Product News: Pall Life Sciences Showcases New Contamination Control and Sample Prep Products at ASM General Meeting

16 May 2011

Pall Corporation will present advanced filtration products to optimize laboratory processes at the 2011 American Society for Microbiology General Meeting. The meeting will take place at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans from May 21-24.

Highlights of Pall’s product showcase (ASM booth 1233) will include the following:

Sentino™ Microbiology Pump maximizes workspace and minimizes contamination risk. Our new compactly-designed pump has a small footprint offering large flexibility in workspace efficiency and workflow. The Pump’s fluid path is completely disposable to eliminate potential biofilm build-up, thereby eliminating a chance for contamination.

GeneDisc® Rapid Microbiology System provides rapid, reliable results in as little as two hours. Our microbiology system enables a highly simplified operation with consistently reproducible results. The system is based on real-time quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR) technology.

AcroPrep™ Advance Filter Plates provide high performance membranes in an optimized filter plate configuration for diagnostic, genomic and protein applications. New sealing technology and advanced tip design result in faster, uniform filtration rates, improving well-to-well, plate-to-plate and lot-to-lot consistency.

Pall’s new Microsep™ Advance and Macrosep® Advance Ultrafiltration Centrifugal Devices simplify many common nucleic acid and protein handling procedures, facilitating higher volumes of pure product and high recovery rates of up to 90%. Ultrafiltration reduces the amount of handling that can cause damage to samples, leaving concentrated samples ready for direct incorporation into downstream applications at critical stages in the discovery process. Pall’s microfiltration centrifugal devices are used in separation and small-scale general filtration procedures, and can be combined with chromatography resins to create a fast, efficient method for purifying proteins.
