Stericup® and Steritop® Filter Units

Sterilize cell culture media with vacuum-driven Stericup® and Steritop® filters.

Sterile-filter and store 150 mL up to 1000 mL of cell culture media using trusted Stericup® filter units, which include a bottle-top filter and a receiving flask, and Steritop® bottle-top filters.    

Reasons to choose Stericup® vacuum filters:

  • Faster flow rate and less clogging than many other bottle-top filters
  • Low protein binding
  • Stable design to minimize risk of tipping over
  • Easy to grip flask
  • Compact and stackable, even in tight cell culture hoods
  • Wide range of membranes and volume capacity

Our most popular sterile filtration membrane, Millipore Express® PLUS polyethersulfone (PES), now delivers even faster filtration rates while reducing overall protein and reagent loss.
 

 Reduce Your Culture Variability by Choosing Stericup® Vacuum Driven Sterile Filters

Fastest media throughput for less clogging:


Comparison of media flow rate between multiple vacuum-driven filters. 500 mL of DMEM with 10% FBS was filtered through various vacuum-driven cup devices and timed.

Lowest protein binding for less protein loss:


Comparison of protein binding between multiple vacuum-driven filters. Discs cut from various filters were offered a 1 mg/mL solution of 125I labeled lgG. The chart shows protein binding after incubation (normalized to membrane surface area).
