FrameStar® 384 Well Plates
Pre-perforated plate which easily tears into strips of tubes or part plates; based on our Standard Non-Skirted Plate, a clear polypropylene plate with 0.25 ml wells and a black grid reference
Available in the following colours
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.
This plate is perforated under the same cleanroom conditions post-manufacture so it can be separated into part plates or individual strips of tubes.
The Tear-A-Way™ plate maintains all benefits of the Standard Non-Skirted PCR Plate, but adds additional flexibility.
Tear-A-Way™ plates allow for the most flexible, efficient and cost-effective use of a PCR plate. Avoid the costly use of half-empty plates or the fiddly separation of plates with scissors. Cutting plates can perforate wells and damage sealing rings, risking evaporation and sample contamination.
Based upon our Standard Non-Skirted PCR Plate, Tear-A-Way™ plates can be quickly and easily divided along the perforations between the rows. The correct number of wells can be separated off for each experiment, saving time and costs.
The plate is available perforated either vertically, tearing into 8-well strips (Tear-A-Way™ 96/8), or horizontally, tearing into 12-well strips (Tear-A-Way™ 96/12). Both Tear-A-Way™ versions maintain all benefits of our standard non-skirted PCR plate, but with increased flexibility.
Scissors are widely used by everyone in the lab for cutting diverse materials, so are typically highly contaminated with substances including bacteria and DNA. Cutting PCR plates with scissors should be avoided as it may lead to contamination of the wells.
The new 12-strip Tear-A-Way™ 96/12 plates allow you to make full use of your gradient PCR instruments. The temperature gradient is typically created along the horizontal direction of the block, thus 12-well strips or sections are ideal.
