Round Bottom Storage Microplate Offers Maximum Sample Recovery
13 May 2022
Porvair Sciences has added a 1.2 ml deep well microplate featuring round well bottoms for maximum sample recovery to its family of 96-well square storage plates.
Manufactured from ultra-pure medical grade polypropylene, in a class 10,000 DNase/RNase-free cleanroom environment, the plate offers high integrity storage of samples at -80⁰, even over extended periods of time.
Polypropylene is often used in the manufacture of deep well microplates as it is inert and heat resistant material. However, standard grades of polypropylene may have high concentrations of slip agents or plasticisers which aid the injection moulding process but risk sample integrity.
Porvair Sciences’ 96-well square storage plates offer a uniform working volume of 1 ml per well and are designed for easy, reliable stacking. Precise manufacturing to ANSI/SLAS dimensions ensures complete automation compatibility whilst raised well rims facilitate reliable heat seal closure. Used in conjunction with a support mat, the plates can be centrifuged at up to 6000 x g.
