InRedox Anodic Aluminum Oxide Anisotropic membrane filters, 10nm pore, 13mm dia, pk20

Anisotropic Anodic Aluminum Oxide (AAO) contain two layers with different pore structure integrated into a monolithic membrane:

Underlying Support Layer – contains larger pores that provide mechanical strength and high permeance.

Active Layer – an upper thin layer of highly uniform pores

Anisotropic pore structure supports size-based separation in 2 to 10 nm range, and makes anisotropic membranes suitable for nanofiltration and ultrafiltration applications.  Anisotropic AAO membrane filters are currently available with pore diameters of 2-4nm, 5nm and 10nm.

These membrane filters are less brittle than similar ceramic membrane filter products ensuring easier handling, usage and less loss of product or samples during preparation.

Membrane Features

•          Precise and reproducible pore geometries

•          Pore size from 2 nm to 200 nm

•          Narrow pore size distribution, sharp molecular weight cutoff

•          Anisotropic (bi-layer) pore structure

•          Smooth flat surface, low fouling, straight pores

•          Optically transparent when wet, low autofluorescence

•          Surface terminated with -OH-groups for binding protocols

•          Naturally hydrophilic, no extractables or leachables

•          Biocompatible, popular substrate for cell culturing

•          Excellent bath-to-batch consistency

Monolithic bi-layer pore structure:

Active layer (1-5% of thickness) with pore diameter 2-10 nm for size separation

Support layer (95%-99% of thickness) with pore diameter 150-200 nm to provide mechanical support with high flow

Applications: nano-, ultra & microfiltration, bioseparation, cell culturing, epiflourescence, electron microscopy, bioanalysis
