New Pneumatic Presston™ 1000 Positive Pressure Manifold Increases Productivity for 96-Well Plate Processing

Streamlining Your Sample Preparation Process Has Never Been Easier Thanks to Phenomenex

TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Phenomenex, Inc., a global leader in the research, design, and manufacture of advanced technologies for the separation sciences, introduces Presston™ 1000 Positive Pressure Manifold for 96-well plate sample preparation processing. As an advanced alternative to traditional vacuum manifold processing, Presston 1000 applies pressure from above a well plate to pass liquids through the sample preparation product at a constant flow. This greatly reduces the inconsistent pressures that are inherent in vacuum techniques and provides a more reproducible solution for mid to high-throughput laboratories.

To offer a wider applicability, Presston 1000 is equipped for processing samples in both a low pressure setting for typical solid phase extraction steps and a high pressure setting for very viscous sample processing and for sample dry down. In addition to the Presston 1000's consistency, wide applicability, and effective pneumatic processing, this new positive pressure manifold is designed to provide an additional safety feature that not only provides less manual work but is ergonomically efficient.

"With this new Presston 1000 Positive Pressure Manifold customers can now process a wider variety of sample preparation products and achieve more reproducible results in less time," says Jenny Cybulski, Product Marketing Manager for Phenomenex. "The ease-of-use and pneumatic handling provides a resolution for mid-sized laboratories looking to reduce variation between samples."

Presston 1000 is compatible with standard 96-well plates, microelution plates, and 1 mL tubes, with the addition of a tabless tube holder. This includes products such as Phenomenex's Strata® and Strata-X solid phase extraction (SPE), Novum™, Strata DE Supported Liquid Extraction (SLE), Phree™ Phospholipid Removal, Impact™ Protein Precipitation Plates, β-Gone™ β-Glucuronidase Removal, and Clarity® Synthetic DNA and RNA BioSolutions.
