Overview
  • Tear-A-Way™ plates allow for the most flexible, efficient and cost-effective use of a PCR plate
  • Avoid the costly use of half-empty plates or the fiddly separation of plates with scissors
  • Scissors are widely used by everyone in the lab for cutting diverse materials, so are typically highly contaminated with substances including bacteria and DNA
  • Cutting plates with scissors should be avoided as it can perforate wells and damage sealing rings, risking evaporation and sample contamination
  • Based on our 96 Well Non-Skirted PCR Plate, Tear-A-Way™ plates can be quickly and easily divided along the perforations between the rows
  • The correct number of wells can be separated off for each experiment, saving time and costs
  • The plate is available perforated either vertically, tearing into 8-well strips (Tear-A-Way™ 96/8), or horizontally, tearing into 12-well strips (Tear-A-Way™ 96/12)
  • The new 12-strip Tear-A-Way™ 96/12 plates allow you to make full use of your gradient PCR instruments
  • The temperature gradient is typically created along the horizontal direction of the block, thus 12-well strips or sections are ideal
Make full use of your gradient cycler with our Tear-A-Way™ PCR Plate
  • All of our PCR plates are molded from virgin polypropylene under ISO-certified cleanroom conditions in our UK-based production facility, and as such comply with the same stringent requirements as our FrameStar® range
  • This plate is perforated under the same cleanroom conditions post-manufacture so it can be separated into part plates or individual strips of tubes
  • The Tear-A-Way™ plate maintains all benefits of the 96 Well Non-Skirted PCR Plate, but adds extra flexibility
Key Features
  • Free from DNase, RNase, human genomic DNA, and endotoxin/pyrogen
Frame
  • Non-skirted plates: universal cycler and sequencer compatibility
  • Alphanumeric grid reference on all strips: no sample identification errors
  • Plate is perforated to enable accurate tearing into 8-well or 12-well strips: no tricky cutting of plates with scissors, risking perforated wells, damaging sealing rings, and contamination
Use
  • Allows for the most flexible and efficient use of a PCR plate: no need to run half-empty plates, so reducing costs
  • Snaps into strips for lower throughput: cost effective
Options
  • The Tear-A-Way™ 96/8 8-well version is easily divided into 24 and 48-well plates to fit a 24 or 48-well thermal cycler block
  • The Tear-A-Way™ 96/12 12-well version perfectly suited for gradient cyclers
  • White version available for superior qPCR performance
  • Sealable with 4titude PCR cap strips, adhesive seals and heat seals
