Is filtration an important part of a laboratory workflow?

30 Jan 2019

If you work in the field of environmental management, industrial quality control or life science, it is imperative that you have the support of a knowledgeable representative who can supply your laboratory with the correct products to accomplish your filtration goals.

With samples requiring filtration, the traditional procedure sees the liquid poured onto a filter paper in a funnel, with the particulate/solid suspended being retained, and liquid slowly collecting in a receiver.

Laboratory filtration with the aid of a vacuum pressure gradient, is a fast and efficient way to filter and obtain your sample. As vacuum is used to aid filtration, the resulting particulate is dryer as opposed to using a more passive, gravity fed system. The filtrate can be collected into a flask via the use of a vacuum manifold.

Rowe Scientific have a range of products to cater for varying vacuum filtration scenarios. We offer 3 or 6 place manifolds, filter holders and receivers, funnels, flasks, tubing, vacuum pumps, connectors and more. We have created 2 kits which enable an easy initial set up for most laboratory applications.

We currently have a great price deal on vacuum filtration kits. Click here to download the PDF brochure.

Client Spotlight – The Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation

29 Aug 2018

The Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation is a cancer research, education and treatment centre dedicated in the search for cancer cures. It currently is Australia’s only public hospital which is solely dedicated to caring and treating people affected by cancer.

The Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation currently employs over 2,500 staff, including more than 580 laboratory and clinical researchers, all focused on providing treatments, care and potential cures for cancer.

Rowe Scientific recently held a morning tea showcasing various life science products of interest to the Foundation such as pipettors, nucleic acid extraction kits, specialised gloves, freezer storage, and small laboratory equipment to name a few.

We thank the scientists, technicians, and laboratory managers who stopped by to discuss their various needs and requirements.

Rowe Scientific will continue to supply and support The Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation with their laboratory needs in order to continue their search for a cure.

Make the change, make the GRADE!

16 Aug 2018

If you’re looking for a cost effective and high quality stomacher bag, then the UK made GRADE range may be the smart choice for your laboratory. GRADE have been manufacturing laboratory bags for over 40 years.

The full range of homogeniser/blender and separator bags come in a range of sizes from 80mL to 3500mL and available in straight or curved bottom, with or without filters. Also available are GRADE disposable straws to pipette samples after homogenisation.

GRADE bags are suitable for all types of blender machines and are made to exacting standards. Leading laboratories world-wide use GRADE bags due to their durable composition and the extremely low likelihood of bags bursting when in use.  GRADE bags are manufactured under an ISO 9001 approved quality control system, and have a negligible failure rate.

Grade have made a robust bag by using the correct blend of polymers (high quality, food grade LDPE) for superior strength and elasticity. They are tested up to eight times the normal usage to ensure each individually numbered and traceable batch is up to standard.

The easy-to-open double size (4mm) seal make any faults totally visible, giving you the added security of no leakage. GRADE bags are Gamma irradiated for sample integrity and have a minimum shelf life of five years.

Test them for yourself, ask us for samples. Standard homogeniser/blender bags are available in three sizes 80, 400 and 3500mL. Separator bags come in two types; 400mL with curved or straight bottoms. Call your local Rowe Scientific representative and make the GRADE.
