SPE - 3M™ Empore Products

3M Empore™ SPE 96-Well Plates

The Empore™ 96-well plate line is ideal for high-throughput SPE, allowing users to process up to 96 samples in parallel. The unique Empore technology comprises of a series of polypropylene (PP) pre-filters that are layered on top of the SPE disk. The PP pre-filter acts as a depth filter that provides faster flow-rates and reduces the risk of clogging.
