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
  • Standard 0.2 ml (200 µl) working volume, with a 0.3 ml (300 µl) total well capacity when used with sealing options
Use
  • Plates can be broken up in both 8-strip vertical and 12-strip horizontal directions, resulting in individual strips, part strips, or even individual tubes, giving you the highest range of flexibility
  • Breaking a plate is more accurate, more convenient, and safer than cutting it with scissors, as it avoids damaging the sealing rings and contamination of the wells
  • Plates can be filled, sealed and separated for storage, processing or distribution
  • Easy to break at any temperature
  • The plate can be adapted to individual pipetting schemes without the need to waste empty wells
  • Separated strips or tubes can be used for the positive control to avoid contamination of the samples
  • Compatible with all instruments that fit non-skirted, standard profile plates
  • NB: In some cases you may have to break off the end tabs for it to fit
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
