Manufactured from polypropylene for extra rigidity, PCR microplates are compatible with most 96- and 384-well block PCR and sequencing instruments, including FAST sequencers. The plate range of standard or low profile 96-well plates is available in specific optimized formats (full, half or no skirt), with well volumes of 100-200 microlitres. Designed for higher throughput assays, where samples are often at a premium, the 384-well plates offer a working well volume of only 30 microlitres. Black alphanumeric printing on all plates ensures easy well identification.
Produced in Class 10,000 clean room conditions, the plates are certified free of pyrogens as well as DNAse and RNAse enzyme activity, which the manufacturer says enables the routine achievement of excellent PCR results. The plates are based on a well design where the liquid meniscus comes below the plate surface, eliminating sample carryover problems when using a plate lid.
