Cytiva's (formerly GE Healthcare Life Sciences) Whatman Puradisc line is a comprehensive syringe filter portfolio used in a variety of applications.

Glass microfiber is hydrophilic and has excellent compatibility with organic solvents and strong acids (except hydrofluoric acid) and bases. However, it is not a micropore membrane and so has a slightly less exact retention efficiency than polymeric membranes. GMF can also contribute extractables that interfere with ionic and metals analysis.
