SQ-EASY Pre-Filters

Off-line Sample Preparation with Advanced Pre-Filtration Solutions

Enhancing Off-line Sample Preparation for Accurate Test Results

Achieving accurate test results relies on the integrity of the sample. At Porex Corporation, we recognize the critical role of sample preparation in ensuring reliable outcomes. Our clinical science products are meticulously engineered to serve as multi-functional, all-in-one sample preparation devices. By leveraging our expertise in unique manufacturing processes and utilizing proprietary and patented technologies, we deliver high-performance solutions that prioritize sterility, accuracy, and reproducibility across a range of in vitro diagnostic (IVD), molecular, and diagnostic applications.

With SQ-EASY® Pre-Filters, we present a disposable and efficient filtration system designed to optimize offline sample preparation. These self-contained filtration systems are specifically developed for applications involving stool, serum, diluted whole blood, urine, and throat swab assays. We offer individual components that can be purchased separately, allowing for customization in tube size and filtration efficiencies. Each component is conveniently packaged in quantities of 100 or 1,000 units per package, offering flexibility and scalability to meet your specific needs.
