The SureStrain™ Premium Cell Strainer system is a fast and easy-to-use solution for detaching, isolating and straining cells from clusters and tissues. A polypropylene frame supports a nylon mesh that is available in three color-coded porosities, 40µm (blue), 70µm (white) and 100µm (yellow). A tiered filtration process is made possible by the SureStrain's unique interlocking stackable design.
SureStrain's molded grip and unique geometry ensure aseptic handling and eliminate the contamination risks associated with fingers contacting the filtered suspension, mesh and/or interior surfaces. The sterile strainer can be easily removed from the special blister packaging without touching its interior surface or mesh.
The advanced frame/housing design also contributes to enhanced performance and reduced processing time, by eliminating the "air-lock" effect. Improved aeration allows air to escape while filtrate is entering the tube, preventing messy spillovers. Simply open the sterile package, attach the strainer to the top of a 50 ml tube and add your cell suspension/sample. Or, attach the provided reducing adapter for use in 15 ml tubes. Sure Strain produces an optimized filtrate for maximum flow in separate columns and cytometers.
