Overview

Polypropylene wells, polycarbonate frame, cut corner A24; working volume: <30 µl, total well capacity: 55 µl; designed for use on standard thermal cyclers

  • Our FrameStar® 384 Well Skirted PCR Plates are designed for high-throughput PCR
  • They are compatible with the majority of 384 well block PCR, qPCR and sequencing instruments
  • The rigid 2-component design eliminates warping and distortion during PCR making it ideal for use with robotic systems
  • The skirt allows for labeling or barcoding

This product is covered by one or more of the following U.S. patents or their foreign counterparts, owned by Eppendorf AG: U.S. Patent Nos. 7,347,977 and 6,340,589.

Key Features
  • Free from DNase, RNase, human genomic DNA, and endotoxin/pyrogen
  • Stackable

Wells

  • Ultra-smooth, uniform, thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR and real-time (RT-qPCR) results
  • <30 µl working volume, 55 µl total well capacity

Frame

  • Rigid polycarbonate frame for added mechanical stability
  • Significantly reduced thermal expansion and sample evaporation for improved consistency in PCR results
  • Improved seal integrity due to thermal stability of the frame
  • Alphanumeric grid reference to aid well and sample identification

Use

  • Recommended for low volume PCR
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
  • Ideal for use with robotic systems
  • Compatible with the majority of 384 well block PCR, qPCR and sequencing instruments

Options

  • Available with the following frame color options for the clear well variety: purple, blue, clear, green, red, and black
  • Also available as a black frame with white wells (for optimum signal-to-noise ratio when using fluorescent based assays)
  • Available as a black frame with black wells (for minimal light diffusion and interference)
  • Also available as a clear frame with frosted wells for use with ABI®/LifeTechnologies® qPCR instruments
  • Available barcoded upon request; learn more about our barcoding options
