Really pleased to find such a useful product.
Application Area: Concentrate and clean up protein extracts
"Easy to use - concentrated proteins quickly and effectively. The extracts can be washed easily - ideal for buffer exchange."

Good protein recovery for proteins larger than the molecular weight cut off.
Application Area:Concentrate protein solutions, and remove low molecular weight species
"Works well to concentrate a protein with a molecular weight above the cut off. Little sample loss even if cutoff is close to the molecular weight. Quite efficient at removing low molecular weight contaminants. Not very good at filtering through the species that have a molecular weight lower than the cut off. They seem to get stuck in the filter. It would be nice if there was a product that could act to specifically allow the lower molecular weight species to flow through as much as possible."

Excellent underrated protein concentrator
Application Area:Great value! Better than Millipore in recovery.
"These are excellent products, underrated compared to their competitors as they do not have the market penetration. Definitely recommended!"
Optimized Design for Fastest Concentration Results
The Vivaspin® Turbo’s optimized design, its sleek internal profile, ensures maximum process speeds right the way down to the last few micro liters. The UV joining technology allows for a smooth joint transition between membrane and plastic housing, allowing all of your valuable sample to be collected into the unique pipette friendly dead stop pocket.
The ultimate in centrifugal ultrafiltration technology:
– Sleek internal design:
Ensures maximum process speed for
the complete filtration
– Large twin vertical membranes:
A fouling of the membrane is avoided due
to minimized protein polarization.
– Unique angular dead stop pocket:
The 100 μl dead stop pocket is easy to access with standard 200 μl pipette tips due to its patent pending angular design. It eliminates the risk of the sample running to dryness while allowing highest recovery of the concentrate.
Optimized Choice of Materials for High Chemical Compatibility
The combination of Polyethersulfone (PES), Polystyrene and Polypropylene (PP) allows sterilization
and depyrogenization of the Vivaspin® Turbo 15 units.
Polyethersulfone membranes are preferred for their low fouling characteristics, exceptional flux and broad pH range compatibility.

Your sample is often the result of several months of research. Your sample is valuable, and Vivaspin® Turbo 15 provides highest
For scientists and lab technicians who need to quickly and safely concentrate biological samples of 4 ml to 15 ml up to 150 fold,
Sartorius offers the Vivaspin® Turbo 15 ultrafilters.
Unlike competitive ultrafiltration units, Vivaspin® Turbo 15 is equipped with an angular dead stop pocket, that enables reproducible and complete recoveries, while being the fastest in the market.
