Cellulose Acetate (CA) membranes are a mixture of cellulose triacetate and diacetate creating a strong membrane in both lateral and longitudinal directions.  Compared to MCE membrane, CA exhibits improved solvent resistance to low molecular weight alcohols, improved heat resistance up to 180˚C, and may be repeatedly autoclaved or steam-sterilized without loss of integrity.

These membranes have a very low static charge which can minimize particle contamination of the membrane.  This characteristic makes CA membrane ideally suited for OEM applications.  Recovery of fastidious gram+ organisms may be enhanced by culturing on CA membrane. 

CA membranes are low protein binding and have low aqueous extractables(0.1%wt). Typical applications include filtration of enzyme solutions to minimize protein loss, diagnostic cytology, receptor binding studies, and filtration of solutions containing alcohol.


Key Features

  • Composition: Mixture of cellulose triacetate and diacetate
  • Characteristics: Low static charge and high strength
  • Autoclavable: Withstands autoclaving temperatures up to 130℃without adversely affecting bubble point, flow rate or microbiological recovery
  • Clean: Lowest aqueous extractables (0.1 wt%)of all Advantec membranes
  • Relative to MCE (Mixed Cellulose Esters, Nitrocellulose):

    • Improved solvent resistance to low molecular 
    • Better heat resistance
    • Lower protein binding
  • Pore size: 0.2, 0.45, 0.8 and 3µm
  • Diameter: 13 mm, 25 mm,  37mm, 47mm, 90 mm, 142 mm, and 293 mm.
  • Packaged as nonsterile bulk packs or sterile individually wrapped


Typical Applications

  • Filtration of enzyme solutions to minimize protein loss
  • Enhanced recovery of fastidious gram positive organisms 
  • Diagnostic cytology
  • Receptor binding studies
  • Filtration of solutions containing alcohol 

Note: Should not be prewet prior to loading into a holder and autoclaving
