Testing & QA



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.
