Mixed Cellulose Esters (MCE) membrane is a general purpose filter used in many applications for the microbiological examination of water, wastewater, pharmaceuticals, food, and beverages, and air monitoring. MCE membranes offer high recovery rates and superior flow rates. Advantec MCE membranes are high purity and Triton-free.
Black MCE filters are used to enumetate yeast and bacteria in carbonated beverages, wines, and water and provides a contrast between colonies and filter without the need for counterstaining. Green MCE filters offer a pale green background for viewing black, white, and colorless particles on one filter. Contrasting grid lines facilitate counting colonies and are tested to assure freedom from grid line inhibition. 3.1mm squares represent 1/100 of the filtration area of a 47mm diameter filter (9.6cm2).
MCE membranes are manufactured to comply with the ASTM and the Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater. MCE 0.80µm filters meet NIOSH requirements for air sampling applications such as metals analysis and aesbestos monitoring.
Please Note: ALL Advantec items have a maximum 48 hour cancellation window. Any cancellations AFTER the 48 hour window will incur a restocking fee equal to the cost of the product.
