Filta-Max xpress is a filter-processing system for the capture and recovery of Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
Principle: Filta-Max xpress is a rapid, efficient technology for the capture and recovery of Cryptosporidium and Giardia. The filter module has been optimized to capture target organisms from a wide range of raw water matrices. Using air pressure to force a specifically developed elution buffer through the filter, the elution procedure has been developed to rapidly and simply elute target organisms at the push of a button. The action of the buffer, coupled with the unique architecture of the foam filter, results in a highly effective process. A sample can be run in less than two minutes.
