Microplate suited for method development

Porvair Sciences has introduced a version of its Microlute Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) microplate which provides a wide assortment of phase chemistries and sorbent loadings in a single plate making it 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 channelling 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.
