SYL009 – eDNA Dual Filter Capsule


Out of stock

SKU: SYL009 Category:


This single-use DNA filter capsule is specially designed for on-site filtering of large quantities of (environmental) water with a negligible risk of cross-contamination. The enclosed filter membranes have an optimal pore size for environmental DNA (eDNA) filtration to collect all the eDNA without rapid clogging. The filter capsule is compact due to the design with two separate membranes that provide a huge membrane surface. The eDNA double filter capsule can be closed with “luer lock caps” after use,  is suitable for in capsule lysing and preserving and can be stored at room temperature. During eDNA extraction from the capsule, all solid residues remain on the membrane and do not interfere with further downstream processing. The eDNA dual filter capsule meets all requirements as stated in CEN/TC 230 – Water analysis – N 1229.
