These shallow 96 well storage microplates are particularly suitable for collection and preservation of samples widely used in cell biology research, molecular biology research, and drug discovery.
Four formats are available of this plate - a U-bottom plate with 300 µl or 350 µl well volumes (4ti-0110 and 4ti-0116 respectively), and a V-bottom plate with 200 µl or 350 µl well volume (4ti-LB0109 and 4ti-0117 respectively).
Now also available: a Low Binding plate with ultra-low DNA binding properties
4ti-LB0109) for sensitive applications such as Next Generation Sequencing sample preparation.
All of these plates are ultra-flat for a completely uniform seal; either with adhesive or heat seals, or with our accompanying silicone sealing mat (4ti-0138).
The plates are manufactured in cleanroom facilities which are certified free of RNase, DNase, human genomic DNA and endotoxins. We use only the highest medical grade virgin polypropylene with high resistance against chemicals such as DMSO, phenol, and chloroform.
4ti-0138 - Silicone Sealing Cap Mat, with 96 round caps
Polypropylene (PP) is the best plastic material for PCR tubes as it is chemically inert, resistant to solvents, and well suited for injection moulding - allowing for production of thin-walled tubes for optimum PCR results.
DNA has been shown to bind to PP tubes especially at high ionic strength, despite the very hydrophobic nature of this material. Different PP polymers are used for the production of PCR consumables and as they differ in their characteristics including surface charges, they consequently bind DNA in varying amounts.
DNA binding to PP surfaces has typically only been an issue for reaction tubes and storage vessels but not for PCR/qPCR tubes. DNA sticking to tube walls is either released during denaturation steps and/or remains accessible for amplification.
Nevertheless, due to a progressing volume miniaturisation and with new technologies such as Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), PCR/qPCR tubes are more and more also recommended for other applications which may require ultra-low DNA binding.
Plates of this design with ultra-low DNA binding properties are now available to order under the product code 4ti-LB0109.Read more about our low binding products here »
This plate is available with linear Code 128-format barcodes to aid identification and traceability for your samples. To order your plates with barcodes, simply add /SBC to the end of the ordering code for Standard Single Barcoding, /DBC for Standard Double Barcoding, /TBC for Standard Triple Barcoding, or /QBC for Standard Quadruple Barcoding (see Barcoding for more details).
Plates can be sterilised on request, please contact us for further information and pricing.
