Whatman filters

  1. Whatman filters


    Do they have to be sterile? GPZ is out of 0.45 micron sterile and researchkits has been having trouble filling orders lately. I can get non-sterile at GPZ. If anyone knows another place that is reliable let me know. Thanks

    They are among the best. Great service and resonable prices.

  4. Thanks bro.

  5. If they are non whatman filters, they may not filter BA correctly. Supposedly whatman is out of stock until March 1. That is why some are having a hard time filling orders. They may also try to substitute filters.

  6. Buyb12 said lion will be carrying filters soon. That is a big help.

  7. I have heard that nonsterile whatman's are ok, just not exactly preferred. That's what I just used for some test cyp, after trying to hand press it through sterile .22's

    I've got about 30 .45um sterile Whatmans left; in talks w/ a mod to see how to approach selling these, among other things. E-mail me securely at [email protected] for pricing. I've got some hi-flow .22um & .45um syringe filters a mod's trying, so if they're any good, I'm sure he'll mention them.

  9. BTW, so that bros around here know: I got the samples and will report directly.

    Chemo

  10. Nice.. just me being my nosey self and trying to score a freebie in the process..

  11. After reading candle25's thread http://www.anabolicminds.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=13012 I am worried about .45um not being sufficient for others to sterilize their product w/o fully removing spores. I called to place an order w/ Whatman to order as much remaining stock as I can afford on Whatman 25mm, .22um & .45um sterile filters (which has been discontinued; I will find out the true extent of this tomorrow morn, and post results). I called after hours, so I will find out tomorrow the story behind this "discontinuance".

    Does anyone know what is involved in killing spores? Does gamma irradiation (the industry standard for sterilization of the filtering products we purchase)? Or are they able to "get away with it" because they assemble and sterilize in a class "X" clean room? Thanks for the input.

  12. all I know is that these .22's better be "high flow", because using regular one's seems virtually impossible for me. When I used them my hand cramped up (from filtering) more than when I watch a Jenna Jameson flick

    LMAO!! That's why I haven't carried them in the first place, but now, I'm thinking pre-filter, then .22um filter to finish up. All my hi-cap. vacuum filters are .2um PVDF for sterility reasons, and can be used w/ pre-filters for longer primary filter life. They will be tested and approved by a mod first.

  14. Is the filtering and pre-filtering done with one push? or do you have to force it through one and then draw it up again to force it through again?

    A clean room takes care of most of it. A .22 and BA takes care of it for us. rember this is largely a game of numbers, IE the probability of getting a infection. it is never 0. Nor does any process get rid of everthing.
    look here (already did the research)

    I'm waiting on my 0.20um filters right now. I have some gear that has been filtered through a 0.45um filter, but the damn vile cap has a hole in it that wont close up. I'm going to filter it through a 0.20um to a new vile. I'll let you all know how it goes.

    Unfortunately, filtering would have to be done in 2 draws; nobody makes a syringe pre-filter I can find w/ a locking luer outlet (I don't know if that would work well anyway). However, filtering would be considerably easier; if that isn't good enough, I've got vacuum filtering units tailored for this size run that eliminates the hassles of syringe filtering. Will be tested, and mods will report results.

  18. Very nice I look forward to these results.

    Are you talking about those hand pump Buchner funnel type set ups? It seems like you'd lose a good bit of your gear in the funnel itself if that is what you're talking about. Plus you'd lose some more when you transfer the soln from the vacume flask to the sterile vile. I'm thinking 1-1.5 ml loss. It would be nice to have an automated system but doing it by hand isn't so hard.

    No, these are completely different (pics below)








    There is very little left in the filter, but just like w/ syringes you should run oil through filter to properly purge it. The first two units are .2um sterile filtering units; hook up a hand pump or vacuum unit/aspirator and there's no inconvenience of syringe cramps. Simply dump in top, attach vacuum, come back later. "Sterilized" filtered solution is deposited into the lower flask/tube. However, the steritop 500ml unit must be used w/ heavy glass lab bottles (I use Pyrex 1000ml lab glass bottles w/GL45 threads).

    The 3rd pic is of the hi-cap syringe filter (not the one w/ bell housing).

  21. Whatman filters -- discontinued, or just out of stock?


    Touched base w/ Whatman this morning; it seems they are out of stock until mid- to late-March, and they are NOT discontinuing the GD/X 25mm filters. They had a small remaining stock, and now it is mine.

  22. The second pic looks nice. I have an account with Fisher so I could prob order those. I only brew once or twice a year though. That is a good idea though. I might buy one.

  23. what kind of vacuum are you using bro to filter bro?

    I personally use a hospital aspirator which pulls 22"HG (200torr), but I've used it w/ a hand pump (brake bleeder pump works), takes a squeeze down every 5-10 minutes to maintain vacuum. My hi-vac pump works extremely well with this; however, I do such bulk that I have switched over to 142mm filter setup through a SS pressure vessel. The 500ml filter setup will do 1 gallon (4 liters) of raw (high-viscosity) chems before I have to change it (may need to use a space heater to keep filter & solutions warm); thinner solvents you can do more.
