Overview

96 well semi-skirted plate, vertically scored, snaps easily into strips of 8 tubes or part plates, cut corner A12; low profile, 0.1 ml polypropylene wells, polycarbonate frame; working volume: <100 µl, total well capacity: 200 µl

  • Our FrameStar® Break-A-Way plates utilize the 2-component design of the FrameStar® range, which combines the advantages of thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR results and a rigid frame portion for easy and reliable handling
  • Learn more about the features and benefits of the FrameStar® range
  • This low profile plate has shorter wells than the standard profile plate (4ti-1000), decreasing the "dead space" between the heated lid of the thermal cycler and the sample
  • This eliminates condensation on the side wall of the tube, preventing reduction in PCR volume and increasing the efficiency of the reaction
  • Low profile products are especially recommended for use with reaction volumes below 20 µl

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
  • 2-component design prevents distortion of tube strips

Wells

  • Ultra-smooth, uniform, thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR and real-time (RT-qPCR) results
  • Low profile 0.1 ml (100 µl) working volume, with a 0.2 ml (200 µl) total well capacity when used with sealing options

Frame

  • End tabs for easy handling and labeling
  • Eliminates strip breakage
  • Alphanumeric grid reference to aid well and sample identification

Use

  • Rigid PCR plate that can be broken into smaller plate sections
  • Fits majority of thermal cyclers
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
