Environmental science has developed in recent years with protocols in the field of microbiology as well as chemistry and soil sciences. These present new challenges in sample preparation and analysis. The versatility of the full page filter bags (Stomacher bags) have seen it used in preparing samples from a variety of sources including soil, sewage and leaf litter.
The testing protocols for water borne parasites involving filtration and the subsequent processing of the <250micron filter in the full page filter bags to extract and concentrate the organisms, demonstrates the high volume processing capacity of the larger bags. Chemical analysis of environmental samples from a variety of sources as well as residues from plant and animal tissue require safe and efficient sample processing.
Global Scientific's filter bags have been used in evaluating the impact of herbicides and pesticides on the environment. Having the ability to extract and retain all the sample and buffer in a disposable bag makes it suitable for a variety of applications where the washing solution is the target of the analysis.
