Porvair Sciences has introduced a new and improved 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 unmatched reproducibility.
Benefiting from the naturally hydrophobic PFTE filter – the new second generation Microlute PLR plate can be manufactured faster and more reproducibly than ever before.
Krzystof Kielmann, Product Manager at Porvair Sciences, commented: “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”.
She added: “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.”
