Filta-Max xpress™—A breakthrough in filter processing
A new foam filter and a new, fully automated elution station—designed specifically for efficient and rapid elution of Cryptosporidium and Giardia
Run a sample in less than two minutes
The IDEXX Filta-Max xpress™ system is a rapid, efficient technology for the capture and recovery of Cryptosporidium spp and Giardia spp.
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 though 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.
How to use Filta-Max xpress
Place the Filta-Max xpress filter module in the filter housing and connect it to the required source (IDEXX supplies quick-connect fittings to enable easy field or grab sample handling).
After sampling, the filter housing can be attached directly to the IDEXX Filta-Max xpress Pressure Elution Station. (Other sampling options are available.)
Close the pressure elution station’s door and press F1 on the control panel to start the elution cycle, which takes less than two minutes.
