How to Choose High-Quality Syringe Filters for Ion Chromatography?

In the ion chromatography process meant for separating the polar molecules and ions, the right selection of syringe filters can make a lot of difference. It ensures that the microorganisms and sample particles are removed completely during sample preparation. This process is effectively used for various applications in clinical studies, industrial testing, and pharmaceutical development. Also, it is used for water analysis, environment testing, distillation, protein purification, ion analysis in different fields, and quality controls. Here are the points for selecting the high-quality syringe filters:

Consider the Membrane Material:

In the ion chromatography, the chemistry and type of solution can largely affect the membrane selection. You should keep this factor in mind. Some membranes have high protein binding capability while others are known for their hydrophobic materials. There is a wide range to choose. Each material has its own specific characteristics and chemical compatibility. They include:

  • Cellulose Acetate for aqueous solutions or biological samples
  • Glass fibers for viscous samples and samples with large particulates
  • Nylon for analytical applications.
  • PES for dissolution testing and compatibility with a wide range of solvents.
  • PP for biological and aqueous samples.
  • PTFE for sample preparation and analysis of dissolution samples.
  • PVDF for chromatographic performance, especially in HPLC applications.

Consider the Pore Size:

It is very important to select the right pore size to maintain accuracy in the ion chromatography applications. Here, the type and size of particulate can largely affect your selection. For routine sterilization, you can use high-quality syringe filters with a pore size of 0.2 micron. For ion chromatography, you may need the size variations that include 0.05, 0.10, 0.22, 0.45, 0.70, 0.80, and up to 10-micron of pore size.

Consider the Diameter:

The size of syringe filter should be appropriate to hold the samples. If you try to push more sample volume through the filter, you’ll need more membrane area as well. The diameter varies from 4mm to 17mm, 20mm, 25mm, and 30mm. This selection will also affect the cost and holdup volume of the filter. Hence, you should select it wisely. Choose the diameter that is slightly larger than the sample volume.

Choose Between Sterile and Non-Sterile Filter:

Lastly, you need to decide between the sterile and non-sterile filters. It depends on the specific applications the filter is intended to perform. Sterile filters are ideal for sterilization of the biological solutions. They have a longer shelf life as well. On the other hand, non-sterile filters are used for particle removal, filtration, or clarification from HPLC and gas chromatography solvents.
These are some basic factors that you must keep in mind for selecting the best filter syringes to suit your specific applications. Prefer buying the certified products manufactured by a trusted company holding years of experience in this industry.
