FrameStar® 96 Well Skirted PCR and qPCR Plates

Low profile 0.1 ml polypropylene wells, a rigid polycarbonate frame, and a cut corner at H1



Our low profile plates have shorter wells than standard profile plates, decreasing the “dead space” between the heated lid of the thermal cycler and the sample.  This eliminates any chance of condensation on the side walls of the tubes, both preventing a reduction in PCR volume, and increasing the efficiency of the reaction.  Low profile products are especially recommended for use with reaction volumes below 20 µl.  The rigid two-component design eliminates warping and distortion during PCR making it ideal for use with robotic systems.



Plate Features:


  • 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 frame


  • Recommended for use with robotic systems


  • 0.1 ml (100 µl) working volume, 0.2 ml (200µl) total tube volume


  • 7 frame colour options for the clear well variety - purple, blue, clear, green, red, black, and white


  • Also available as a black frame with white wells for optimum signal-to-noise ratio when using fluorescent based analysis


  • Raised and colour differentiated grid reference to aid well and sample identification


  • Available barcoded


  • Available with a rigid skirt for use with PerkinElmer® Sciclone, Beckman, Hamilton, and other automation systems (4ti-0960/RIG

Now Available - Ethylene Oxide Treated PCR Consumables for Forensic Use


Forensic applications demand the highest quality consumables. Avoiding external DNA contamination is of the utmost importance, and as a result high demands are placed upon manufacturers of products for use throughout the workflow.


At 4titude®, we have a stringently controlled cleanroom production facility certified, according to ISO 900 and ISO 13485, for production of DNA and RNA free products. Following cleanroom production, 4titude®'s consumables for forensic use are packed into ethylene oxide permeable bags and then subjected to ethylene oxide sterilisation. This 2-step processing ensures complete removal of any amplifiable DNA.


The plates for forensic use are available to order as product code 4ti-OX960/C/SBC.





To order your plates with barcodes, simply add /SBC to the end of the ordering code for Standard Single Barcoding, or /DBC for Standard Double Barcoding (see Barcoding for more details).
