New generation Krystal™ glass bottom plates from Porvair.

Porvair Sciences new generation Krystal™ glass bottom plates are precision manufactured using a proprietary process resulting in excellent light transmission and an ultra-flat optical plane (+/- 15µm) making them perfect for imaging growing cells.

The complete range of 24-, 96- and 384-well Krystal glass bottom microplates is available sterilized for tissue culture to optimize cell growth or non-sterile for assay development.

Deep black plates for fluorescent studies are available, together with brilliant white plates which increase sensitivity for luminescence and absorbance work.

The high optical clarity base of each plate in the range offers the advantage of easy positioning and crisp images when used with confocal microscopes.

Constructed to a standard SBS / ANSI microplate format - Krystal glass bottom plates are fully compatible with automated liquid handling and robotic devices. All plates are supplied lidded.

In addition to cell growth applications, Krystal glass bottomed plates can be used for light-emitting assays measured through the glass plate base.

The special design of the plate virtually eliminates well-to-well light crosstalk inherent with other clear-bottomed microplate designs, enabling unmatched accuracy, higher sensitivity and better repeatability of photometric readings.
