Less Time at the Centrifuge, More Time for Research
The µPULSE® - TFF System is a fully automated, walk away system that uses tangential flow filtration (TFF) for sample concentration and diafiltration (buffer exchange, desalting).
Set your desired parameters and let the system do 95% of the process automatically until it is time to collect your sample; Remotely monitor via a web-based application.
Permeate flow rate up to 2.5x faster than centrifuges with dead-end filters.
Whether you are trying to scale up or down, µPULSE allows you to control all the parameters of an industrial TFF, at the research scale.
Wide Range of Operating Volumes
Concentrate from 100mL to 1mL with up to 250 mL of buffer exchange.
Lowest Hold-up Volume in the Industry
Our patent-pending pump design offers just 0.65 mL of hold-up volume. Up to 100% hold-up recovery with automated recovery options.
All components in the fluid path are disposable consumables.
The µPULSE consumable chips can be cleaned in place for re-use up to 300 mL of permeate (sample dependent).
Stop Wasting Time Checking on Samples
Simply enter your starting and final volume with optional diafiltration - The μPULSE® - TFF System takes care of the rest.

Easy Sample Concentration and Diafiltration
(Buffer Exchange, Desalting)
“The µPULSE TFF system is a convenient and efficient method for sample concentration during our exosome isolation workflow in conjunction with qEV columns. The software is intuitive, and the instrument provides a rapid method for concentrating lab-scale volumes while maintaining high yields."
Compatible with the Variety of Samples
- Processing of LNPs and liposomes (concentration and buffer exchange)
- Concentration and purification (by buffer exchange) of AAVs and VLPs
- Concentration and buffer exchange of nucleic acids such as mRNA and plasmid DNA (in nucleic acid-based vaccines)
- Removal of unconjugated drugs from monoclonal antibodies
- Purification (by buffer exchange) of conjugated polysaccharide vaccines
- Concentration and refolding of proteins
Concentrate Samples Faster with TFF
Unlike centrifuges with traditional dead-end filtration systems, the µPULSE prevents a high concentration gradient from forming at the filtration membrane. This means no reduction in the permeate flow rate and increased sample recovery.
With TFF, the concentration process is continuous and gradual allowing for samples to be concentrated up to 2.5x faster than using dead-end filtration. The exact concentration rate depends on sample size and membrane cutoff size.
The µPULSE utilizes a filtration membrane that is 50 - 75% larger than traditional dead-end filtration systems. This larger membrane boasts a higher membrane flux allowing you to concentrate samples faster so you can move on with your research.
Easy to Maintain with Disposable Filter Chips
The μPULSE - TFF System uses disposable filter chips and transfer tubing. The entire fluid path can be cleaned in place for re-use or discarded for single-use.
Cover a wide variety of sample sizes with 5, 10, 30, 50, 100, and 300 kDa MWCO PES (polyethersulfone) membranes.
"The µPULSE was easy to use right out of the box and fit our process testing needs quite well. It performed comparatively well against our established TFF process and we were able to translate our older process onto the instrument with minimal issues."
Buffer Exchange, Desalting
Along with concentrating your sample, there is an option for automatic diafiltration to facilitate buffer exchange or desalting processes.
Setup is easy with two 50 mL centrifuge tubes located at the front of the system:
- One tube holds your sample solution
- The other a buffer or any other solution of your choice
The system can be refilled with up to 250 mL of buffer for high diavolume exchanges.
"The µPULSE TFF system is a nice compact system for sample diafiltration and concentration. As an efficient alternative to size exclusion chromatography, we have successfully integrated the µPULSE in the process of ADC production (starting volumes between 2 and 50 mL), either for the elimination of residual drug (from the conjugation mix) or for ADC formulation purposes. We are entirely satisfied."
Easy Setup - Monitor from Afar
The µPULSE utilizes an intuitive, web-based software application that can be run on the device or via external devices on the same network.
This easy-to-use solution allows the user to set up the starting and desired volumes and concentrations, diafiltration or buffer exchange, and modify advanced settings to optimize concentration for your samples.
Users can remotely monitor the process of their concentration instead of having to manually check.
