AcroPrep 384-well Filter Plates, 100 µL, short tips with 10K Omega membrane are optimized for ultrafiltration applications, offering the rapid and efficient separation of biomolecules.
Ultrafiltration is a membrane separation technique used to separate extremely small particles and dissolved molecules in fluids. The primary basis for separation is molecular size, although other factors such as molecular shape and charge can also play a role. Molecules larger than the membrane pores will be retained at the surface of the membrane and concentrated during the ultrafiltration process. Ultrafiltration can be used in a variety of applications including size exclusion, PCR clean-up, nucleic acid purification and protein separation.
The Pall Omega membrane is a polyethersulfone membrane specifically modified to minimize protein and nucleic acid binding. The low binding nature of the membrane offers numerous benefits, including high recoveries of low concentrations of biomolecules and less surface fouling, which can cause retention performance to decay.
Our Omega ultrafiltration membrane is available in AcroPrep 24, 96 and 384-well filter plates and in a number of MWCOs including 3K, 10K, 30K and 100K.
AcroPrep 384-well Filter Plates enable laboratories to process hundreds of samples simultaneously and have been designed for high volume, high throughput applications. The filter plates feature a maximum well volume of 100 μL and a recommended working volume of 80 μL.
The 384-well filter plates are available with two different types of outlet tips, long or short. Both types of outlet tips can be used for filtrate or retentate based applications, however a longer tip version is recommended for critical filtrate studies. The short tips on product 5077 are ideal for retentate studies.
Pall filter plates are constructed of chemically resistant, biologically-inert polypropylene, preventing target molecules from binding to the plate. They feature an automated friendly design that has a single piece construction and are manufactured in accordance with SBS guidelines. A serialized barcode label allows for easy sample tracking and identification.
