Technical Drawing of Vari-Plate™ Frames & Vari-Plates™

Rigid polycarbonate frame, for use with Vari-Strips™; ; available for use on Roche LightCycler® 480 and for universal use

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™.
