Vacuum manifolds are used to draw liquid through a filter or SPE plate into either a waste tray or a collection plate. The application of vacuum increases the speed at which samples can be collected.

The MicroLute™ vacuum manifold from Porvair is precision machined from crystal clear acrylic (top plate) and acetal polymer (plenum chamber). The acrylic top plate allows visual access to the plenum chamber for checking progress of the separation process.

  • Designed to take most filter plates manufactured to the ANSI/SLAS specification with long drip directors
  • Also designed so that SPE plates can be used, especially the Porvair MicroLute™ plate
  • Fitted with valve controller to ensure accurate adjustments of vacuum to the manifold
  • On/Off valve for speed of use
  • Square well collection plate volumes of 350µl, 1ml and 2ml may be used
  • Any plate up to 44mm in height can be used
  • Fitted with a custom O-ring in upper surface allowing airtight interface between plates during operation
