Biological samples commonly contain proteins that interfere with downstream applications. The Microlute™ Protein Precipitation Plates uses the CRASH method, in which the protein is denatured with acetronitrile and the flocculant filtered out, allowing 96 samples to be handled at one time. Protein ‘crashes’ out of solution and precipitates directly in each well when acetonitrile is added, thus solving all common problems associated with the CRASH technique of protein clean-up.
The novel dual filter (frit), hydrophobically treated matrix means that there is no ‘wetting out’ and leakage of the sample through the plate before the application of vacuum.
Optional drain cap and top cap mats are available for those wishing to use vortex sample mixing.
