New Eppendorf LoBind Tubes and Plates maximise sample recovery

Eppendorf launches new Protein LoBind Deepwell Plate 96/2000 µl and extends the Eppendorf LoBind product portfolio to 96-well high volume plate formats. The unique format flexibility enables customers to easily up-scale their experiments and achieve the same high quality results. 

Storing or incubating biological samples for 24 hours in standard reaction vessels can result in the loss of more than 90 per cent of the sample, due to adsorption to the plastic surface. Designed to maximise the recovery of valuable biomolecules, Eppendorf’s innovative LoBind® consumables are manufactured using specially developed production technologies and selected ultrapure polypropylene, for significantly reduced sample-to-surface binding. The absence of any surface coating, such as siliconization, slip agents, biocides or plasticizers, prevents sample interference, while the material’s high chemical and thermal resistance ensures safety in all sample preparation protocols. 

DNA LoBind Tubes and Plates are available for DNA or RNA applications in forensic analysis, microarrays, next generation sequencing, gene cloning and molecular biology. Protein LoBind Tubes and Plates are ideal for protein research, mass spectrometry, protein array sample preparation, and storage of peptide, antibody or virus samples. Both materials are offered as single tube formats ranging from 0.5 ml to 2 ml volumes and 96-well or 384-well micro- and deepwell plates with RecoverMax® well shape.  

According to Daniel Wehrhahn, product manager for consumables, ‘The new plates and tubes bring all the benefits of Eppendorf’s LoBind quality to a wider range of formats. With increased sample recovery rates of up to 99 per cent after 24-hour incubation, subsequent assay results are more accurate and consistent, and the certified product quality and purity avoids lost productivity and unnecessary expense.’ 

Sample handling is facilitated by features such as the Safe-Lock lid on LoBind Tubes and the OptiTrack® high contrast alphanumeric labelling for faster well identification* on LoBind Plates. Shorter centrifugation times are made possible by g-safe® stability, and high stability and dimension accuracy allow for reliable and fast workflow integration. 

Eppendorf’s renowned quality standards require that each individual batch of Eppendorf LoBind tubes or plates is independently tested and certified in PCR clean quality (free of human DNA, DNase, RNase and PCR inhibitors), ensuring highly consistent and reliable quality.

An extensive library of independent peer-reviewed scientific papers documenting the successful use of Eppendorf LoBind tubes and plates is listed at; free samples are also available via this website.

* Up to 30 % faster and less error-prone when compared with conventional polypropylene microplates: see Eppendorf Application Note 202.
