The Sartoclear DynamicsLab P15 has been a lifesaver for me!
Application Area: Phage isolation for use in phage DNA isolation
"The Sartoclear Dynamics Lab P15 is an easy to use, cost effective method to purify bacteriophage/phage from complex mixtures such as bacterial lysates and soil enrichments. This system bypasses the need for centrifugation of lysates, which saves a significant amount of time when there are multiple phage preparations. In addition, this system can be used in areas or in classrooms where a high-speed centrifuge is not available. This system is very easy to operate and undergraduate students have high success with purification of phage using the Sartoclear DynamicsLab P15. Recovery of phage is excellent and it is cost effective because the filtration system has a connected clarification step and filtration system. This combination results in significantly reduced clogging of the filter and so multiple filters are not needed for phage preparation filtration. The product support from Sartorius is impressive, with local representatives that will visit and demonstrate the product and will follow up to answer questions and assist as needed."
The Sartoclear Dynamics® Lab V Kits combine the use of a filter aid for clarification and a vacuum filtration unit with a 0.22 μm polyethersulfone membrane for sterile filtration of up to 1 L of mammalian cell cultures. The filter aid is provided in pouches ready-to-use, dust-free and gamma irradiated. The accompanying pre-sterilized, Sartolab® RF bottle-top filters with receiving flasks are available in capacities ranging from 150 mL to 1,000 mL.
