Extraction thimbles: Whatman™ cellulose extraction thimbles
Whatman cellulose extraction thimbles
Manufactured from high-quality alpha cellulose cotton linter
Excellent mechanical strength and retention
Option for double thickness for added rigidity
Soxhlet extraction for lipid analysis or pesticide determination
Food samples can be prepared for lipid analysis using Soxhlet extraction. Extraction thimbles are widely used for Soxhlet techniques. After extraction samples can be re-filtered with a 0.45 μm filter to remove small particles to protect your analytical instrument. Standard extraction thimbles have a wall thickness of 1–1.5 mm. Double-thickness thimbles have a wall thickness of approximately 2 mm for applications that require higher retention, increased wet or dry strength, or increased rigidity. Measurements can be matched to specific Soxhlet extractor systems. Available in various sizes.
