The Zone-Free Sealing Film is comprised of a 70 µm-thick polyethylene membrane that is easily pierced by single or multichannel Pipettors, robotic probes, HPLC/LCMS sampling systems, and handheld pipettes. There is no adhesive over each well aperture and the polyethylene film is inert and chemically resistant, withstanding temperature exposure ranging from -40 to 90 °C. The film does not reseal […]
The answer is most likely yes. The U-2D™ 96 well plate system integrates well for most SPE, filtration, or transfer needs. The plate system meets ANSI/SLAS Microplate Standards for on-center well spacing and footprint dimensions. This standards conformance allows the U-2D™ 96 well plate system to seamlessly integrate with both bench top equipment as well as automation units […]
Yes, with the rack nested into the Base, our U-2D™ will function similarly to a typical 96-well microtiter plate system. Currently, we have confirmed normal operation up to 2,500 x g. Click HERE for U-2D Micro-Sample Management System Ordering Information
The 350 µL inserts used in the U-2D product are made of Class A, Type 33 borosilicate glass but are of a special design which resists bubble formation. The U-2D inserts, standard or deactivated, can be autoclaved, sterilized, processed in a centrifuge, or stored similar to any other borosilicate glass material. Additionally, the U-2D inserts, once placed […]
How to Define Custom Plate Measurements for the U-2D Micro-Sample Management System in the Waters Acquity Console software
The Waters Acquity UHPLC chromatography software is programmable for X,Y,Z sampling. The pre-existing configurations are pre-programmed and stored for customers to get up and running fast. The system expects to hit resistance within some tolerance of the configured heights, or it will error. This is a ‘fail-safe’ to prevent damage to the autosampler if the […]
You can distinguish U-2D™ inserts (used vs. unused) by one of the following ways: A. Used samples can be indicated on the silicone mat/film using a marker. B. Alternatively, the film or mat can be cut with scissors to an appropriate size to protect unused inserts or to help keep track of used inserts. […]
The U-2D™ Inserts can be written on using our laboratory markers found HERE. Also, the U-2D™ Racks have positions that are marked with alpha-numeric embossed markings on the sides of the racks.
What is the chemical compatibility of the Chemical Resistant (CR) sealing mats for U-2D™ Micro-Sample Management System?
For a blanket statement you could say they have good chemical resistance to water, acids and bases, and polar solvents but poor resistance to hydrocarbon based oils, fuels and solvents.
We recommend our line of AQ™ Brand 9mm Screw Top or Snap/Crimp Top vials which are manufactured to mate precisely the vial’s inner dimensions and the inserts length and outer dimensions, offering maximum performance unmatched by anyone for quality control and the specs required for consistent performance. Other brands of standard wide-opening 9mm 12x32mm screw […]
