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.

Novel Tumor Treatment
In the first published results from a $386,000 National Cancer Institute grant awarded earlier this year, a paper by Scott Verbridge and Rafael Davalos has been published.
Personalized Drug Screening for Multiple Myeloma Patients
A personalized method for testing the effectiveness of drugs that treat multiple myeloma may predict quickly and more accurately the best treatments for individual patients with the bone marrow cancer.
Cancer-Fighting Tomato Component Traced
The metabolic pathway associated with lycopene, the bioactive red pigment found in tomatoes, has been traced by researchers at the University of Illinois.
Some Gut Microbes May Be Keystones of Health
University of Oregon scientists have found that strength in numbers doesn’t hold true for microbes in the intestines. A minority population of the right type might hold the key to regulating good health.

Novel Stem Cell Line Avoids Risk of Introducing Transplanted Tumors
Progenitor cells might eventually be used to repair or rebuild damaged or destroyed organs.
Tissue Engineers Recruit Cells to Make Their Own Strong Matrix
Extracellular matrix is the material that gives tissues their strength and stretch. It’s been hard to make well in the lab, but a Brown University team reports new success. The key was creating a culture environment that guided cells to make ECM themselves.
Towards Patient-Specific Drug Screening
A new breakthrough by the 3D stem cell printing team at Heriot-Watt could pave the way to individually tailored drug testing regimes, both reducing the need for animal testing and ensuring that patients receive drugs which are most effective for their individual needs.
Artificial Kidney Research Gets A Boost
Development of a surgically implantable, artificial kidney — a promising alternative to kidney transplantation or dialysis for people with end-stage kidney disease — has received a $6 million boost.
