PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y.--(Business Wire)--
Pall Corporation (NYSE:PLL) has introduced a 13 mm Acrodisc® MS syringe filter
certified for low extractables in high performance liquid chromatography/mass
spectrometry (LCMS) applications. The new 13 mm size, which is designed
specifically for small sample analysis using LCMS, complements Pall`s current
Acrodisc MS syringe filter offering of a 25 mm filter. The 13 mm Acrodisc MS
syringe filter improves the accuracy of testing, enhances LCMS performance, and
extends the longevity of testing instrumentation.

The low extractable levels of the new 13 mm Acrodisc MS syringe filter minimize
interference with the ionization process and reduce the need for retesting. This
lowers costs while minimizing downtime due to unexpected contamination. To
ensure high performance, product tubes are packaged individually so that filters
not in use remain sealed and protected from external contamination. 

Constructed with Pall`s new water wettable polytetrafluoroethylene (WWPTFE)
membrane in a unique high density polyethylene housing, the Acrodisc MS syringe
filter can be used with both organic and aqueous solvents. It offers excellent
chemical resistance and good particulate retention with minimal protein
adsorption. This protects instrument columns from particulate build-up and
reduces the frequency and cost of replacement. It also enables more consistent
LCMS testing performance. 

"Pall`s 13 mm Acrodisc MS syringe filter is the newest innovation in our
comprehensive line of syringe filters and is suitable for samples as small as 25
µL," said Larry O`Connell, senior vice president, Pall Laboratory Products. "Our
new size will continue to improve the accuracy, cost, and reliability of high
performance LCMS testing. The applications for this advancement are extensive
and growing rapidly as testing technology advances."
