PCR Plates with Removable Wells: Flexible 96 Well Plate Format for Molecular Diagnostics
Individual Access PCR Plates are an extension of our FrameStar® two-component microplate technology: ultra-thin polypropylene wells fitted into a robust polycarbonate frame that provides excellent stability. Our Individual Access PCR Plates develop this technology further to supply a novel 96 well plate with individually removable wells combining both flexibility and robustness.
These plates provide flexibility and robustness to molecular diagnostics customers. 96 well plate format is suitable for high throughput reagents dispensing on liquid handling robots, while individually sealable and removable wells provide flexibility to end users to accommodate varying throughputs.
The wells are made from medical grade polypropylene which is perfectly suited for use in PCR as well as for long term storage. The exact number of wells required can be used, meaning no wastage of consumables or reagents. Empty frames are also available for tubes to be transferred to, however, frames can be re-used multiple times, depending on their application.
Each well clicks into place within the frame, holding it securely for use with automation and for transport. Additionally, the fit of the tubes is not compromised following a PCR run due to resistance of the rigid frame to thermal expansion.
