SpectraPor® Tube-A-Lyzer® Dialysis Device

Ready-to-use dialysis devices are all made with our proprietary Biotech Grade CE dialysis tubing, preassembled with volume specific lengths of membrane tubing and designed to maximize convenience, ease-of-use and sample recovery.

SpectraPor® Tube-A-Lyzer® Dynamic Dialysis Device

Tube-A-Lyzer® is a ready-to-use device that combines single-use convenience with the efficiency of dynamic dialysis to significantly improve dialysis efficiency and can reduce time from days to hours. The unique two chamber-device features a membrane defined sample chamber with a port for easy sample loading and recovery; surrounded by a flow-through buffer chamber for continuous and gentle dialysis.  Compared to traditional-static dialysis, the continuous buffer flow increases the mass transfer rate across the semi-permeable membrane to achieve a higher exchange rate and purity in less time.

The Tube-A-Lyzer® easily mounts on a standard lab stand with a tube clamp and connects to a separate buffer source that is continuously pumped in either single-pass or recirculation mode. Two units can be coupled for operating in parallel.  (Stand, pump, pump tubing and bracket sold separately) 

Available in 2 sample volume sizes (8-10 ml and 25-30 ml) and made with with high purity Biotech Grade Cellulose Ester (CE) membrane in 6 MWCOs ranging from 0.1-100 kD (refer to the Chemical Compatibility table).

Features

  • 2 sample volume sizes (8-10 ml & 25-30 ml)
  • Easy access port for sample loading, recovery & testing
  • Biotech CE membrane in 6 concise MWCO’s (0.1 – 100 kD)
  • Flow through buffer chamber for dynamic dialysis
  • Coupling for parallel operation or split-flow
UNIQUE DESIGN

Self-contained cylindrical dynamic dialysis device with concentric sample and buffer chamber

EASY TO USE

Easy loading and recovery with Luer-Lok Syringe. Continuous buffer flow eliminates buffer changes.

FASTER

Increases the rate of dialysis and can reduce overall dialysis time from 1-2 days to  6-12 hours

BROAD MWCO RANGE

6 MWCOs from 0.1 - 100 kD for all dialysis applications from small peptides to large nanoparticles

HIGH PURITY

Achieve 98% sample purity with Biotech CE membrane, no heavy metal and sulfides.

FEATURED APPLICATION

Purification of fragile proteins
