IonField Systems is at the forefront of the plastic waste revolution. The standard system of using microplates and pipette tips once before throwing them out is antiquated, wasteful, and inefficient. We offer solutions that can not only reduce or eliminate your plastic waste, but can save you tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars all while improving assay reliability and consistency.
We offer two major product lineups –
PlasmaKnife – Clean any type of microplate by either purchasing one of our automation-friendly units, or by subscribing to our Service Center where we pick up your used plates and return them cleaner than new. Scroll down or click here for more info!
TipCharger – Clean pipette tips in any format(even 1536 pintool) with one of our automation friendly units that sit right on a liquid handler using a single microplate footprint. Scroll down or click here for more info!
New Product: PlasmaKnife
Key Benefits of the PlasmaKnife Process
Microplates are super cleaned, twice – first by a powerful rinse followed by treatment with 5000 volts of Atmospheric Pressure Plasma
The process is effective with virtually all types of microplates
Microplates are ready to reuse immediately
Surface imperfections and chemicals that may interfere with assay results are reduced or eliminated
The PlasmaKnife™ is an automation-ready, multi-module microplate recycling system that will improve your lab’s efficiency. Fewer microplates that you use over and over means you inventory a fraction of the number of plates you do now, have no microplates going into the hazardous waste bins, are not spending your time tracking usage to know when to reorder and your consumables expenses are going down.
During extensive testing, on repeat use 1536 HTS screening plates were indistinguishable from new. IonField has tested microplates from many labs. There is a high probability we have tested the microplates you use. Contact us for the most current information users have shared with us. PKData@ionfieldsystems.com.
Don’t use enough microplates to justify purchase? We also offer customers access to the same technology at our PlasmaKnife Service Center. You can simply ship us your dirty microplates in the boxes we provide and we will ship them back to you plasma treated, with new bar codes and repacked like new -for a fraction of the cost of a new plate!
New Product: 1536 PinTool TipCharger
- Easy integration. 100% SBS complaint. No software interface.
- Fast. Solvent dip to dry pins in 60 seconds.
- Reduced solvent usage.
Like a conventional pin tool cleaning process, pins are lowered into one or two solvents for 30 seconds, then lowered into the 1536 TipCharger for 30 seconds. Pins come out plasma treated, dry and ready for immediate re-use.
Contamination removal is better and throughput is increased. Get the most out of your automation with IonField’s TipCharger plasma treatment process.
