Porvair Vacuum manifolds for 96-well plates

Vacuum Manifolds for 96-Well Plates from Porvair

MicroLute Vacuum Manifold from Porvair Sciences is precision machined from crystal clear acrylic (top plate) and acetal polymer (plenum chamber). The acrylic top plate allows visual access to the plenum chamber for checking progress of the separation process.

Universal Robotic Manifold is designed to be easily assembled and disassembled by robotic manipulators, thus enabling productive automation of SPE or DNA clean-up procedures. Able to accommodate collection plates from 14 - 44 mm in height and adaptable for working with short, medium and long skirts and drip directors, the Universal Robotic Manifold can operate with many different brands of filter plate and collection trays. Supplied with an integral vacuum gauge, the Manifold provides complete control of vacuum pressure ensuring plates are processed with high reproducibility. The Manifold is fully compatible with most commercial robotic liquid handling systems. The Universal Robotic Manifold is suitable for a range of manufacturer’s plates without an adaptor. For certain plate types a Shallow Adaptor or a Deep Adaptor, is required.
