A range of products enable optimized solid phase extraction (SPE) of polar compounds. This includes the new C18 silica packed Microlute plate, vacuum manifolds, collection plates and solvent evaporators all designed to streamline sample preparation. The new plate is designed to offer good separation of a wide range of polar compounds which are not attracted to the C18 tail.
The new plate is the original 96-well format SPE plate used in labs worldwide. The plate provides 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, the 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, the manufacturer has eliminated the channeling effects often limiting the performance of dry powder loaded SPE columns. Each well on a plate has an individual drain spout ensuring 100% sample transfer and zero crossover contamination.
Manufactured precisely to ANSI/SLAS dimensions from extractibles-free polypropylene, the plate is designed to deliver high productivity, top-quality results and trouble-free operation with all robotic sample handling and preparation systems. Porvair Sciences
