Tired of clogging and irreproducible SPE
tubes? Try Strata solid phase extraction
products manufactured by Phenomenex.
strata features an extremel y narrow
particle size range. When particle size
distribution is well controlled, your sample
and solvent will fow uniformly through the
sorbent bed, maximizing sample-sorbent
contact. The benefts are optimum fow rates
and high recoveries. Tube-to-tube fow is also
more consistent, making sample processing
on vacuum manifolds and automated
devices more reliable and less prone to
clogging or drying out.
Over 25 different tests are performed
on each batch of strata including tests
for: purity, recovery, and flow. QC data
obtai ned throughout the producti on
process is documented to provide complete
traceability. You can be confident the
strata products you order 6 months, 1
year or 2 years from now will perform
j ust l i ke t he st r at a pr oduct s you
order today.
Product Selection & Availability
strata tubes are constructed of ultra-
pure medical grade polypropylene, Luer-
tipped syringe barrels with 1, 3, and 6 mL
reservoir volumes. Sorbent chemistries

introduction
Phenomenex SPE vacuum manifolds are available
in 10-, 12- and 24-position confgurations. These
manifolds permit convenient batch processing of
SPE or sample fltration and help ensure consistent
extraction and fltration results. The manifolds
consist of a clear glass chamber and lid to which
a vacuum is applied thereby drawing the sample
through the SPE cartridge or fltration device.
Adjustable racks placed in the glass vacuum
chamber accommodate a variety of sample
collection vessels and test tube confgurations.
CAUTION: Do not operate thi s mani fol d
without frst reading and fully understanding the
operating instructions.

manifold assembly
1. Lid Assembly:
A. Attach the four black legs to the underside of
the manifold lid as shown in (fgure 1).
B. Attach the needles to the male luer connection
fttings on the underside of the lid as shown
in (fgure 2).
C. Firmly insert the stopcocks into the female luer
fttings on top of the lid as shown in (fgure 3).
2. Rack Assembly:
The rack assembly consists of a base, three
attachment posts, a dimpled tube support platform
and a upper rack with either 16 mm or 12 mm
diameter holes. Select the upper rack with holes
to match collection tube diameter.

Vertical adjustment of the dimpled support
platform upon which the bottoms of the test tubes
rest allows the user to confgure the manifold for
a wide range of collection tube heights.
A. Lay the base onto a fat surface oriented so
that the indentation is on the bottom right.
Attach the three attachment posts to the base
(fgure 5). Correct orientation of the indentation
is necessary for the rack to clear the vacuum
gauge assembly when placed inside the tank.
B. Slide the dimpled support plate onto the
posts by aligning the three holes in the plate
with attachment posts. The indentation on
the side of the support plate must match the
indentation of the base (fgure 6).
C. Place the upper rack with the proper diameter
holes onto the attachment posts as shown in
(fgure 7).

D. Adjust the height of the dimpled support
platform shelf so that the delivery needles
in the manifold lid are a minimum of 5
mm inside the collection vessels (figure
8). “C”- shaped support clips attach to the
posts directly under the shelf allowing height
adjustment (fgure 9).
E. To collect eluents, place rack loaded with test
tubes into glass basin and carefully replace
the lid.


vacuum source and waste trap
Installation of a liquid waste trap between
the manifold and the vacuum source is highly
recommended for the protection of the vacuum
source and for collection and proper disposal
of extraction waste solvents (fgure 10). Use
5
/16 inch (8 mm) ID thick wall vacuum tubing
for connections between the pump, waste
trap, and manifold. A high capacity, corrosion-
resistant vacuum pump capable of generating
a minimum vacuum of 10 inches of mercury is
recommended.

manifold operation
Caution: Vacuum should not exceed 20 inches of
Mercury (68 kPa). Exceeding this vacuum will void
the manifold warranty and may cause dangerous
glass basin failure.
A. Turn on vacuum to the system and using the
knurled bleed valve ring located adjacent to
the manifold vacuum gauge (fgure 11) adjust
the maximum vacuum level. The bleed valve
ring also permits rapid vacuum release of the
entire system. Most analysts fnd that 3 to 5
inches of vacuum is satisfactory for proper
fow through the SPE columns.
B. Individual cartridge fow rates are controlled
by stopcocks or optional Tefon control valves.
Stopcocks are fully open when the valve is in
the vertical position and fully closed when in
the horizontal position.
C. Individual stopcocks should be in the closed
position prior to removal of the SPE column
when under vacuum to prevent splashing of
solvents.
D. Prior to removing the lid, it is important
to completely bleed the vacuum from the
manifold by opening the bleed valve ring
(figure 11) or fully opening any unused
stopcocks on the lid. Failure to do so may
result in eluent splashing and sample cross
contamination.

optional accessories
1. Tefon
®
Needles and Tefon Control Valves
incorporating fow control are available. These
are recommended for trace analysis requiring a
plasticizer-free, inert fuid path.
2. Drying Attachment:
The drying attachment is used in conjunction
with 12- and 24-Port Manifolds to concentrate
samples that have been eluted from Solid Phase
Extraction columns. They can also be used to dry
packing beds in SPE columns prior to elution of
the sample.
3. Instructions To Dry Samples:
After the samples are collected in the receiving
tubes inside the vacuum manifold, remove the
lid and replace it with the drying attachment.
Connect the drying attachment to an inert gas
source by securing the tubing from the vacuum
to the brass hose barb on the drying attachment.
Gas then fows into each receiving tube to dry or
concentrate the samples.

