Malaria groups at A*STAR and NUS (Singapore), Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology(Indonesia)
and SMRU (Thailand) have effectively substituted the use of CF11 with Sigma medium
fiber Powder (cat # c6288) since September 2011. Preparation of the filter columns
using the Sigma cellulose powder are as per Sriprawat et al 2009 (http://www.malariajournal.com/content/8/1/115)

Unfortunately, as this paper went to press the manufacturer of CF11 put column production
on hold, and subsequently suspended making them indefinitely. While they may resume
in the future, we are investigating and evaluating alternative inexpensive means of
leukocyte depletion. For updates, please visit the Molecular Module page on the website
