High Throughput Sample Clean-up
Product News Sep 26, 2012
The Microlute™ SPE sample preparation system from Porvair Sciences provides a faster, trouble-free alternative to cartridges for high throughput sample clean-up.
Handling samples as small as 150ul the Microlute™ SPE sample preparation system helps users increase their assay sensitivity by providing pre-injection clean-up and concentration users can trust.
As a complete package, including filter plate, collection plate, waste tray and manifold, the Microlute™ SPE sample preparation system offers all the advantages of automated and high throughput SPE sample preparation in a convenient microplate format capable of rapidly processing 96 samples in one go repeatedly and precisely.
Constructed from a single piece of moulded ultra pure polypropylene, the Microlute™ plate will not bend or distort because individual SPE cartridges do not have to be repeatedly plugged in and out.
Using a proprietary sorbent slurry loading technique, Porvair has eliminated the channelling effects that often limit the performance of dry powder loaded 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 system may be coupled to a Porvair MiniVap sample concentrator.
Microlute plates are available with a choice of sorbent and filter, and sample collection plates in a selection of well volumes (350 ul, 1ml or 2ml), to optimally match users sample clean-up requirements.
