ISOLUTE® SLE+ Plate Proves Itself in New Vitamin D Study

02 May 2017

A newly published method for measuring vitamin D metabolites in human serum gives heavy credit to Biotage® Extrahera™ automated sample processor and ISOLUTE® SLE+ supported liquid extraction plates. 


Vitamin D is commonly used as a health indicator. A recent publication in Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry presents new reference values for vitamin D metabolites in healthy individuals, and potential implications for a specific genetic disorder. 

The researchers performed the sample preparation on a Biotage® Extrahera™ sample processor and ISOLUTE® SLE+ 400 μL plates. The authors also extended their gratitude to Sung Baek and Lee Williams at Biotage RnD for their valuable advice on SLE+ extraction, and primary author Jonathan C.Y. Tanga at University of East Anglia commented: "The guidance I have received from you have certainly contributed to the success of this project."
