Filta-Max®—World Leader for the Capture and Recovery of Cryptosporidium and Giardia

The unique capture and recovery technology of the Filta-Max system has made it the number one Cryptosporidium and Giardia filter in the world.

Filta-Max consistantly recovers greater than 70% of target organisms.

US EPA Method 1623 and UK DWI approved.

1000 liters of finished water or 50 liters of raw water can be sampled with one filter, providing high sensitivity.

Filta-Max Benefits

Superior Technology
  • The Filta-Max system has been specifically designed to optimize both the capture and recovery of the waterborne pathogens, Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
  • The filter is made of open-cell foam discs that have been compressed to give a nominal porosity for the capture of Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
  • After sampling, the foam is decompressed, enabling the captured organisms to be recovered by a simple washing and concentration procedure.
Superior Performance
  • Consistently recovers greater than 70% of target organisms.
  • High volumes of both finished water (1000 liters) and raw water (50 liters) can be filtered to provide greater sensitivity.
  • Samples can be concentrated to 25mL without centrifugation.
  • The filter operates at sampling flow rates of up to 4 liters per minute.
  • US EPA Method 1623 and UK DWI approved.
  • More Cryptosporidium and Giardia tests are done worldwide using the Filta-Max system than all other filtration technologies combined.

How to Use Filta-Max

Step 1
Connect the housing to the required water source for sampling.

Step 2
Remove the filter module from the housing.

Step 3
Place the module in a wash station and wash with elution buffer.

Step 4
Concentrate the wash buffer using a 3-µm membrane.

Step 5
Repeat steps 3 and 4 to give a final volume of 25 ml.
