Use Millex® filters with the Samplicity® G2 Filtration System

Enjoy the Quality of Millex® Filters. Skip the Pain.

You trust Millex® filters for HPLC sample prep because of our highest quality design, manufacturing, materials and QC standards.

Millex® filters are known for their quality [see data]
  • Minimal hold-up volume
  • Filter and seal integrity
  • Low extractables, low binding
Millex® filters are available in a variety of membranes and polypropylene housings to ensure chemical compatibility with a range of samples and solvents.

Merck:/Freestyle/BI-Bioscience/Chromatography-Sample-Prep/Samplicity/samplicity-g2-system-with-funnels.jpgThe polypropylene adapter funnels provided for the Samplicity® G2 system are made of the same polypropylene as are Millex® filter housings. Together, the filter plus adapter are HPLC-certified to be low in extractable impurities. That means you’ll continue to enjoy clear chromatography results, without the pain of syringe filtration.

Lower Ergonomic Impact

According to a Baseline Risk Identification of Ergonomic Factors (BRIEF™) survey, the Samplicity® G2 system lowered the ergonomic impact of filtration compared to manual syringe filtration, as shown below:

Samplicity® G2 System has lower ergonomic impact than manual syringe filtration.

Sample TypeJob Hazard Score
Low (0-9) Medium (10-29) High (30-49)
Syringe Filtration of Non-viscous Sample 12.8
Syringe Filtration of Viscous Sample 16.0
Samplicity® G2 System Filtration of Viscous Sample 8.0

For reference, a task involving manipulating a heavy (13 kg) tool was found to have a medium/high job hazard score of 27.

For Ultra-Convenience, Use Millex Samplicity® Filters.

Millex Samplicity® filters for the Samplicity® G2 system take convenience in sample filtration one step further. These all-in-one filters feature:
  • Integrated funnels for easiest sample loading
  • Connected packaging in perforated strips of 8 for fastest setup
  • Quality membrane options, including PVDF (0.45 um), hydrophilic PTFE (0.45 um) and hydrophilic PTFE (0.2 um)

The Samplicity® Filtration System Reduces Waste.

Using the Samplicity® system results in a 33% reduction in waste weight and a 66% reduction in waste volume, and eliminates segregation of syringe waste. After filtration of 24 samples each by 15 users, syringes, syringe filters, and Millex Samplicity® membrane filters were collected, weighed, and placed into 10 in x 10 in x 10 in boxes to evaluate relative waste volume.
