Untreated microplates for growing cells in suspension


A new range of 12-, 24-, 48- and 96 well format untreated polystyrene culture microplates are designed for growing cells in stationary suspension or other applications where reduced cell attachment is desired.

Untreated polystyrene plates are the lab tool of choice for growing embryoid bodies and other cells where cell attachment needs to be reduced or avoided. Natural, unmodified polystyrene surfaces are hydrophobic and only bind cells and biomolecules through passive hydrophobic interactions.

Moulded from ultra-pure polystyrene in a class 100,000 cleanroom production environment, the untreated culture plates are supplied with lids in individual sterile packs. The untreated culture plates’ design includes raised well rims to reduce evaporation, a single position lid to avoid cross contamination and alphanumeric code marking to enable easy identification of individual wells.  Porvair Sciences
