Microplastic Capture & Analysis

Capture and observe microplastic particles

Our microslit filters have filtration cut-offs from 10 microns to 0.5 microns, allowing the observation of the smallest sized particles of concern.

Microplastic analysis via spectroscopy

Gold-coated Microslit Silicon nitride membranes enable filtration directly onto an optical, IR, or Raman spectroscopy-compatible substrate.

  • Avoid time-consuming and contamination-prone transfer steps 

Plastic Microparticles were captured and suspended within the pores of a SiN microslit membrane. A Raman spectrogram was captured and correctly identifies the material as polystyrene.
