The standard procedure to separate particles from a solutions is a gravimetric filtration. This method is time consuming and could also result in small amounts of evaporation of the liquid.

A good example for this application is the preparation of sugar samples in the reception laboratory. Instead of using a gravimetric filtration, the automatic filtration systems AutoFilt reduces the filtration time by at least a  factor of 10 and ensures a turbidity free solution in a very short time. The AutoFilt in its two versions is the perfect accessory for the implementation of NIR Polarimetry (Icumsa Method GS1/2/3-2 (2005), GS7-31(2011)) in the lab.
