Waters rolls out Ostro sample preparation plate

Waters Corporation, a provider of laboratory information management, mass spectrometry and thermal analysis instruments, has introduced new Ostro Sample Preparation Plate, a new approach for the removal of phospholipids from biological samples.

Ostro, with its proprietary, patent-pending design, was specifically created to offer a solution that removes multiple families of phospholipids.

The Ostro 96-well plate format utilises in-well protein precipitation with a single, rapid, pass-through method that provides a quick, reliable, and reproducible solution.

Waters claims that Ostro removes up to 30 times more phospholipids, when compared to other phospholipid removal devices and traditional liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) methods.

Waters Sample Preparation division director Diane Diehl said that they are excited and proud to introduce Ostro as an extension of their comprehensive family of 96-well sample preparation plates.

“Ostro will be a valuable tool for researchers who are struggling with phospholipid interferences, and provide a complimentary solution to Oasis SPE products Waters premier solid-phase extraction solution,” Diehl said.
