#

Featuring PP wells on a PC frame and cut corner at A1, these plates have a working volume of 30µl and a total well capacity of 55µl

This ultimate cost saving plate design is perfect for smaller experiments whilst still allowing for low reaction volumes, saving you money on reagents and reducing wastage of empty, unneeded wells.

Additionally, two users can simultaneously prepare a 192-well plate each to combine them as a pseudo 384-well plate in the qPCR instrument, maximising the efficiency of instrument usage in busy labs

Features

Plate Features

  • Recommended for lower sample throughput
  • Two plates can be combined to give the capacity of one full 384 well plate
  • Compatible with the majority of 384 well block PCR, qPCR and sequencing instruments
  • Matching PCR and qPCR seals are available
  • Recommended for low volume PCR
  • Rigid polycarbonate frame adds to the mechanical stability of the plate - as a result thermal expansion and sample evaporation is reduced significantly, leading to an improved consistency in PCR results
  • Ultra-smooth, uniform, thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR and real-time (RT, qPCR) results
  • Improved seal integrity due to thermal stability of the frame
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
  • 30µl working volume, 55µl total well capacity
