Credit: Porvair SciencesThe main application of filtration microplates in scientific research is the removal of particulate matter and debris from liquids. Once the two have been separated using a filter plate, assays can then examine either the filtrate or the particular matter itself, depending on the application.

Porvair Sciences offers a high performing filtration plate including 48-, 96-, and 384-well microplates in a choice of glass fiber, nylon, PVDF, or polyethylene filtration materials and well volumes ranging from 350 µl to 5 ml. Different types of filter plates are available optimized for a range of applications, including cell harvesting, DNA separations, binding studies, plasmid isolation, general filtration, and sample clean-up.

Each well on Porvair Sciences’ filter plates has an individual drainage spout ensuring 100 percent sample transfer and zero crossover contamination. Manufactured from ultra-pure grade polypropylene or polystyrene, all filtration plates minimise extractables and leachables when used with most common solvents thereby maximizing filtered sample integrity.
