Overview

Low profile, 0.1 ml polypropylene wells, polycarbonate frame, cut corner H1, working volume: <100 µl, total well capacity: 200 µl; universal non-skirted, low profile plate designed for use on all major thermal cyclers

  • The low profile wells of this plate are shorter than "standard" profile wells, which decrease the "dead space" between the heated lid of the thermal cycler and the sample in the well
  • This eliminates condensation forming on the side wall of the tubes, preventing reduction in PCR volume and increasing the efficiency of the reaction
  • This is especially recommended for reaction volumes below 20 µl
  • The rigid polycarbonate skirt of this design eliminates warping and distortion during PCR, meaning seal integrity is not compromised and less of your sample is lost through evaporation

Key Features

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

Wells

  • Ultra-smooth, uniform, thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR and real-time (RT-qPCR) results
  • <0.1 ml (100 µl) working volume, 0.2 ml (200 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 frame
  • Alphanumeric grid reference to aid well and sample identification

Use

  • Recommended for low volume PCR
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes

Options

  • Available with the following frame color options for the clear well variety: purple, blue, and clear
  • Also available as a black frame with white wells for optimum signal-to-noise ratio when using fluorescent based assays
