Cellulose Acetate (CA) Membrane


Cobetter Cellulose Acetate (CA) Filtration Membrane is unsupported, hydrophilic membrane. Composed of pure cellulose acetate, the membrane has dimensional stability and naturally low protein binding.

This provides higher throughput than competitor offerings and reduces the amount of filter changes needed during filtration of proteinaceous solutions. It is ideal for use in filtration applications where maximal recovery of protein is critical. Due to its low binding capability, CA membrane is the best choice for sterile filtration of aqueous solutions,such as buffers,serum and cell culture media.

In addition,CA membrane combines good chemical resistance ranging from PH4-8, high flow rates and thermal stability, therefore is ideally suitable for pressure filtration devices, like syringe filters, disposable vacuum filter funnels etc.

Besides general filtration,Cellulose acetate (CA) membrane can be also made into sterile gridded filters,which is widely used for colony counting in microbiology testing. CA membrane has very pure and nature characteristic,so it features outstanding recovery rate for microorganisms and absolute filtration efficiency.

Cobetter CA Membrane is available in roll form, as well as in sheets and disks that can be customized to meet your application and size requirements.
