Porvair Sciences will exhibit its latest specialist microplates and microplate instrumentation at the forthcoming SLAS 2021 Digital International Conference and Exhibition from January 25-27 2021.
A particular focus of the company’s virtual exhibit at Booth 25 will be specialist microplates and instrumentation for labs supporting the global COVID-19 testing effort. Microplates product manager, Krzysztof Kielmann, said: “Many SARS-CoV-2 testing labs have struggled to find suitable 96-well deep well plates for their Thermo Scientific KingFisher nucleic acid purification systems and have had to compromise performance in order to maintain testing volumes.
“At SLAS 2021, we will present a 2.2ml 96 deep well plate specifically designed to be fully compatible with the KingFisher range of nucleic acid purification systems. Each V-shaped bottom well in our new plate supports the specialised magnetic tips of all KingFisher Instruments – perfectly maximising liquid sample collection, mixing and uptake during the purification process. From sample collection, mixing to purification, our new plate is designed to ensure reproducible purification of nucleic acids from SARS-CoV-2 patient samples."
Also of interest to COVID-19 labs will be Porvair’s new generation UltraSeal Pro, a fully automated tube rack and plate sealer. Designed to preserve the integrity of patient samples, the instrument is able to seal a wide range of plates and tube rack formats using an extensive range of film substrates. Easy to program, operate, and integration friendly, it enhances lab productivity through sealing up to six plates or tube racks per minute.
Janet Cohen, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at Finneran Porvair added: "We have developed lots of informative online content to support our attendance at the digital SLAS 2021 event. Our team of specialists will also be available to answer queries throughout the three-day event".
