Syringe Filters

Eliminate particles and microorganisms from your sample — reliably

Prevent the accumulation of fine particles that can block your chromatography column. Thermo Scientific Titan3 and Target2 Syringe Filters remove interfering materials, fine particles, and microorganisms, providing you with cleaner sample extracts. These high-quality robust sample filtration solutions are available in a variety of syringe filter sizes, membranes, and housings for a wide range of samples and applications.

What is the difference between Titan3 and Target2 syringe filters?

Both Titan3 and Target2 provide:

  • High-quality filtration solutions
  • Low extractable membranes and housing
  • HPLC performance tested
  • Plain polypropylene housing
  • 30mm products pressure rated to 100 psi
  • Enhanced Luer Lock inlet which provides secure attachment to syringes
  • Range of filter sizes from 4mm to 30mm
  • Low hold-up volume allows for the treatment of small sample volumes with minimal sample loss

Titan3 is the premium brand that provides:

  • Even higher levels of confidence from stronger housing that prevents leakage and bursting
  • 30mm products pressure rated to 120 psi
  • Most 30mm devices are provided with a 1mm boro silicate glass pre-filter (delivering increased filtrate volumes)
  • Color coding for easy identification and selection of the correct membrane and pore size

How to select your syringe filter

Get this syringe filter technical guide to determine:

  1. Membrane compatibility with your sample type and technique
  2. Compatibility of membrane with solvent
  3. Filter size, which is dependent on sample volume
  4. Porosity, which depends on the amount of particles to be removed from the sample
