General description

This item is a direct replacement for SCHVU02RE
Work with ease and filter with confidence with Stericup® and Steritop® Filtration Systems.

Stericup® and Steritop® vacuum sterile filtration devices use reliable, high-performance membranes for optimum sterile filtration of laboratory reagents, buffers, and media. These devices combine superior flow rates and throughput with low non-specific binding and a stable, no-tip design.

This Stericup® 0.45 μm pore size polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) membrane filter unit combines a 250 mL bottle-top with a 250 mL receiver flask and cap for processing and storage.


For Research Use Only
Stericup® and Steritop® systems are designed to reduce foaming and protein denaturation while maximizing flow and can be used for sterile vacuum filtration of aqueous solutions such as tissue culture media and biological fluids.

  • Tissue culture media +/- additives
  • Buffers
  • Biological solutions

Features and Benefits

  • The Quick Release filter funnel disconnects from the receiver bottle with just a quarter turn—reducing the likelihood of spillage and making it easier to manipulate on the bench or under the hood.
  • Bold product identification on the Steritop® filter funnel plainly displays membrane characteristics, including composition and pore size, for rapid, application-appropriate product selection.
  • Click seal cap is flanged and modified to enable a firm grip in wet or dry conditions—and a tactile stop confirms secure closure. Worry less about the possibility of spilling or contamination of sterilized contents.
  • Frosted, ample writing surface on the receiver bottle and lighter cap color facilitate clear labelling to improve legibility and reduce unreadable smears.
  • Click seal cap rests on the side to avoid risk of contamination.
  • Receiver bottles are stackable to save storage space.
