The development of a 48-well solid-phase  extraction (SPE) system allows the step between SPE cartridges and SPE 96-well plates to be managed. 

With the larger packed bed volume and increased sample volume,  he design of the MaxiLute™ offers advantages for drug development, food and environmental laboratories currently using SPE cartridges.

Manufactured from virgin polypropylene and loaded with a choice of sorbents and volumes.


  • Unique design eliminates mess associated with traditional manualSPE cartridge methods
  • Up to 4 times faster than cartridge method.
  • Constructed from a single piece of high quality polymer which will not bend or distort
  • A range of packed bed volumes ranging from 250mg, through to 1500mg
  • Capability to process up to 200ml of sample in one plate
  • Frit pore size of 20μm 
  • Each well has an individual drain spout ensuring 100% sample transfer and zero cross contamination 
  • Manufactured within ANSI/SBS standard to allow easy automation

Porvair's flexible manufacturing approach enables us to consider manufacture of small runs of MaxiLute™ devices packed with specialty resins or sorbents of your choice. Typically, minimum runs of just 50 plates  Can be produced economically.
