|How can I dispose of a used Minicon device?||You can dispose of a Minicon by autoclaving it or incinerating it.|
|Are the Minicon test results quantitative?||No. There is some nonspecific binding of solute on the membrane as well as non-recoverable film loss due to wetting of the chamber that is not recoverable.|
|Can I use Minicon after its expiration date?||It is not recommended. The flow rates will slow down after the expiration date.|
|Can Minicon be reused?||Yes. The unused chambers can be used if a bacteriastat such as sodium azide is added to any used chamber and the Minicon is stored refrigerated.|
|Can the Minicon cell be refilled? How many times?||Yes, the units can be refilled. See the following chart for specific devices. Minicon - B15 2 times Minicon - CS15 2 times Minicon - A25 3 times Miniplus 2 times|
|Does the Minicon cell have to be pressurized in order to concentrate the sample?||No, the absorbent material in the device pulls solvent and microsolute through the ultrafilter, concentrating the sample.|
|How many tests are there in each Minicon?||The number of tests vary with the device. See below for details.
|How long does it take to concentrate spinal fluid in a Minicon device?||Typical concentration times are listed as follows: 20 minutes 2X concentration 90 minutes 20X concentration 4 hours 80X concentration|
|How much sample does each Minicon test cell hold?||The maximum cell capacities are as follows:
|Which Minicon do I use?||The Minicon unit you chose should be based on the fluid being processed. See below.
Urine - B15 or Miniplus
Cerebrospinal Fluid - B15 or CS15
Dilute body fluid - A25
