Automated sample preparation

14th September 2015


Phenomenex Inc and the Tecan Group have announced a collaboration to co-market automated solid phase extraction (SPE) sample preparation solutions. The two companies will jointly market Phenomenex Strata and Strata-X SPE sorbents adapted to Tecan’s Freedom EVO series of robotics workstations.

The solution is especially geared to high-throughput customers in pharmaceutical research, clinical and food testing environments using mass spectrometry detection methods. As part of the global agreement, Tecan will provide the instruments and automation support, and Phenomenex will provide the extraction chemistries as well as application and method development through its PhenoLogixSM group.

Solid phase extraction is a widely used sample preparation technique by which compounds in mixtures are separated, prior to chromatographic analysis. Phenomenex Strata and Strata-X SPE sorbents remove unwanted contaminants, including phospholipids, and are offered in a number of unique selectivities to cover a diverse range of analytes.

SPE can be a time-consuming manual process that is prone to human errors resulting in additional time and costs for laboratories to confirm or repeat tests. Execution of this process on Tecan automated platforms combined with optimized conditions from PhenoLogix will decrease implementation efforts in the lab, increase throughput while reducing human error and enable sample traceability for regulated environments.
