FrameStar® Breakable Horizontally and Vertically PCR Plate

96 well rigid plate, vertically and horizontally scored, snaps easily into part plates, 8 well strips, 12 well strips, part strips or individual tubes; standard profile, 0.2ml polypropylene wells, polycarbonate frame; working volume: <200µl, total well capacity: 300µl

Overview

The FrameStar Breakable Horizontally and Vertically PCR Plates allow for the most flexible, efficient and cost-effective use of FrameStar PCR plates, ensuring not a single tube is wasted.

Our FrameStar Breakable Horizontally and Vertically PCR Plates utilize the 2-component design of the FrameStar range, which combines the advantages of thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR results and a rigid frame portion for easy and reliable handling.

Key Features
  • Quality
    • Free from DNase, RNase, human genomic DNA, and endotoxin/pyrogen
  • Wells
    • Ultra-smooth, uniform, thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR and real-time (RT-qPCR) results
    • Standard 0.2ml (200µl) working volume, with a 0.3ml (300µl) total well capacity when used with sealing options
  • Use
    • Plates can be broken up in both 8-strip vertical and 12-strip horizontal directions, resulting in individual strips, part strips, or even individual tubes, giving you the highest range of flexibility
    • Breaking a plate is more accurate, more convenient, and safer than cutting it with scissors, as it avoids damaging the sealing rings and contamination of the wells
    • Plates can be filled, sealed and separated for storage, processing or distribution
    • Easy to break at any temperature
    • The plate can be adapted to individual pipetting schemes without the need to waste empty wells
    • Separated strips or tubes can be used for the positive control to avoid contamination of the samples
    • Compatible with all instruments that fit non-skirted, standard profile plates
    • NB: In some cases you may have to break off the end tabs for it to fit
    • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