4. Leave the SPE tubes on the vacuum
manifold lid:
Attach an adaptor to each tube to prevent outside
air from entering the tube. Attach the drying
attachment lid to the adaptors on the tube with the
male luers of the drying attachment. The drying
attachment will make a tight connection with the
column adaptor by way of the male luers. Attach
an inert gas source to the drying attachment by
attaching the tubing from the vacuum to the brass
hose barb on the drying attaching. By applying
vacuum to the manifold, the inert gas will be pulled
through the tubes and dry the packing beds prior
to elution of your samples.
5. Waste Container:
(12-position manifold only) An optional solvent-
resistant polypropylene liner is available for the
12-position manifold which can collect solvent
wastes generated during the SPE extraction. Using
the waste liner can greatly simplify manifold clean-
up and maintenance.

Attach the needles to the male luer connection fittings on the underside of the lid as shown in (figure 2).manifold assembly figure 1 1. page  . Select the upper rack with holes to match collection tube diameter. figure 4 2. three attachment posts. figure 2 B. Firmly insert the stopcocks into the female luer fittings on top of the lid as shown in (figure 3). Lid Assembly: A. a dimpled tube support platform and a upper rack with either 16 mm or 12 mm diameter holes. figure 3 C. Attach the four black legs to the underside of the manifold lid as shown in (figure 1). Rack Assembly: The rack assembly consists of a base.

Correct orientation of the indentation is necessary for the rack to clear the vacuum gauge assembly when placed inside the tank. figure 7 C. Attach the three attachment posts to the base (figure 5). The indentation on the side of the support plate must match the indentation of the base (figure 6). Lay the base onto a flat surface oriented so that the indentation is on the bottom right. figure 6 B. page  . Slide the dimpled support plate onto the posts by aligning the three holes in the plate with attachment posts. Place the upper rack with the proper diameter holes onto the attachment posts as shown in (figure 7). figure 5 A.manifold assembly (cont’d) Vertical adjustment of the dimpled support platform upon which the bottoms of the test tubes rest allows the user to configure the manifold for a wide range of collection tube heights.

A high capacity. “C”. Vacuum Pump Waste Trap figure 10 vacuum source and waste trap Installation of a liquid waste trap between the manifold and the vacuum source is highly recommended for the protection of the vacuum source and for collection and proper disposal of extraction waste solvents (figure 10). page  . E. Use 5 /16 inch (8 mm) ID thick wall vacuum tubing for connections between the pump.figure 8 figure 9 D. To collect eluents. corrosionresistant vacuum pump capable of generating a minimum vacuum of 10 inches of mercury is recommended. Adjust the height of the dimpled support platform shelf so that the delivery needles in the manifold lid are a minimum of 5 mm inside the collection vessels (figure 8). and manifold.

Turn on vacuum to the system and using the knurled bleed valve ring located adjacent to the manifold vacuum gauge (figure 11) adjust the maximum vacuum level. Stopcocks are fully open when the valve is in the vertical position and fully closed when in the horizontal position. The bleed valve ring also permits rapid vacuum release of the entire system. D. Bleed Valve ring figure 11 A. Failure to do so may result in eluent splashing and sample cross contamination. C. page  . figure 12 B. Individual cartridge flow rates are controlled by stopcocks or optional Teflon control valves. Individual stopcocks should be in the closed position prior to removal of the SPE column when under vacuum to prevent splashing of solvents. Exceeding this vacuum will void the manifold warranty and may cause dangerous glass basin failure. it is important to completely bleed the vacuum from the manifold by opening the bleed valve ring (figure 11) or fully opening any unused stopcocks on the lid. Prior to removing the lid. Most analysts find that 3 to 5 inches of vacuum is satisfactory for proper flow through the SPE columns.manifold operation Caution: Vacuum should not exceed 20 inches of Mercury (68 kPa).

optional accessories 1. remove the lid and replace it with the drying attachment. Drying Attachment: The drying attachment is used in conjunction with 12. These are recommended for trace analysis requiring a plasticizer-free. Connect the drying attachment to an inert gas source by securing the tubing from the vacuum to the brass hose barb on the drying attachment. 2. Instructions To Dry Samples: After the samples are collected in the receiving tubes inside the vacuum manifold. Gas then flows into each receiving tube to dry or concentrate the samples. They can also be used to dry packing beds in SPE columns prior to elution of the sample. figure 13 3. Teflon® Needles and Teflon Control Valves incorporating flow control are available. figure 14 page  .and 24-Port Manifolds to concentrate samples that have been eluted from Solid Phase Extraction columns. inert fluid path.

Attach an inert gas source to the drying attachment by attaching the tubing from the vacuum to the brass hose barb on the drying attaching. By applying vacuum to the manifold. figure 15 5. the inert gas will be pulled through the tubes and dry the packing beds prior to elution of your samples. Attach the drying attachment lid to the adaptors on the tube with the male luers of the drying attachment.Instructions To Dry Packing Beds 4. Waste Container: (12-position manifold only) An optional solventresistant polypropylene liner is available for the 12-position manifold which can collect solvent wastes generated during the SPE extraction. Using the waste liner can greatly simplify manifold cleanup and maintenance. The drying attachment will make a tight connection with the column adaptor by way of the male luers. page  . Leave the SPE tubes on the vacuum manifold lid: Attach an adaptor to each tube to prevent outside air from entering the tube.
