Microlute™ SPE starter kit from Porvair Sciences.

Porvair Sciences has announced the Microlute SPE sample preparation starter kit.

This kit contains everything needed to begin productive SPE sample preparation in a 96 well plate format, including two development filter plates and a popular C18 sorbent filter plate, 2ml collection plates, disposable waste trays and, most importantly, the Microlute Acrylic Vacuum Manifold.

The new starter kit offers all the advantages of SPE sample preparation in a convenient microplate format, capable of rapidly processing 96 samples in one run, repeatedly and precisely.

All that is required for full operation is a suitable laboratory vacuum connection or pump.

Handling samples as small as 150µl - the Microlute™ SPE starter kit helps to increase analytical sensitivity by providing pre-injection clean-up and concentration.

Two ‘Development Microlute’ plates in the kit are pre-loaded with eight different sorbents to aid method development.

Once the most suitable sorbent has been identified, whole plates containing the chosen material can be ordered for use with the Microlute system.

Standard 2ml sample collection plates are supplied, but dedicated plates with well volumes of 350 ul and 1ml may also be used to optimally match users sample preparation requirements.

The supplied disposable polycarbonate waste trays simplify waste solvent handling during sample clean up.

Constructed from a single piece of moulded ultra-pure polypropylene, the Microlute™ plate will not bend or distort, unlike individual SPE cartridges which have to be repeatedly plugged in and out.

Using a proprietary technique, Porvair has eliminated the channelling effects that often limit the performance of SPE columns.

Each well on a Microlute™ plate has an individual drain spout ensuring 100% sample transfer and zero crossover contamination.

To recover dried or concentrated sample the Microlute™ SPE sample preparation starter kit may be coupled to a Porvair MiniVap sample concentrator.
