"FrameStar® plates led to significantly better results and reduced evaporation compared to standard PCR plates."

Product Information

#

Designed for and tested on ABI® standard blocks; with 0.25 ml polypropylene wells, a rigid semi-skirted polycarbonate frame with upstand, and a cut corner at A12

This ABI® Style PCR plate offers the benefits of our 2-component design to ABI® standard block users. This design combines the advantages of ultra-thin wall polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR results with a rigid polycarbonate skirt and deck for the highest thermal stability.

We recommend this semi-skirted plate for use with ABI® thermal cyclers and sequencers; it can be used directly with ABI® instruments with no adaptors necessary. The only case where this is not true is with the ABI Fast Block thermal cyclers; in which case using our FrameStar® FastPlate is recommended instead - found here.

Features

Plate Features

  • Ideal for use with ABI® thermal cyclers & sequencers
  • 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 quantitative PCR (RT, qPCR) results
  • Improved seal integrity due to thermal stability of frame
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
  • Ideal for use with robotic systems
  • 0.25 ml (250 µl) working volume, 0.3 ml (300 µl) total volume
  • 6 frame colour options for the clear well variety - purple, blue, clear, green, red, and black
  • Also available as a black frame 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
  • Available barcoded

Now Available - Ethylene Oxide Treated Plates

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 9001 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. Read more here »

Plates of this design for forensic use are now available to order under the product code 4ti-OX730C/SBC.
