Biologically inert mixtures of cellulose acetate and cellulose nitrate result in membranes with a smoother and more uniform surface than pure nitrocellulose filters. MCE membranes are easy to handle with less cracking and fracturing than traditional cellulose nitrate membranes. I.W. Tremont offers sterile MCE membranes which are certified for the microbiological analysis of potable, waste, process and natural waters in accordance with the Membrane Filter Technique which is referenced in the Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater; 20th edition and the U.S. EPA's Microbiological Methods for Monitoring the Environment, 600/8-78-017. Sterile MCE membranes are individually sealed in easy to open pouches and the non-sterile version is stacked in thermoformed trays designed for easy removal using forceps.
