No, cell culture syringe filter can not be reused.
Cell culture syringe filter need to be sterile to avoid bringing useless microorganisms to cell culture. Therefore, from production to packaging, Filson always carries out in sterile environment.
Choose the most appropriate cell culture syringe filter, you need to consider the following factors:
- Membrane material: It must be compatible with cell cultures and solution with which it contacts. You should consider the chemical compatibility, temperature resistance, hydrophilic nature, protein binding rate and other factors about filtration membrane.
- Connection method: There are two common connection ways: double luer lock and luer lock/luer slip. Double luer locks provide safer and stronger connections to be used for applications that require online filtering. Female luer lock and male luer slip provide sealing connections that can be widely used in different applications.
- Core size: Core size of syringe filter is determined according to the size of impurity particles. If sterilization is required, selecting syringe filter of 0.22 micron and 0.45 micron; if larger particles, use syringe filter of 5 micron and 10 micron. The suitable choices should according to the actual situation.
- Diameter: Diameters of cell culture syringe filter determine fluid volume and flow rate that the filter can handle. Samples less than 2 ml are suitable with 4mm syringe filter, and syringe filter with 50mm diameter can filter up to 5 L of samples.
- Other factors: For example, whether the sample contains heavy particles and requires pre-filtration; providing sterile filtration; wetting the filter membrane in advance to make it hydrophilic, etc.
All of the syringe filters used in cell culture field are hydrophilic.
It should be noted that PTFE is naturally hydrophobic, and it needs to be pre-moistened early with alcohol or water to make it hydrophilic.
Filson follows standards disinfection procedures strictly and package the cell culture syringe filter separately.
- Rinse in 75% ethanol solution.
- Ethylene oxide gas sterilization.
- 121℃ or 134℃ steam for 15-30 minutes.
