The patented microliter filter crucible facilitates fast and reliable routine analyses, even when working with complex samples – thanks to the intelligent combination of filter and sample holder for TGA.
The TGA crucible from GKD increases the efficiency of the analytical work performed by research institutes, universities, independent analysis laboratories, and federal authorities. The results attained are also more meaningful.
The innovative new TGA filter crucible is currently unrivaled in the market. It is the result of the joint research and development work of the German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM), the German Federal Environmental Agency (UBA), and GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG. The innovative architecture of the crucible and its features are precisely matched to the work steps employed in liquid analysis.
Analysis of microplastics in liquids is often performed using processes that are both time-consuming and require costly sample preparation.
TED GC/MS has already made analytical processes significantly faster. However, this process becomes even more efficient with use of the innovative microfilter crucible:
The optimized dutch weave (ODW) from GKD is used as the filter medium. This stainless steel mesh is a further refinement of the plain dutch weave (PDW) used for ultrafine filtration.
The innovative microfilter crucible is 100% tested and ready for immediate use. Its key specifications are listed below:
The filter crucible for ultrafine filtration and analysis of liquids was developed within the scope of the research project entitled “Representative investigation strategies for an integrative system understanding of specific release of plastics into the environment” (RUSEKU) – which was sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). During this project, the benefits of the microfilter crucible were determined over a period of one year using microplastics analytics. Both the desired improvement in analytical accuracy and the significant time saving for lab work were tested and confirmed.
