GE’s Polydisc GW (Ground Water) is an in-line filter specifically designed for preparation of ground water samples for dissolved heavy metal analysis.
• Hydrophilic, durable nylon membrane is compatible with aqueous samples
• 100% quartz fiber prefilter with low heavy metal content allows filtration of larger volumes of even heavily particle-laden samples
• Certified low background metal values for heavy metal testing
• Large 20.4 cm2 filtration area
• Tubing nozzle compatible with 6–14 mm i.d. hose
Whatman brand filter options from GE Healthcare’s Life Sciences business offer a wide range of high-throughput, in-line choices for a variety of applications.
Polydisc GW for ground water sampling
Polydisc GW’s large filter surface, durable nylon Whatman membrane, and quartz fiber prefilter result in high dirt-loading capacity. The filter was designed in line with regulatory requirements for groundwater testing found in US EPA Method 3005A.
Certified for heavy metal analysis
Heavy metal testing in ground water often requires an aqueous filter to reduce a sample’s turbidity, but results can be skewed if the filter itself contains heavy metals. GE certifies each Polydisc GW batch for low background values for the determination of trace elements.
