Filter funnels

Along with the squeeze bottles are filter funnels. These are the  Whatman brand that can normally only be sold by the hundred. Each:  US$4. Filter papers for these are 1" diameter; we recommend  Whatman #4. Funnels are fit with the paper, then wrapped in foil and  autoclaved. Seed is disinfected, and the filter is used to separate  the seed from the disinfectant. The seed is then washed (see wash bottles, above), and the paper removed with sterile forceps to be placed in  flask. Alternatively, the seed may be scraped from the filter paper  with a replate fork. One other technique uses an additional squirt of  sterile water to suspend the seed, which is then poured into the  flask for sowing. These funnels may be autoclaved repeatedly. Inquire  about availability of filter papers.


HEPA fan/filter units

Available on a rolling basis. Inquire. Prices are usually US$500 and  up for 2' x 4' units. Once you use a HEPA filter, you'll never want  to go back to glove boxes, aquariums, etc. For more detailed information click here.


Other equipment

We will be happy to point you in the direction of suppliers for all  kinds of orchid flasking goodies. We can point you towards used or  new equipment, glassware, etc. Inquire if you are unable to locate the needed item on our suppliers’ list.
