Phenomenex has introduced its first synthetic sorbent for simplified liquid extraction (SLE).
Separations science firm Phenomenex has unveiled its Novum SLE, a novel, synthetic alternative to traditional diatomaceous earth SLE (also known as supported liquid extraction) products and a simplified approach to traditional liquid-liquid extraction (LLE).
Extraction techniques used prior to LC and GC can improve results and reduce wear and tear on the instrument, Phenomenex claims.
As the first of its kind, the synthetic Novum SLE sorbent can be used with the same procedure as traditional SLE sorbents while delivering improved lot-to-lot reproducibility. Because it is a lab-manufactured sorbent, supplies are readily available, compared to diatomaceous earth, which is a natural resource that must be mined.
Novum SLE is designed to simplify the liquid-liquid extraction process by eliminating manual steps and it reduces solvent consumption.
Furthermore, SLE delivers higher sample recovery than liquid-liquid extraction methods by eliminating analyte loss due to emulsions that can form at the interface of the two liquid phases.
Novum SLE is available in 96-well plates, ideal for the cleanup of biological samples such as plasma and urine.
The 96-well plates feature long-drip tips that extend into the wells to reduce contamination and are available in two different loading capacities - 200 µL and 400 µL.
