Reference Guide to Microplate Chemical Compatibility
News Aug 14, 2013
Porvair Sciences has announced a new version of its Chemical Compatibility Chart that provides an easy-to-use reference guide detailing the chemical resistance of membranes and matrices used in microplates to a wide range of common laboratory chemicals.
Employing tests performed at room temperature (25°C) - Porvair has compiled data as to the compatibility of different microplate matrices and membranes to a wide range of acids, alcohols, bases, esters, hydrocarbons / chlorinated hydrocarbons, ketones and other chemicals.
In the tabulated chart - chemical compatibility data for each microplate material is listed as ‘suitable’, ‘ok for medium term use’ or ‘unsuitable’ thereby offering lab scientists the information to enable selection of just microplates constructed from materials optimized for their application.
A copy of the chemical compatibility chart is included in the Porvair Sciences catalogue of microplates and microplate equipment which may be downloaded from the homepage of www.porvair-sciences.com.
Combining uncompromising high quality with an affordable price - Porvair Sciences offers an extensive range of deep well, shallow well, storage, assay, SPE, protein precipitation and filtration microplates.
Precisely manufactured in an ISO 9001 production cleanroom to comply with SLAS / ANSI dimensions ensures Porvair microplates are completely compatibility with all automated sample handling systems, microplate readers and washers.
