Overview

Standard profile, 0.2 ml polypropylene wells, polycarbonate frame with upstand, cut corner A12, working volume: <200 µl, total well capacity: 300 µl; designed for use on ABI® instruments

  • This ABI® Style PCR plate offers the benefits of our 2-component design to ABI® standard block users
  • This design combines the advantages of ultra-thin wall polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR results with a rigid polycarbonate skirt and deck for the highest thermal stability
  • Learn more about the features and benefits of the FrameStar® range
  • We recommend this semi-skirted plate for use with ABI® thermal cyclers and sequencers; it can be used directly with ABI® instruments with no adapters necessary
  • The only case where this is not true is with the ABI Fast Block thermal cyclers; in this case, using our FrameStar® Fast Plate is recommended instead
