Uppsala, Sweden (June 30, 2014) — Biotage (STO: BIOT), a leading global supplier of solutions and technology for analytical, medicinal and peptide chemistry, announces the launch of the new ISOLUTE® SLE+ 1 mL Supported Liquid Extraction 48-well plates, enabling the extraction of larger sample volumes (1 mL total load volume) than presently possible in the microplate footprint.

The new ISOLUTE® SLE+ 1 mL sample volume 48-well plates are packed with ISOLUTE SLE+ material; each well containing sufficient ISOLUTE® SLE+ material to efficiently extract 1 mL of aqueous sample. Existing 96-well formats have a maximum capacity of 400 µL, the new plates enable customers to extract larger sample volumes and therefore achieve higher sensitivity, higher throughput and lower detection limits.

The new plates are ideal for the extraction of small molecule drugs, metabolites and endogenous biomarkers from biological fluid samples prior to analytical techniques such as LC-MS/MS and GC-MS. Analytical chemists in clinical, forensic toxicology and Pharmacology will appreciate the high throughput and extra sample capacity.

As with the other products in the ISOLUTE® SLE+ range, the same simple load-wait-elute procedure is used with this new 48-well format reducing method development time.

The plates can be processed using microplate compatible positive pressure manifolds, such as the Biotage® Pressure+ 96, vacuum manifolds such as the Biotage® VacMaster™ 96 and most automated liquid handling systems.

The plate is arranged in a 6 x 8 array; with 48 samples being processed per plate a higher throughput than equivalent column formats is achievable. A new compatible 48-well collection plate is also available with a 5 mL capacity so that the entire elution solvent volume can be collected with no need to swap collection vessels.

ISOLUTE® Myco SPE Columns, a Dedicated Product for The Efficient Extraction of Mycotoxins from Food Matrices

Biotage has announced the launch of ISOLUTE® Myco SPE columns, a new product for the ‘catch and release’ clean up of mycotoxins from food matrices, prior to analysis by LC-MS/MS.

Uppsala, Sweden, April 16, 2013 — Biotage (STO: BIOT), a leading global supplier of solutions and technology for analytical, medicinal and peptide chemistry, has announced the launch of ISOLUTE® Myco SPE columns, a new product for the ‘catch and release’ clean up of mycotoxins from food matrices, prior to analysis by LC-MS/MS.

The ISOLUTE® Myco sorbent is a proprietary polymeric phase (patent pending) optimized for the extraction of a broad spectrum of mycotoxins from a wide range of foodstuffs; enabling chemists to utilize a single SPE product to extract all relevant mycotoxins from an individual foodstuff. Using a single, easy to use sample preparation product, along with optimized matrix specific application notes, scientists can prepare diverse samples for analysis by LC-MS/MS.

ISOLUTE® Myco SPE columns have been developed for use together with LC-MS/MS analysis, their selective clean up enables robust, reliable quantitation of mycotoxins without compromising analytical data quality. The coupling of a dedicated polymer based sorbent with LC-MS/MS analysis saves both time and money as more samples can be processed each day compared to IAC based clean up. The tabless 3 mL format of the ISOLUTE® Myco columns is suitable for a variety of processing equipment including vacuum manifolds, positive pressure manifolds and automated SPE workstations.

“ISOLUTE® Myco SPE columns are a real step forward in mycotoxin sample preparation, helping scientists to fully exploit the advantages of higher productivity and highly selective LC-MS/MS analysis through the use of a truly optimized sample preparation regime” says Dr. Claire Desbrow, Global Product Manager.
