Stericup® filtration devices have been the most trusted systems in media and buffer filtration for decades. The next-generation Stericup® Quick Release vacuum filtration devices present ergonomic design updates that optimize usability and streamline the filtration process, while protecting essential cell cultures with the renowned performance of Millipore® membranes.
The minds of Millipore® scientists don’t stop with the most reliable sterile filtration in the world. Our commitment to sustainability drove us to design a dependable sterile filter device that helps labs attain sustainability goals. Stericup® E and Steritop® E filters provide the same steadfast sterile filtration cell culturists worldwide have chosen for decades—but attach directly to commercial media bottles, eliminating the plastic filter funnel to reduce plastic waste up to 48%.
Stericup® and Steritop® sterile filtration devices use reliable, high-performance membranes for optimum sterile filtration of laboratory reagents, buffers, and media. These devices combine superior flow rates and throughput with low non-specific binding and a stable, no-tip design.

Stericup® and Steritop® systems are designed to reduce foaming and protein denaturation while maximizing flow and can be used for sterile vacuum filtration of aqueous solutions such as tissue culture media and biological fluids.
Sterile filtration performance depends on the quality of the filter membrane. Stericup® and Steritop® filters are available with a selection of Millipore® membranes that set the industry standard for their application-specific properties.
Pore size relates to the filter’s ability to filter out particles of a certain size. Stericup® and Steritop® filters can be selected by pore size to meet your specific needs.
Process volumes are based on funnel capacity for Steritop® filter units or a combination of funnel capacity and matching receiver bottle capacity for Stericup® filter units. Stericup® and Steritop® filtration devices can be used to process and store volumes ranging from 150 mL to 1 L.
Filtration performance depends on membrane performance. Our Millipore Express® PLUS, Durapore®, MF-Millipore™ and Fluoropore™ brand membranes set the industry standard for quality. Combined with the ergonomic improvements of the Quick Release design, Stericup® and Steritop® sterile filtration systems are ideal for your filtration needs.

Our engineers found a device design that retains exceptional Stericup® filtration while providing your lab a way to dramatically reduce the use of disposable plastic and packaging materials. Whether your goal is a green lab certification, or just a smaller footprint, both the Stericup® E and Steritop® E filters are designed to ensure trouble-free cell culture, while diminishing environmental impact in multiple ways.
Stericup® E devices flip sterile filtration on its head—literally. We’ve eliminated the need for the plastic filler funnel by creating a way to attach standard media bottles or glassware directly onto the filter unit. Simply invert the Stericup® E filter/receiver bottle assembly and thread onto the bottle containing media or buffer. Flip the assembly over, attach to vacuum, and watch sterile filtration happen. The Steritop® E device saves even more plastic by allowing you to attach the filter to your own compatible, reusable labware receiver bottle before threading onto the bottle containing unfiltered media.
