VP 179CJ One of our customers asked us to make an aspiration manifold that could be used to remove unbound reagents from 384 well microplates from different manufactures and consequently with different well depths. Our solution was to modify a VP 179C by putting shoulder bolts on it so it can adapt to the VP 179A Jig. The result is the VP 179CJ. These manifolds are resistant to acids, bases and organic solvents as they are made with a rugged polypropylene body and 20 gauge 316 stainless steel tubing (low magnetism). Because there are 384 tubes (20 gauge) a very high vacuum is required. To facilitate the vacuum requirements we have fitted the VP 179CJ with two large bore nipples. If you do not have a high vacuum source we recommend you use our VP 179BJ which uses 23 gauge tubing.
The shoulder bolts register the manifold to the Jig and the Jig can be adjusted in all 3 axis X, Y, and Z for perfect positioning of the tubes in the wells. The alignment of the plates with the tubes is a snap.
This manifold can also be sterilized by autoclave and used to aspirate sterile media.
