Porvair to Introduce New Range of Innovative, Solid-State Sample Preparation Products
(Nanowerk News) Porvair Filtration Group has announced that it will unveil, at Pittcon 2009 (Booth 3877), a new range of innovative, solid-state sample preparation products enabling life scientists to accelerate the purification of biological molecules and materials.
Using a proprietary manufacturing process - Porvair has created a new highly purified porous polyethylene material. Using novel ActiVyon™ technologies, Porvair have chemically modifed and activated the polymer to create a series of new materials used in the production of an exciting new range of BioVyon™ protein purification and Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) microplates and columns.
BioVyon™ Protein A products offer a new, simple and rapid method for antibody purification. Unlike existing protein purification technologies there are no time consuming slurries to equilibrate and pour into columns. Just remove your BioVyon Protein A plate or column from its packaging, add buffer and you are ready to begin your purification. Unlike traditional gel-based products - BioVyon™ Protein A 96-well plates are fully compatible with robotic systems uniquely enabling rapid development of automated protocols.
The new BioVyon™ SPE products set a new standard in solid phase extraction. Novel solid state SPE technology and superior resin packed microplates and columns results in, lower hold up volumes, better well-to-well and column-to-column consistency and thus better recoveries.
