To provide novel medium replacement filters because medium replacement filters used in conventional culture vessels do not have stable quality, require backwash, and were not possible to perform a long time continuous medium replacement.SOLUTION: The medium replacement filter of the present invention is characterized by consisting of a diamond-like carbon-coated metal mesh filter that allows only a medium in a culture vessel containing a culture and a medium to pass through, not a culture. The culture apparatus of the present invention is also characterized by consisting of: the culture vessel in which the culture and the medium is contained; and medium discharge means for discharging the medium from the culture vessel, having a filter that allows only the medium to pass through, not the culture, the filter consisting of a diamond-like carbon coated metal mesh filter.SELECTED DRAWING: Figure 1
