Technical Drawing of FrameStar® 96 Well Non-Skirted PCR Plate, Low Profile

Low profile, 0.1 ml polypropylene wells, non-skirted polycarbonate frame, cut corner H1; universal non-skirted, low profile plate designed for use on all major thermal cyclers

The low profile wells of this plate are shorter than "standard" profile wells, which decrease the "dead space" between the heated lid of the thermal cycler and the sample in the well. This eliminates condensation forming on the side wall of the tubes, preventing reduction in PCR volume and increasing the efficiency of the reaction. This is especially recommended for reaction volumes below 20 µl.

The rigid polycarbonate skirt of this design eliminates warping and distortion during PCR, meaning seal integrity is not compromised and less of your sample is lost through evaporation.

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
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
  • <0.1 ml (100 µl) working volume, 0.2 ml (200 µl) total well capacity
  • 3 frame colour options for the clear well variety - purple, blue, and clear
  • 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
