Whatman is dedicated to providing the most advanced technology for sample preparation to meet the growing demands of the life sciences market. Whatman filters are used worldwide for research, analysis and quality control in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. These high-quality filters are provided in a range of multiwell analytical plates for pharmaceutical and life science research.
Whatman utilizes a novel patented process to encapsulate the filter media, which ensures no cross talk or contamination between wells. This proprietary technology allows for use of a variety of Whatman filter media. In addition, to further optimize the filter plates for specific applications, novel polymers, surface treatments, well densities, profiles, and accessories are incorporated into the process. Our microplate technology is applied by a team of engineers, scientists, polymer engineers, and filtration experts to ensure Whatman is at the leading edge of new developments.
The Whatman multiwell range of products is extremely diverse. The novel design of the filter plates allows for a large number of applications. Applications for disciplines such as sample preparation, genomics, and filter based assays are served by the multiwell approach to filtration technology. Some core applications include sample clean-up, cell-based immunoassay, isolation of nucleic acids, and compound library generation using parallel synthesis procedures.
