EZ-Product Family for Bioburden Testing

The EZ family has been designed to optimize and streamline your bioburden workflow. Ideal for microbiological water, beverage, and medical device testing using the membrane filtration method. The family includes:

EZ-Fit® Filtration Units

The EZ-Fit® Filtration Unit is a disposable filtration device for microbiological testing of liquid samples, including water, in-process samples, and final products.

EZ-Fit® Filtration Units offer:

  • Drain support and optimized funnel-to-base assembly ensure optimal microbial recovery—including the new pink base for viscous or hard-to-filter samples.
  • Unique funnel design prevents any leaks and ensures filtration of the entire sample volume
  • Protective rim reduces contamination risk
  • 100 mL and 250 mL funnels accommodate a range of sample volumes
  • Compliance with water testing regulations, and conformance with international standards including EP, USP and ISO.

The blue EZ-Fit® Filtration Units come with pad and plugs.

EZ-Fit® Manifold

The membrane filtration method is commonly used for in-process microbial testing. The EZ-Fit® Manifold is a filtration manifold for universal laboratory filtrations and is designed for ease of maintenance, reducing contamination risk, and workflow optimization. All internal areas of the manifold are accessible for efficient cleaning, and it is autoclavable for the prevention of biofilm formation. An integrated check valve prevents liquid backflow and the 2-way valve prevents the user from accidentally touching the filtration head during use.

The EZ-Fit® Manifold has a low height for use in laminar flow hoods. Tubing can be connected to either side of the manifold and each component can be easily removed without additional tools.
