Porvair Sciences Introduces Microlute™ Solid Phase Extraction Microplate
Product News Jan 13, 2011
Porvair Sciences has introduced a version of its popular Microlute™ Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) microplate which provides a wide assortment of phase chemistries and sorbent loadings in a single plate making it ideally suited for method development.
The mix of phase chemistries and sorbent loadings available in the Development Microlute™ allows you to simply and rapidly screen for the optimal retention and selectivity required to achieve your sample preparation objectives.
The Development Microlute™ offers the user a choice of up to 12 different phases and sorbent loadings (10 -100mg) in a standard format 96-well plate. By providing a complete SPE methods development solution that does not need to be constructed by the user, the Development Microlute™ delivers considerable savings in valuable laboratory time.
The novel design of the Development Microlute™ 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 high quality polypropylene, a Development 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 channeling effects often limiting the performance of dry powder loaded SPE columns. Each well on a Development Microlute™ plate has an individual drain spout ensuring 100% sample transfer and zero crossover contamination.
Working closely with the leading automated liquid handling companies has ensured that Porvair Development Microlute™ plates deliver high productivity, trouble-free operation with all robotic sample handling and preparation systems.
