The Whatman® CLYDE™ hand operated filter system offers a convenient way of filtering up to 2 liters of most aqueous solutions especially when filter pumps are not available. CLYDE™ comes ready to use with a syringe pump/reservoir, a three-way connector, a check valve, a length of tubing and a 50mm 0.2µm filter device. Sterilization with the 0.2µm device will provide log reduction values (LRVs) of 7 per HIMA recommended methods. The filter features a low protein binding membrane protected by a glass microfiber prefilter for high throughput. The housing incorporates a securing "ring seal" around the circumference.
Typical applications for CLYDE™ include water testing, urine, serums, enzymes, hormones, biologicals, salt solutions, tissue culture media, reagent preparation, etc. CLYDE™ is biosafe, sterile and pretested. A protective sheath makes the outlet side of CLYDE™ a sterile chamber and provides protection against touch contamination.
Each unit is packaged in a sterile, nonpyrogenic bag.
