FrameStar® 96 Well Semi-Skirted PCR Plate With Upstand, ABI® Style

Standard profile, 0.2ml polypropylene wells, polycarbonate frame with upstand, cut corner A12, working volume: <200µl, total well capacity: 300µl; designed for use on ABI® instruments

  • Available barcoded on request
Overview

This ABI® Style PCR plate offers the benefits of our 2-component design to ABI® standard block users. This design combines the advantages of ultra-thin wall polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR results with a rigid polycarbonate skirt and deck for the highest thermal stability. Learn more about the features and benefits of the FrameStar range.

We recommend this semi-skirted plate for use with ABI® thermal cyclers and sequencers; it can be used directly with ABI® instruments with no adapters necessary. The only case where this is not true is with the ABI Fast Block thermal cyclers; in this case, using our FrameStar Fast Plate is recommended instead.
