Do you ever daydream about a surprise birthday party your lab colleagues might organise for you? A secret party that you are completely oblivious to and don’t even notice the subtle hints of confetti bags and unblown balloons lying around. That happened to me. They blew up the balloons and ordered my favourite double chocolate dream gateau cake but when I was blowing out the candles, my only wish was that everything would go well with my sample results so I could get home to my family to celebrate. I had prepared and loaded samples earlier and was now eager to avoid re-runs and lost time.
Sample preparation is often inconvenient. On bad days, it’s totally ineffective, resulting in sample failure, costly re-runs and lost time. SOLA and SOLAµ Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) cartridges and plates help prevent costly reanalysis with bioanalytical samples by preventing blocking, voiding and channeling during the SPE process. Award-winning fritless polymeric technology eliminates conventional SPE issues so that you can remove variability, prevent blocked wells or cartridges and reduce re-analysis -- now, also available in new SOLA SPE 30 mg bed weight for higher loading capacity.
So, if the surprise party does happen, you can relax and enjoy your cake as SOLA & SOLAμ SPE products are available in a range of phases, formats and sizes to suit any bioanalysis application.
