New microtitre plate enables high throughputs

Carl Zeiss MicroImaging : 07 May, 2007  (New Product)
PALM Microlaser Technologies, a subsidiary of Carl Zeiss MicroImaging, has unveiled the PALM CapturePlate 96 - a microtitre plate to laser microdissection unit as a standard high throughput laboratory system.
Up to 96 specimens - isolated tissue areas or cells removed from a tissue sample - can be taken from membrane-coated or directly from glass slides without any manual intermediary step.

The specimen is obtained totally contamination free through the use of the LMPC technology (Laser Microdissection and Pressure Catapulting) on PALM MicroBeam.

In combination with the PALM RoboMover capture unit, the specimens are software controlled and distributed precisely among the individual wells.

In this way, higher specimen throughput is achieved in research institutes of the pharmaceutical industry, in the field of the life sciences or in the area of biomedicine.

After collection of the material, the PALM CapturePlate 96 is placed on the appropriate microtitre plate, and the molecular analysis of the individual specimens can follow immediately after centrifugation.

For this purpose, PALM provides a detailed work protocol that leads to success in only a few steps.

The capture plate is suitable for a wide range of starting materials, and the analysis of DNA, RNA and proteins is possible.

The introduction of the microtitre plate format to laser microdissection opens up new possibilities in conjunction with systems such as PALM MicroBeam.

A large number of high purity specimens is obtained in just a few steps and in a short time.

Already established standard methods in the molecular biological laboratory can now be combined with the LMPC technology for high throughput, thus enabling fast, reliable results.
