pluriStrainer - Common Sizes (40, 70, 100 µm)
The pluriStrainer® is a sieving device (or cell strainer) for a wide range of laboratory applications where the filtration and the purification of liquids is required. Its unique design features improved ventilation to avoid clogging for a smart sample preparation. pluriStrainer® are stackable to allow direct filtration with different mesh sizes and alsocan be inverted to recover the sieved material. For large sample volumes it can be combined with a funnel. It fits all major brand 50 mL centrifuge (conical) tubes. The combination of the pluriStrainer® and the Connector Ring allow using low pressure which supports the filtration. Furthermore it is possible to block the flow through the sieve and hold back the liquid on top of the mesh. The liquid on top of the mesh can be used for sample preparation and incubation such as tissue dissociation or the treatment of cells with cell lysis reagents (e.g. Buffer RLT, TRIzol®).
Attach pluriStrainer® to a sterile 50 mL centrifuge tube. Then, add sample material onto the strainer and filter sample
To obtain the larger fraction, take off the pluriStrainer®, turn it upside down onto another 50 mL tube and flush back the sample from the pluriStrainer®.
Increase sample load
With Funnel You can add up to 24 mL sample material on top.
Stacking of pluriStrainer® with different mesh sizes allows for straining various cell sizes at the same time.
Allows to control the rate of flow by opening or closing the Luer-Lock, e.g. for physical dissociation of primary tissue (brain, spleen etc.).
If you add a syringe to the Connector Ring, it is possible to force low pressure to support the straining of rough sample material while pulling the piston.
