Torrance, CA (August 9, 2012) – Phenomenex Inc., a global leader in the research and manufacture of advanced technologies for the separation sciences, introduces two new Tabless Tube Holder accessories for its Strata® and Strata™-X lines of silica-based and polymeric solid phase extraction (SPE) sorbents. These accessories hold SPE tubes in 96-well spacing to integrate with automated systems. All Strata and Strata-X products are now available in the tabless 1 mL tube format, enabling the user to arrange multiple sorbents within the holders, adding flexibility for method development. Users can also remove and replace a single SPE tube should they make an error, which cannot be done with standard 96-well SPE plates. The Tabless Tube Holders are compatible with the Phenomenex vacuum manifold as well as positive pressure systems.
“Our new Tabless Tube Holders are easy to use and add flexibility to the workflow options using our Strata and Strata-X sorbents,” comments Erica Pike, brand manager for Phenomenex. “Our growing line of Strata and Strata-X products meets the sample preparation needs of a wide range of applications, including complex biological matrices.”
Strata and Strata-X SPE sorbents simplify the method development process for fast and efficient sample preparation prior to chromatography. They remove unwanted contaminants, including phospholipids, and are offered in a number of unique selectivities to cover a diverse range of analytes.
