#

Vertically and horizontally pre-perforated plate which easily snaps into part plates, 8 well strips, 12 well strips, or even individual tubes; 96 well format plate with 0.25 ml polypropylene wells and a polycarbonate frame

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

Our 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
  • Compatible with all instruments that fit non-skirted, standard profile plates (like our Standard Non-Skirted Plate) NB: In some cases you may have to break off the end tabs for it to fit
  • Standard 0.25 ml (250µl) working volume, with a 0.3 ml (300µl) maximum well volume 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
