Porvair Sciences launches Microlute CP, a range of Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) 96-well microplates and cartridges designed to enhance the reproducibility of analyte extraction and recovery from biological, environmental and chemical samples.
Microlute CP uses a hybrid structure, a solid interconnected network of evenly distributed pores combined with the retentive media. This is designed to enhance the flow-through of samples to maximise interactions between analytes and the solid phase to deliver a reproducible SPE method that excels in performance, cleanliness and sensitivity.
Microplates and cartridges within the range benefit from a recent technological development which enables immobilisation of active media within the structure of Vyon, a porous plastic to form a structured interconnected network of even distributed pores. This hybrid technology results in the formation of a chemically active porous filter, a unique structure that overcomes inconsistencies and variabilities often associated with loose-packed methods.
The porous properties of Microlute CP enables a consistent and controlled flow of samples throughout the filter, leading to overall better extraction and recovery performance. The single solid structure of plates eliminates the need for multiple porous filters for media support – which can further disrupt flow rates and lead to an unwanted material breakthrough.
The technological advances have resulted in an SPE methodology that extracts and cleans up samples with enhanced reproducibility (< 4% RSD), meaning greater confidence in results. With no flow-through or packing variability, Microlute CP is a SPE sample preparation tool which is suitable for high throughput analysis.
Additional benefits of the efficient sample clean-up and concentration provided by Microlute CP include cost savings, reduced analysis time, less solvent use than LLE and SLE methods increased limit of detection (LoD) and quantification (LoQ). Cleaner samples can also enable longer column life and reduced system downtime.
