    Does it matter if i use a .45 sterile filter as opposed to a .22mm sterile filter?

    .22 is preferred. I don't think .45 takes out enough impurities. Better be safe when dealing with your body and go with the .22um man.

    .22 micron = sterility.

    Have you got the link for this?

    Pit your mixed gear in the top pump up the vac and it filters through to the flask, pretty simple

    The filter come in different "um" and if the filters are the wrong "um" then you can buy those on amazon. Ive seen people on here say they use 45um for everything and ive also seen people say they only use 22um because 45 is not sterile.

    No its not..
    The user manual says to hold down the "SHIFT" and "F2" key at the same time and 147 options will come across the LED for testosterone settings. Please read the fine print. LOL

    It's filtered in a flask you sterilize. It's perfectly fine.

    I will be ordering one. Just talk to the seller ask him to send you 25 micron paper cause some of the papers he sells are like 6 and 8 micron.

    When using a stericup one piece setup, how does one transfer the filtered product out of it while keeping it sterile? I would assume you just have to pop the top and draw it into a large syringe but is this limited air exposure an issue?

    No it's not an issue. As long as the air is circulating you are ok.

    Think what it, what is the first thing you do with a new vial?, you push air in it to create positive pressure. So if air isn't acceptable as sterile then why do we all do that?

    Find out what material the filter is made of.

    I have some notes but I do not have links to the original posts or the individuals who created the posts.
    Nylon is not compatible with Benzyl alcohol - even at 1% BA. Do not use it.

    PVDF is superior choice for filtering, its chemical compatibility is excellent.

    PTFE (teflon) filters are the absolute best, but they run a premium. PVDF is a fine choice.

    PES is not compatible with BB

    Nylon is not compatible with BA

    PES and Nylon are not compatible with Guaiacol, (and most likely not EO).

    I posted those

    PVDF is the absolute best because of the characteristics of the pores in the filtration elements. It will allow more to flow through than the PTFE filter. PTFE has the advantage of being compatible with more materials, but nothing that is used in this process is outside the scope of PVDF compatibilities.

    I referenced all the materials on the whatman website (there's a nice material compatibility table on it somewhere).


    As far as pore size... .22um is what you want. Sure you can get away with .45um but it will not guarantee sterility. If you think .45um is fine, then sure, use it, but dont be bitching if you get some dirty gear and get an infection.

    Some things can pass through the .22um filter though... certain rare prions, but these are not a concern for us.
