FrameStar® 384 Well Plates
Strips of 8 0.25 ml clear polypropylene PCR tubes held in a rigid polycarbonate frame. Includes strips of 8 domed or flat optical sealing caps
Avaliable in the following colours
4titude®'s FrameStrip® PCR tube strips are a 2-component design, combining the advantages of thin-walled tubes for optimum PCR results and a rigid frame portion for easy and reliable handling.
For the tubes we use polypropylene, which provides the most efficient heat transfer, as well as an inert surface with low binding capabilities for nucleic acids, proteins and other molecules.
By moulding the frame portion in a more rigid polymer, the mechanical stability of the strip has been greatly improved compared with traditional single piece products, as seen in the image opposite.
In contrast to standard tube strips, the FrameStrip® will remain straight and stable, even at elevated temperatures and when filled with liquid.
For colour coding of experiments, we offer the strips with clear wells in 5 frame colours - purple, blue, green, red, and black.
Additionally for optical assays such as those used in qPCR we supply strips with white wells in black frames, as white wells increase the signal-to-noise ratio by maximising reflection of light in fluorescent based assays.
FrameStrips® are available with either domed cap strips or with flat, optically clear caps and are compatible with the majority of thermal cyclers. End tabs allow for easy handling and labelling of the strips.
The products are also available with an off-the-shelf 2D code, offering an endless supply of unique code combinations. 4titude®'s hand held barcode reader together with the user-friendly software allows for reliable and convenient sample management. Fast and accurate reading is guaranteed via the built-in error correction with data redundancy.
