Product Info

Product Information

#

Universal fit to standard blocks; with 0.25 ml polypropylene wells, a rigid semi-skirted polycarbonate frame, and a cut corner at H1

This semi-skirted plate is designed to fit all major thermal cyclers.

The rigid FrameStar® 2-component design eliminates warping and distortion during PCR, making it ideal for use with robotic systems. The semi-skirted allows for labelling or barcoding for sample tracking.

Features

Plate Features

  • Cut corner at H1 - for a similar plate with a cut corner at A12 for use with ABI® thermal cyclers and sequencers, click here »
  • 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
  • 0.25 ml (250 µl) working volume, 0.3 ml (300 µl) max volume
  • Also available with white wells for optimum signal-to-noise ratio when using fluorescent based assays (4ti-0901)
  • Raised and colour differentiated grid reference to aid well and sample identification
  • Available barcoded

Barcoding

This plate is available with linear Code 128-format barcodes to aid identification and traceability for 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).
