Novum is a synthetic alternative to traditional diatomaceous earth SLE products and provides a simplified approach to traditional liquid-liquid extraction (LLE).
It is now available in one, three, six and 12 cc tubes, expanding the sorbent’s benefits to larger format applications including food safety and quality, personal care products and environmental analysis.
Novum tubes can be automated using a liquid handler and can also be run using a vacuum manifold to run 12 or 24 samples at once for increased throughput over traditional LLE.
The original plate format is suited to high-throughput clinical, forensic and pharmaceutical research analysis.
Phenomenex says Novum SLE sorbent can be used with the same solvents as traditional SLE sorbents while delivering improved lot-to-lot reproducibility.
“Novum has been very well received by researchers who are experiencing easier and faster sample preparation,” said Erica Pike, brand manager for Phenomenex.
“And because we manufacture the sorbent, we are able to provide lot-to-lot consistency, which is extremely important for labs using validated methods that rely on reproducible results.”
