Microplates provide high throughput assay miniaturization in a 384-well system, thereby avoiding the instrument compatibility issues introduced by 1536-well plates while still reducing sample usage. All plates are manufactured from virgin polystyrene resin, except for the black UV-Star® 384-Well Microplates, which is constructed of cycloolefin copolymer (COC) for better chemical resistance and detections in lower UV wavelengths. Wells feature conical geometry, in which wells have a round top and a flat bottom, resembling a truncated cone. Plates are compatible with microplate handling equipment and robotics.
LUMITRAC™ treatment is for luminescence assays, and FLUOTRAC™ treatment is for fluorescence assays. HiBase plates are suitable for all standard high throughput applications. Plates are supplied without lids.
Plates are free of detectable RNase, DNase, human DNA, and pyrogens. All plates have a footprint conforming to the ANSI/SBS 1-2004 Standard.
