Foxx Life Sciences has become a leading expert in innovative solutions to the most common problems in the laboratory. Their Autofil® Filtration Systems are great examples of the innovation and research that drives their business forward.
The Autofil® system is designed for sterilization or clarification of aqueous laboratory fluids. All Autofil® filters are made in North America using USP Class VI materials. Autofil® and Autofil® SS are gamma-sterilized more thoroughly than competitors (SAL 10-6), guaranteeing full sterility.
There are three lines of the Autofil® Filtration Systems: Centrifuge Filtration, SS Bottle-Top Filtration, and PP Bottle-Top Filtration. These three systems offer the widest variety of bottle-top filters: 0.1μm, 0.2μm, and 0.45μm in 15mL, 50mL, 250mL, 500mL, and 1000mL. These bottle-top filters can work as a stand-alone unit or with a pedestal base or ring-stand cradle.
An industry first, Foxx Life Sciences provides an optional, patented, stable pedestal base or a low-cost ring-stand cradle with a stationary vacuum hose connection. That connection makes setup and use quick and efficient, and prevents spills and tissue culture hood contamination. These holders allow for stable, hands-free operation of the filter unit.
Autofil® Centrifuge Filtration
The Autofil® Centrifuge Funnel is available as either a complete assembly or as a funnel only Centrifuge Funnel vacuum filter. Centrifuge filtration is a great alternative to syringe filtration, using the vacuum to do the work. Both 15mL and 50mL sizes of this patented next generation product come with three different asymmetric PES membrane pore sizes (0.1μm, 0.2μm, or 0.45μm). The Foxx PES membrane has low protein binding and is surfactant-free.
Autofil® SS Bottle-Top Filtration
Autofil® SS is available as either a complete system or as a funnel-only bottle-top vacuum filter. The 250mL, 500mL, and 1000mL sizes of this product come with 0.2μm Super High Flow PES; the 1000mL version is also available with 0.45μm Super High Flow PES. Our membrane is low protein binding and surfactant-free. The filters are Gamma sterilized in the USA. Autofil SS is the fastest bottle-top filter in the world, with the highest throughput.
Autofil® PP Bottle-Top Filtration
Autofil® PP bottle-top filters for solvent filtration are a revolutionary new way to purify solvents, resulting in sterilized or purified extracts for analytical applications. Foxx has developed the world’s first single piece polypropylene funnel. This funnel is designed to withstand the harsh solvents that would normally degrade traditional bottle-top filter assemblies. It also allows for easy filtration of organic solvents. All active components are FDA-grade, making Autofil® PP perfect for the extraction of compounds used in the food and drug industry.
Autofil® PP is the world’s only GL45-threaded one-piece polypropylene funnel. Foxx Autofil® PP is designed to conveniently fit on top of most laboratory bottles with a GL45 thread. Autofil® PP is available in:
- three different types of membrane: PES, Nylon, and PTFE.
- two different pore sizes: 0.2μm or 0.45μm.
- two volumes: 500mL and 1000mL.
