Rigid polycarbonate Vari-Plate™ frames for use with Vari-Strips™; 3 types available - Roche Style, ABI® FastPlate Style, and Universal-Fit Skirted

These Vari-Plate™ frames are moulded from rigid polycarbonate for use with our polypropylene Vari-Strips™.

The Vari-Strips™ are inserted into the Vari-Plate™ frames to form a complete plate, part plate, or individual strip with an easy-to-handle frame.

As the Vari-Strips™ are interchangeable with the Vari-Plate™ frames, the frames themselves are re-useable; simply purchase more Vari-Strips™ to use.

Vari-Plate™ frames can be purchased separately, or pre-loaded with Vari-Strips™.

Features

Plate Features

  • Rigid polycarbonate frames, which reduce thermal expansion and sample evaporation during PCR, leading to an improved consistency in PCR results
  • 3 types of frame available - a Semi-Skirted Roche Style Frame for use with the Roche LightCycler® 480, a Semi-Skirted ABI® FastPlate Frame for use with ABI® FAST Block cyclers, and a Universal-Fit Skirted Frame
  • Frames can be purchases on their own or pre-loaded with Vari-Strips™
  • Vari-Strips™ have ultra-smooth, uniform, thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR and real-time (RT, qPCR) results
  • Vari-Strips™ have a low profile 0.15 ml (150 µl) working volume, with a 0.2 ml (200 µl) maximum well volume when used with sealing options
  • Raised well rims prevent cross contamination and facilitate effective sealing for reduced evaporation
  • Vari-Strips™ are available with clear or white well tubes - white well tubes giving the highest sensitivity and consistency for fluorescent detection during qPCR
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
