Deep well polypropylene microplates are commonly used for sample storage in life science laboratories. An essential aspect of the manufacture of these plates is the selection of clean raw materials for injection moulding. Polypropylene is an inert and heat resistant material, ideal for sample storage.
Porvair Sciences have a range of clear polystyrene bottom, glass bottom and solid bottom assay plates that are specifically designed for absorbance, fluorescence, luminescence and scintillation applications.
Filtration plates are used in their simplest form to remove particulate matter from liquid. Either the particulate matter or the filtrate is needed for further study. Porvair Sciences has a range of filter plates to suit most filtration applications.
Solid phase extraction (SPE) is a method of sample preparation that concentrates and purifies analytes from solution by sorption, followed by elution of the analyte with a solvent appropriate for instrumental analysis, such as LC-MS. Porvair Sciences offers a complete range of products to implement SPE.
The complete Microlute™ system provides a matched filter plate, vacuum manifold and choice of collection plates with the option of a dedicated sample concentrator, if needed. Microlute™ plates are designed to fit most available manifolds and positive pressure devices.
Porvair Sciences reservoir trays are designed for use with any robotic liquid handling system. These reservoirs offer options for a single liquid or a partitioned space for several liquids. Most working configurations are accounted for as well as varying liquid volumes.
Porvair Sciences has developed a range of units to meet the needs of low, medium and high throughput laboratories for microplate sealing.
