Our patented, unique, flexible, filter microplate design allows easy and affordable customization, utilizing a large variety of filtration media. With broad ranging design capabilities, our engineers are able to develop the ultimate custom product. Our fabrication facility is an RNase/DNase free environment, certified ISO 9001:2008, and includes: tooling, injection molding, assembly, testing, and quality control. Through the development of a 3D model, a Stereolithography (SLA) prototype is generated with dimensions that mimic the actual part so basic fit, form, and functional analysis can be performed before a commitment is made to the new We can encapsulate almost any media of choice, and multiple layers of media, in any configuration that will yield the best results for your application. We can fill the plate with your powder or resin of choice, silica, ground glass, or diatomaceous earth. A variety of drip directors are available, as well as a ½ skirt option. injection mold.

THE CHALLENGE To utilize the Seahorse 384 filter plate, change the drip director design to accommodate Illumina’s equipment, and deter- mine the appropriate membrane support for the addition of derivatized controlled pore glass (CPG) media, to accomplish the greatest yields.
THE SOLUTION Designed and fabricated a new drip director that could be used with the existing 384 filter plate. Sampled a variety of membranes due to the flexible plate design. Designed and fabricated dispensing equipment to ensure uniform CPG bead heights, and con- sistent volume distribution. Developed fritting equipment to prevent the CPG from escaping out of the wells during shipping, and dispens- ing of organic solvents without preventing the flow of solvents. THE RESULT A 384 well filter plate, made from natural polypropylene, glass fiber bottom filter, filled with derivatized controlled pore glass (CPG), and capped with a square, hydrophilic PE frit and extra long drip directors.
