to overlook membrane compatibility when picking out your filter or device for your sample filtration.

Good membrane-sample compatibility supports efficient filtration and minimizes resistance, while poor compatibility might result in backpressure, ineffective filtration, or even chemical attack of your membrane, leading to contamination of your filtrate.

Here, we’ve created a quick reference membrane filtration guide, listing membranes’ compatible (and incompatible) solvents, helping you choose the most appropriate membrane for your sample.
