Millipore Introduces MultiScreen®HTS+ Filter Plates for Improved Sensitivity in Screening Assays
Product News Jan 24, 2008
Millipore Corporation has announced the latest addition to the MultiScreen family of filter plates, the MultiScreenHTS+ for radiometric kinase and GPCR assays.
Millipore says that the MultiScreenHTS+ filter plate has a mesh backing to create uniformly flowing wells to improve washing efficiency. The plate design can reduce overall non-specific binding and reduce variability in both background and signal intensities.
The Company claims that the filter plates allow for higher throughput, greater assay sensitivity and detection flexibility. Validation testing showed a three-fold decrease in well-to-well variability and improved signal-to-noise ratio over traditional filter plates.
