Vari-Plate™ 96 Well Semi-Skirted, Roche Style

Rigid polycarbonate frame, for use with Vari-Strips™; for use on Roche LightCycler® 480

Overview
  • These Vari-Plate™ frames are molded from rigid polycarbonate for use with our polypropylene Vari-Strips™
  • The Vari-Strips™ are inserted into the Vari-Plate™ frames to form a complete plate, part plate, or individual strip with an easy-to-handle frame
  • As the Vari-Strips™ are interchangeable with the Vari-Plate™ frames, the frames themselves are re-usable; simply purchase more Vari-Strips™ to use
  • Vari-Plate™ frames can be purchased separately, or pre-loaded with Vari-Strips™
Key Features
  • Free from DNase, RNase, human genomic DNA, and endotoxin/pyrogen
Tube strips (Vari-Strips™)
  • Vari-Strips™ have ultra-smooth, uniform, thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR and real-time (RT-qPCR) results
  • Vari-Strips™ have a low profile 0.1ml (100µl) working volume, with a 0.2ml (200µl) total well capacity when used with sealing options
  • Raised well rims prevent cross contamination and facilitate effective sealing for reduced evaporation
Frames
  • Rigid polycarbonate frames, which reduce thermal expansion and sample evaporation during PCR, leading to improved consistency in PCR results
  • Alphanumeric grid reference to aid well and sample identification
Use
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
Options
  • Available as a 96 Well Semi-Skirted Frame, Roche Style for use with the Roche LightCycler® 480
  • Also available as a 96 Well Skirted Frame for universal use
  • Frames can be purchased on their own or pre-loaded with Vari-Strips™
  • Vari-Strips™ are available with clear wells
  • Vari-Strips™ also available with white wells, giving the highest sensitivity and consistency for fluorescent detection during qPCR
  • Available barcoded upon request; learn more about our barcoding options
