Use of a disposable filtration capsule with a non-occluded membrane filter element in the place of a standard spiral wound cartridge allows for the more rapid and quantitative filtration, recovery, and quantitation of microorganisms in liquid, particularly surface waters, well water, tap water, and the like. The capsule allows a severe reduction in the water sample size tested, substantially minimizes risks of cross-contamination, and provides a leak-proof vessel for shipment. Risk of infection of laboratory personnel and time of analysis are both reduce...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A disposable filtration capsule suitable for use in the quantitation of targeted microorganisms in a microorganism-containing fluid sample, said disposable filtration capsule comprising:a) a polymeric housing having an inner surface, a sealable sample inlet and a sealable outlet;b) a filter element having an upstream side and a downstream side, the filter element comprising a pleated membrane having a filter volume, an upstream side and a downstream side, the membrane also having a pore size such that a smallest targeted micro...
