Offering 24 high volume (3.1ml) wells in an industry standard 96-well plate footprint, the Krystal 24 from Porvair Science provides a large surface area per well, enabling unmatched cell growth.

Constructed in ultra-pure grade polystyrene, Porvair Krystal 24 microplates are tissue culture treated toporvairpr366-image.gif ensure optimal cell growth and attachment. The special design of Krystal 24 plates makes them ideal for cell culture, cloning, viral titration, and cell fusion. Precisely manufactured to ANSI / SLAS microplate dimensions* the affordable tissue culture treated Krystal 24 microplate is fully compatible with all commercially available plate readers, robotic sample processors and automated liquid handling systems.

The Krystal 24 plate edges and lids are designed to reduce evaporation, and the raised well rims reduce the risk of cross contamination. Porvair Krystal 24 lids are shaped to facilitate stacking. Krystal 24 plates and lids may be supplied sterile or non-sterile.

The unique Krystal 24 design also provides the convenience of direct measurements on bottom reading spectrophotometers and inverted microscopes. For sensitive fluorescence measurements the black Krystal 24 plate provides the all-absorbing background needed to minimise background interference.  The opaque white Krystal 24 plate maximises reflectivity enabling even weakly emitting luminescence assays to be routinely undertaken.
