Whatman™ brand offers high-quality products from filter papers and membranes to innovative technologies for DNA sample collection and preparation.

Renowned for quality that spans generations, Whatman™ products are relied on by scientists everyday in practically every lab in the world. Today we’re finding more and more applications in every part of science, from filtration to biobanking.

General Laboratories Accessories

Our general laboratory accessories include microplates for various applications, extraction thimbles, and test papers such as antibiotic assay discs and pH indicator papers. We also offer products for surface protection, cleaning, weighing, and storage that are used in thousands of laboratories around the world.

In any laboratory, products are needed to maintain a clean and efficient working environment, for example surface protection, cleaning accessories, and adequate storage. Absorbent and impermeable Benchkote paper, for example, protects laboratory surfaces from accidental spillages and helps prevent contamination.

Laboratory Filtration Products

We offer a complete range of laboratory filtration products, from filter papers and membranes to syringe filters, capsules, microplates, and filter vials. Whatman filters are world-renowned as a standard for laboratory filtration and are associated with quality, reliability, and reproducibility. Products such as our ready-to-use glass fiber filters, for determination of suspended solids in water, or our Mini-UniPrep G2 filter vial, for preparing multiple HPLC/UHPLC samples simultaneously, help you obtain higher quality results in less time.

Filtration is one of the most common techniques used in the laboratory to purify or concentrate samples. It can be used for many applications such as sample clarification before analysis, mobile phase filtration, membrane-based microbiology, sample sterilization, or particle sampling before analysis. Our Whatman filters are used in a wide range of areas such as quality testing in the pharmaceutical industry and in the food and beverage industry, but also in research and in environmental monitoring.

Sample Collection Cards & Kits

FTA cards and FTA Elute cards utilize patented Whatman technology that simplifies collection, transportation, and storage of biological samples and processing of nucleic acids at room temperature.

Convenient collection products and reliable solutions for transportation and preservation of biological samples are essential in a wide range of forensic, pharmaceutical, biotechnological, research, and screening applications. Biological samples include for examples blood, buccal, tissue, plant, and cultured cell samples as well as microorganisms. DNA and other biomolecules collected with these products may, after simple purification steps, be used for many types of downstream analyses.

Blotting Papers

GE Healthcare Life Sciences offers an extensive line of pure cellulose filter paper products, including Whatman 3MM Chr which is considered a standard for blotting procedures. The pure cellulose blotting papers are manufactured from the highest quality cotton linters with no additives to ensure that no contamination will occur during the transfer steps. The papers are manufactured and tested specifically for chromatographic and blotting techniques.
