Porvair Sciences’ Krystal 2000 microplate range aims to sets new standard for luminescence and fluorescence assays.
Incorporating individual clear cups moulded into either a black or white polypropylene matrix using a patented `two-shot` manufacturing process totally eliminates the well-to-well optical crosstalk inherent with other clear-bottomed microplate designs. As a result, the Porvair claims that the plates enable users to achieve unmatched luminescence and fluorescence assay readings in terms of accuracy, repeatability and sensitivity.
Designed to the standard ANSI/SLAS format – each 96-well microplate is fully compatible with all commercially available plate readers, robotic sample processors and automated liquid handling systems.
The plates are constructed from ultra-pure grade polystyrene and available in two formats; opaque white microplates offer maximum reflectivity, enabling high sensitivity luminescence assays, with the black option providing the all-absorbing background needed to minimise interference when taking sensitive fluorescence measurements.
In addition, the Krystal 2000 design offers improved cell binding efficiency and enables the convenience of direct measurements on bottom reading spectrophotometers and inverted microscopes. All tissue-culture treated Krystal 2000 plates are supplied lidded and sterile, in individual bags.
