Uppsala, Sweden, August 28, 2012 / B3C newswire / - Biotage® (STO: BIOT), a leading global supplier of solutions and technology for analytical and medicinal chemistry, introduced EVOLUTE® EXPRESS, a novel family of 96-well plates that simplify polymer-based SPE by employing a streamlined 3-step protocol; Load-Wash-Elute. By using this novel approach and removing the conditioning and equilibration steps, necessary with traditional bio-analytical SPE procedures, processing and method development times are dramatically reduced without loss of analyte recovery or method robustness.
The EVOLUTE® EXPRESS design provides a uniform flow in the processing of aqueous samples and eliminates the need to re-run samples due to well-clogging. This clear flow technology makes EVOLUTE® EXPRESS particularly efficient and effective when used with SPE automated systems whilst adding a distinct advantage by allowing consistent, rapid and reliable manual processing of the plates.
"Biotage has built a reputation for offering products that simplify Sample Preparation, promoting high throughput and reliability. This new product addresses a real concern for many analysts who have to re-run samples due to well-clogging and sample variability. The minimal 3-step approach of Load-Wash-Elute will considerably improve the way SPE is performed and offer significant time savings for all bio-analysis labs" says Gavin Jones, Sample Preparation Product Manager, Biotage.
EVOLUTE® EXPRESS 96-well plates are packed with polymer-based EVOLUTE® chemistries (ABN, CX, WCX, AX and WAX) to address most application needs, and a new sorbent selection plate for screening and method development has been added.
