Overview

Low profile, 0.1 ml polypropylene wells, working volume: <100 µl, total well capacity: 200 µl; can be used as a standalone product or inserted in any of the Vari-Plate™ frames available for ease of handling

  • These low profile PCR tube strips are molded from virgin polypropylene under cleanroom conditions
  • They are available in either clear polypropylene for standard PCR techniques, or in white polypropylene for use in fluorescent detection applications like qPCR, as they give the highest sensitivity and consistency as all the fluorescence signal is reflected back to the detector
Key Features
  • Free from DNase, RNase, human genomic DNA, and endotoxin/pyrogen

Tubes

  • 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
  • Raised well rims prevent cross contamination and facilitate effective sealing for reduced evaporation

Use

  • Can be used as individual strips, or in a Vari-Plate™ frame for easier handling
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes

Options

  • 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
  • Combi packs available with strips of 8 flat optical caps
  • Vari-Strips™ can be ordered separately or pre-loaded on Vari-Plate™ frames
