Benefiting from the naturally hydrophobic PFTE filter – the updated Microlute PLR plate can be manufactured faster and more reproducibly than ever before
Porvair Sciences has introduced an updated version of its Microlute PLR phospholipid removal microplate designed to enhance the flow of samples through a proprietary filter to maximise the recovery of analytes with high reproducibility.
Benefiting from the naturally hydrophobic PFTE filter – the updated Microlute PLR plate can be manufactured faster and more reproducibly than ever before.
Krzystof Kielmann, Product Manager at Porvair Sciences said: "Our Microlute PLR beneficially combines our market-leading expertise of filter/porous plastic manufacturing and microplate manufacturing. Unlike traditional loose-filled products, the solid interconnected network of evenly distributed pores in a Microlute PLR plate allow biological fluids to flow smoothly and consistently throughout the filter. As a result, the Microlute PLR is able to efficiently remove a wide range of phospholipids from plasma and serum samples and increase the sensitivity and integrity of your UHPLC/HPLC methods.
"Our tests show that the new plate offers greater than 99% removal with high levels of recovery and reproducibility for a wide range of acidic, basic or neutral analytes. Lab scientists will benefit from the easy-to-use Microlute PLR protocol, enabling them to reliably and reproducibly remove phospholipids and recover analytes first time and every time. High-throughput studies will benefit from the reproducible, high performing sample preparation workflow of the Microlute PLR".
