Technical Drawing of FrameStar® Break-2-Ways 96 Well Dividable PCR Plate, Low Profile

Low profile, 0.1 ml polypropylene wells, non-skirted polycarbonate frame; vertically and horizontally scored, snaps easily into part plates, 8 well strips, 12 well strips, part strips or individual tubes

4titude®'s FrameStar® Break-2-Ways PCR Plates, Low Profile allow for the most flexible, efficient and cost-effective use of FrameStar® PCR plates, ensuring not a single tube is wasted.

Our Low Profile Break-2-Ways plates utilise the 2-component design of the FrameStar® range, which combines the advantages of thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR results and a rigid frame portion for easy and reliable handling.

Features

Plate Features

  • The plates can be broken up in both 8-strip vertical and 12-strip horizontal directions, resulting in individual strips, part strips, or even individual tubes, giving you the highest range of flexibility
  • Breaking a plate is more accurate, more convenient, and safer than cutting it with scissors, as it avoids damaging the sealing rings and contamination of the wells
  • Plates can be filled, sealed and separated for storage, processing or distribution
  • Easy to break at any temperature
  • The plate can be adapted to individual pipetting schemes without the need to waste empty wells
  • Separated strips or tubes can be used for the positive control to avoid contamination of the samples
  • Compatible with all instruments that fit non-skirted, low profile plates. NB: In some cases you may have to break off the end tabs for it to fit
  • Low profile, 0.1 ml wells, <100 µl working volume, with a 200 µl total well capacity when used with sealing options
  • Ultra-smooth, uniform, thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR and real-time (RT-qPCR) results
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
