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.
Minicon B158 tests/device
Minicon CS1510 tests/device
Minicon A25 8 tests/device
Miniplus4 tests/device
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:
ModelSample Volume
Minicon - B155 ml
Minicon - CS152.5 ml
Minicon - A250.75 ml
Miniplus 10 ml
How can I dispose of a used Minicon device?You can dispose of a Minicon by autoclaving it or incinerating it.
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
