PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. -- February 26, 2013

Pall Corporation (NYSE:PLL) today launched the Sentino Filter Dispenser to
simplify membrane handling and maximize workflow in high throughput
microbiology testing laboratories. The Sentino Dispenser aseptically dispenses
individual membrane filters with a single press on its soft-touch keypad. The
Pall Sentino range is a complete system of products for evaluation of
microbial contamination of aqueous samples using the Membrane Filter (MF)
Technique. Disposable filter funnels also are available to accompany the
Sentino Pump.

"The Sentino Microbiology System is now complete. It provides the flexibility
needed to best suit the economic, ergonomic, and workflow needs in a busy
microbiology laboratory,” said Larry O’Connell, senior vice president, Pall
Laboratory Products.

The Sentino Pump streamlines analysis by replacing traditional vacuum
filtration systems with a small peristaltic-action pump to draw samples
through a membrane filter. The unit’s compact design makes it easy to use in
confined spaces, frees valuable bench top space, and provides workspace
flexibility. It’s extremely portable, with a rechargeable battery for
point-of-use sampling or field filtration.

The new Sentino Filter Dispenser complements the Sentino Pump. It provides a
fast, ergonomic way to handle individual membranes. It aseptically dispenses
one disc of membrane with the push of a button and its easy-load design
ensures highly reliable dispensing. Process interruptions are minimal. The
200-membrane capacity makes it the largest dispenser available. In keeping
with the design principles, the dispenser is compact and portable for
workspace optimization.

Completing the range, the Sentino Magnetic Filter Funnel is compatible with
both the new Sentino Dispenser and the Sentino Pump. The strong magnetic
attachment of cylinder to base provides one-handed operation and a leak-free
seal of the membrane filter.

“The Sentino range is a good example of our commitment to improving efficiency
and reducing overall costs for high throughput laboratory testing,” added Mr.
