A new report details how Slit Seals offer significant benefits compared to conventional silicone mats for maintaining the integrity of microplate samples. In their drive to identify new drug entities, the pharmacokinetics department of a Japanese pharmaceutical company used a mass spectrometer served by an autosampler handling biological samples prepared in 96-well microplates. Traditionally, the department used silicone mats to maintain the integrity of their microplate samples. While this approach worked well, it was expensive and the silicone plate seals had to be carefully washed before reuse as contamination from the biological samples handled was a concern. Switching to disposable RAPID Slit Seals from BioChromato, the pharmacokinetics department has eliminated the previous biological contamination problem and significantly reduced the cost per analysis.
