Millville, NJ – WHEATON® announces that it will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the launch of the MicroLiter product line on March 8 during Pittcon at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. As part of the celebration, the company will give away selfie sticks to its visitors at Booth 2357, ask them to take a “selfie” with the MicroLiter product line and then post the picture to social media using #microliter, to be entered in a drawing to win an iPad.
 
“We were excited to bring MicroLiter into the WHEATON fold in 2012 as it fit our company mission to provide purpose-built solutions for our research customers,” said Wayne Brinster, President and CEO of WHEATON®. “We are equally enthusiastic to be celebrating MicroLiter’s 20 years of serving chromatography researchers with our dedicated staff of advisors who work directly with each customer to ensure they get the vials and consumables best designed to meet their specific autosampling needs.”
 
In addition to the 20th Anniversary celebration, WHEATON® will also feature its recently launched AntiBIND microplate product line at Pittcon. The AntiBIND line of products employs a newly patented technology that changes the surface of polypropylene plates from hydrophobic to hydrophilic, resulting in protein recovery increases of as much as 100 percent compared with competitive low binding plates. AntiBIND microplates significantly reduce protein binding and adsorption, factors that until now could significantly hamper researchers working with rare proteins.
 
“These specialty microplates provide a significant advantage to our customers who know the difficulties presented by plastic surfaces when working with proteins,” said Brinster.
