The purity of the filtration media is particularly important in everyday laboratory work. Contamination may occur both in solids and in liquid and gaseous media, and they have to be detected and analyzed at short notice. Freedom from particles in the sphere of nano- and microstructures is a fundamental requirement. In addition to the filtration process, individual standards regulate use of the appropriate membrane with the specific coating and pore size in the respective analytical areas.
i3 Membrane offers highly reliable, specially coated track-etched membranes made of different polymer compounds for all applications in the field of particle analysis. Ultra-thin metal layers of gold, titanium and other precious metals on high-quality polymer membranes enable the electrical conductivity of the membrane surfaces. They provide optimum reflection in FTIR, Raman and form a suitable conductive substrate for imaging in EDX/WDX.
The standardized membranes are ideally suited for use in environmental analysis. The here focus is on asbestos analysis (air and material samples) as well as the analysis of water and soil samples of every kind.
In addition, they are used in microplastics analysis for the F&B sector and technical cleanliness, as well as in particle analysis of liquid pharmaceuticals and auxiliary chemicals.
The particularly smooth gold surface of the track-etched membranes is also valued in the filtration of microplastics analysis. Particles from the environment and from food can be detected and analyzed quickly and easily with the help of thetrack-etched membranes. The particularly pure aluminum oxide membranes are used for sample preparation (fast filtration with efficient separation and the highest purity, as in HPLC and the like). Low adsorption, high chemical inertness and the exclusion of extractables make them so indispensable.
Particle analyses that go beyond standard applications can be implemented using membranes developed just for you.
