Examples of specially-commissioned microplates developed and manufactured by Porvair Sciences for specific clients include the unique ‘Flower Plate’ developed for German client M2P-Labs

Based in Baesweiler, Germany, m2p-labs was founded in 2005 as a spin-off of RWTH Aachen University. The company focuses on development and supply of systems for microreaction and automated

solutions for screening and bioprocess development. Using the FlowerPlate, in conjunction with their BioLector or BioLector Pro micro bioreactor system, m2p-labs can provide an intelligent micro fermentation platform. The novel shape of the FlowerPlate ensures turbulent mixing for biological suspensions and broths when incubated and shaken on an BioLector or BioLector Pro system. In addition to the unusual well shape, which is proprietary to this plate, the underside features a clear polystyrene base through which m2p-labs can make real-time physical measurements during the shaking and incubation cycle, giving valuable kinetic information about the processes occurring inside the flower microplate wells as they proceed. This unique microplate is produced, assembled and quality-assured by Porvair Sciences in their Class 10000 clean room in Wrexham, UK especially for m2p-labs. This is a recent example of a collaborative new product development requiring speciality microplates where risk was shared, with costs agreed upfront between the developer and Porvair Sciences thereby reducing development risk and bringing novel products to market much faster than would otherwise happen. The second plate shown here has a microfluidic channel base and is assembled using proprietry techniques by Porvair Sciences for a Dutch University spin-out company. Porvair Sciences Ltd would be pleased to discuss your exact requirements for specialised microplates. We can undertake everything from concept, design, toolmaking, production and packaging for you. We can consider short runs and prototyping contracts, so please do contact our Customer Service team using the information on the rear of this brochure. Please note: Porvair Sciences are unable to supply either of the plates shown in these examples directly to customers – For more information about the Flower plate please visit the M2P-Labs website at www.M2p-labs.com
