Samplicity® Filtration System recognized as one of the 100 most technologically significant products introduced into marketplace.

EMD Millipore, the Life Science division of Merck KGaA announces it has received the R&D Magazine 100 Award for its product, the Samplicity® Filtration system.

The Samplicity® Filtration system provides a higher throughput, ergonomic alternative to syringe-tip filters for the preparation of liquid chromatography samples. The Samplicity® filtration system is utilized in research and development laboratories testing drug dissolution, food safety, cosmetics, biofuels and pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of drugs.

“We are proud to have won the prestigious R&D Magazine 100 Award for our Samplicity® filtration system,” says John Sweeney, Head, Bioscience Business Unit, EMD Millipore. “This recognition is a testament to our commitment to offer our customers breakthrough technologies they can use to keep up with rapid advances in life science. With the Samplicity® system, which enables customers to prepare samples more efficiently and with higher recovery, we’ve met the demands of today’s ultra-fast, ultra-sensitive chromatographic analyses.”

The Samplicity® filtration system is the first vacuum-driven device with the flexibility to filter 1 to 8 samples in seconds, including samples with high viscosity or high particulate levels. In addition, the system has a low hold-up volume, which allows processing of samples as small as 300 μL with high recovery.

The R&D 100 Awards have long been a benchmark of excellence for industry sectors as diverse as telecommunications, high-energy physics, software, manufacturing, and biotechnology. The winners represent a cross-section of industry, academia, private research firms, and government labs. Winning technologies are used in medical, industrial, research, consumer, and manufacturing applications.

Since 1963, the R&D 100 Awards have identified revolutionary technologies newly introduced to the market. Many of these have become household names, helping shape everyday life for many Americans. These include the flashcube (1965), the automated teller machine (1973), the halogen lamp (1974), the fax machine (1975), the liquid crystal display (1980), the Kodak Photo CD (1991), the Nicoderm anti-smoking patch (1992), Taxol anticancer drug (1993), lab on a chip (1996), and HDTV (1998).

Winners of the R&D 100 Awards are selected by an independent judging panel and the editors of R&D Magazine.

The Samplicity® filtration system received the Editor’s Silver Award for best new product at Pittcon 2011.
