FrameStar® 96 Well Non-Skirted PCR Plate, Low Profile

Low profile, 0.1ml polypropylene wells, polycarbonate frame, cut corner H1, working volume: <100µl, total well capacity: 200µl; universal non-skirted, low profile plate designed for use on all major thermal cyclers

Overview

The low profile wells of this plate are shorter than "standard" profile wells, which decrease the "dead space" between the heated lid of the thermal cycler and the sample in the well. This eliminates condensation forming on the side wall of the tubes, preventing reduction in PCR volume and increasing the efficiency of the reaction. This is especially recommended for reaction volumes below 20µl.

The rigid polycarbonate skirt of this design eliminates warping and distortion during PCR, meaning seal integrity is not compromised and less of your sample is lost through evaporation. Learn more about the features and benefits of the FrameStar range.

Key Features
