High-flow concentration and instant sample recovery of viruses, bacteria, and parasites from 5 to 100+ liters in a convenient kit. 

The EasyEluteTM LVC Kit concentrates microorganisms and particles using robust filtration with a high-flow ultrafilter followed by instant sample recovery using our patented Wet Foam Elution™ to recover microorganisms into a small final volume (~70 mL). This one-pass method improves your limit of detection exponentially - especially important for detection of trace pathogens.

The LVC kit contains:

  • A 30 kD ultrafilter (2.5 m2 surface area)
  • Tubing and fittings
  • EasyElute Buffer canister (choose either PBS or Tris)

Application fields

The CP Select is ideal for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Covid-19 Environmental Monitoring.
  • Environmental Monitoring.
  • Animal Health and Aquaculture.
  • Pharma.
  • Biosurveillance.
  • Drinking Water and Wastewater.
  • Food Safety.

Using your own vacuum pump, the fluid sample is pulled through the filter in a dead-end configuration. The particles are trapped as the fluid is carried away to waste. To recover the captured particles from the filter, manually press the EasyElute buffer canister into a fitting on the filter. The buffer will dispense with through the filter - expanding 6x into a viscous foam that lifts the trapped particles. Within seconds, the concentrated microorganisms are eluted from the filter ready for downstream culture, molecular, or sequencing analysis methods.

A second stage concentration can be easily performed with the Concentrating Pipette to reduce the sample to microliter volumes in minutes.
