Fully Compatible with Automation High throughput MultiScreen™&subscript_begin;HTS&subscript_end; filter plates are specifically developed for use with automation. The 96 well and 384 well plates are designed to standardised dimensions and meet ANSI/SBS 2004 plate specifications. They are fully compatible with automated gripper arms, stackers, barcode labels, and plate readers. Innovative Plate Design Rigid sidewalls are aligned for easy handling by robotic gripper arm and also provide ample surfaces for bar code labels. The plate design protects the underdrain and eliminates surface contact with individual well 'drip directors'. The plastic skirt enables stacking directly with collection plates and improves the vacuum seal when used with a Millipore™ vacuum manifold. The removable underdrain gives full access to membranes and is ideal for applications including Elispot, radioisotope detection and whole organism visualisation. Extensive Product Range MultiScreen™&subscript_begin;HTS&subscript_end; filter plates are available in a broad range of Millipore plastics and membranes. MultiScreen™ Solubility filter plates are also optimised in HTS format for filtration-based solubility determination. Accessory column loaders are available for loading chromatography media for column separators. MultiScreen™&subscript_begin;HTS&subscript_end; filter plates are available in clear, opaque and white. For non-standard plastic and membrane combinations, custom requests are accepted. Available membranes include:
Hydrophilic Durapore™ PVDF membrane
Hydrophobic Immobilon™-P membrane
HA mixed cellulose esters
Negatively charged phosphocellulose
Positively charged DEAE
Track-etched polycarbonate Applications include: receptor-ligand binding; general sample preparation; Elispot; enzyme activity; bead-based assays; whole organism visualisation and radioisotope detection.
