Technical Drawing of FrameStar® 384 Well Skirted PCR Plate, Roche Style

30 µl polypropylene wells, skirted polycarbonate frame, cut corners A24 and P24; designed for use on the Roche LightCycler® 480 with 384 well block

The dimensions of these plates are designed to achieve optimised assay conditions on the Roche LightCycler® 480, and are in a 384 well format for reaction volumes of up to 30 µl.

The rigid two-component design eliminates warping and distortion during the PCR process, making it ideal for use with robotic systems.

Plate Features

  • Compatible with Roche LightCycler® 480
  • 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
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
  • Ideal for use with robotic systems
  • 30 µl working volume, 55 µl total well capacity
  • Features a clear polycarbonate frame with clear polypropylene wells
  • Also available with white wells for optimum signal-to-noise ratio when using fluorescent based assays
  • Raised and colour differentiated grid reference to aid well and sample identification
  • Stackable
  • Available barcoded


This plate is available with linear Code 128-format barcodes for identification and traceability of your samples. To order your plates with barcodes, simply add /SBC to the end of the ordering code for Standard Single Barcoding, /DBC for Standard Double Barcoding, /TBC for Standard Triple Barcoding, or /QBC for Standard Quadruple Barcoding (see Barcoding for more details).
