Porvair Sciences to Introduce Microplate Products for Biomolecular Screening
Date Posted: Tuesday, March 27, 2007
Porvair Sciences Ltd. has chosen the 13th Annual Society for Biomolecular Screening (SBS) meeting in Montreal, Canada (15th-19th April 2007) for the North American launch of a range of exciting new microplate products.
At this important meeting Porvair Sciences will introduce new 24-, 96- and 384-well Krystal-UV plates that offer excellent extended photometric performance down to 325nm making them a valuable tool for biomedical screening assays.
Visitors to Booth 1227 will also be able to see MiniSeal™, a new entry-level semi-automated thermal sealer developed for laboratories sealing small to medium batches of microplates. Designed for convenience, the compact MiniSeal only requires a single electrical outlet to operate.
The need to site your thermal sealer near a compressed air source or a dedicated compressor is eliminated. Unlike hand-operated manual thermal sealers, the MiniSeal uses a pre-set sealing pressure to deliver highly reproducible plate seals time after time. The versatile device is capable of producing an accurate and tight seal on any SBS proposed standard, deep well or PCR microplate from 3 to 62mm in height.
For laboratories looking to remove the traditional laboratory 'bottleneck' of solvent evaporation in 96-well microplates prior to analysis or reconstitution in buffer - Porvair Sciences' MiniVap™ sample concentrator will be of particular interest.
The affordable MiniVap takes just minutes to dry down a plate. Compact in design the MiniVap will fit into any standard fume cupboard. The MiniVap is ideal for laboratories tasked with smaller numbers of individual plates.
For medium to high throughput plate-sealing applications the TriSeal® is a versatile instrument designed to produce an accurate and tight seal on any SBS proposed standard microplate from 5 to 47mm in height.
Offering adjustable temperature heat sealing from 50°C up to 185°C - TriSeal is able to operate optimally with most foil and film seals. Benefiting from a unique turntable design, which allows simultaneous loading, unloading and sealing TriSeal is able to achieve an unmatched plate sealing productivity of 12 plates per minute.
