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,  uch as LC-MS. Porvair Sciences offers a complete range of products to implement SPE. 

MicroLute™ is the original 96-well plate format for SPE. This device consists of a polypropylene 96-well plate loaded with a choice of sorbent and sorbent volumes. The frits have a mean pore size of 20 microns and are made from microporous high-density polyethylene. 

Choice of popular sorbents

  • Packed bed volumes from 10mg to100mg per well
  • Frit pore size 20μm
  • No channelling due to proprietary sorbent loading technique
  • Working volume of 2ml per well
  • Up to four times quicker than cartridge systems
  • Long drain directors locate accurately with collection plate to avoid cross contamination
  • Virgin polypropylene, tested and chosen for having no extractables
  • Plate designed to be automated, meets ANSI/SBS specification

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