Hi Janet,

You may want to try BD Falcon's Cell Strainers, which are available in 40, 70 or 100 micron pore sizes.  At a previous job we used these to filter samples prior to sorting.	They are sold in cases of 50 and are individually wrapped and sterile.
Catalog info for the 40 micron filter is BD #352340 or VWR #21008-949.

Best Regards,

Dear Flowers:

Unfortunately, I am about to run out of the cup-type 30 um Filcons that I use to filter my samples before I run them on my MoFlo.	I have just tried to reorder them from Dako but they are telling me that they are discontinued as a result of the sale of the cytometry division to Beckman Coulter.	I have called BC and they don't seem to know what I am talking about.

Does anyone know anywhere else I can buy these or similar filters?

Thanks so much
