Space-Saving Filtration Accessories Available for Bench-Top Use

Millipore has introduced new group of compact filtration accessories — the Titer Plate Shaker, Millivac Maxi and Mini Vacuum Pumps, Chibitan II Personal Centrifuge and Milli-Stir Stirring Plate. These four laboratory tools not only save valuable bench space with small footprints but also complement a complete range of filtration solutions.

Compatible with Millipore’s MultiScreen filter plates, the Titer Plate Shaker regulates shaking speeds from 40 to 1100 rpm. A 1/8 inch circular orbit minimizes cross-talk between wells for reliable and accurate assay results.

Easy-to-use and maintain, the Millivac Maxi and Mini vacuum pumps provide a consistent source of vacuum to filter large volumes and viscous solutions, as well as water and aqueous solutions. Compared to conventional models, the Millivac pumps are designed to eliminate vibrations and operate noise-free. 

Lightweight, the Chibitan II Personal Centrifuge can process up to six centrifugal tubes at once. The centrifuge is optimized for use with Millipore’s Ultrafree-MC centrifugal filter and Microcon device.

Ideal for use on a benchtop or in a laminar flow hood, the Milli-Stir Stirring Plate mixes up to 800 mL of liquid at speeds from 15 to 1500 rpm. The Milli-Stir automatically reverses direction every 30 seconds to ensure better mixing. In addition, its advanced magnetic coil technology offers durability by excluding any moving parts used in traditional stirring plates.
