While colloidal phases in natural waters are important to the speciation and bioavailability of trace metals and organic compounds, accurate isolation of these submicron entities from their lower molecular-weight counterparts has proved challenging. Here, both laboratory and field experiments have been conducted to constrain integrity aspects of two different cross-flow filtration (CFF) systems. We tested both a commonly applied 5000 cm2 CFF system (Pellicon2, Millipore; manufacturer-specified… CONTINUE READING
