Designed for use on ABI® instruments; a polypropylene plate with 0.2 ml wells, upstand, and a cut corner at A12


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 and no recalibration of the instruments 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.

All of our PCR plates are moulded from virgin polypropylene under ISO certified cleanroom conditions in our UK-based production facility, and as such comply with the same stringent requirements as our FrameStar® range.

Features

Plate Features

  • Designed for and compatible with ABI® thermal cyclers and Real Time PCR instruments
  • Ultra-smooth, uniform, thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR and real-time qPCR results
  • Maximum thermal conductivity for efficient heat transfer and precise thermal cycling
  • Raised well rims prevent cross contamination and facilitate effective sealing for reduced evaporation
  • Clear version has super clear wells for maximum sample visibility
  • Also available with frosted wells for increased qPCR signal intensities and improved detection sensitivity
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
  • Subject to a strict QC procedure which includes a visual check and leak testing of every tube
  • Standard 0.2 ml (200 µl) working volume, with a 0.3 ml (300 µl) total volume when used with sealing options
  • Available barcoded


Alternatively, our FrameStar® 2-component PCR plate range offers a plate with the same dimensions, but with the added benefits of a polycarbonate frame that eliminates plate distortion and warping during the PCR process, leading to less evaporation and sample loss. The range is also available with frosted wells for ABI®/Life Technologies® qPCR instrument users. Take a look here »

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).
