Krystal 2000 microplate range from Porvair Sciences.

To address performance limiting well-to-well crosstalk inherent in most assay plates - Porvair Sciences has developed the Krystal 2000 microplate range.

Incorporating unique individual clear cups molded into either a black or white polypropylene matrix - crosstalk is eliminated and the sensitivity, photometric accuracy and repeatability of users bottom reading absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence measurements markedly improved.

Maintaining industry standard 96-well microplate dimensions the Krystal 2000 range is fully compatible with all commercially available plate readers, robotic sample processors and automated liquid handling systems.

Constructed in ultra-pure grade polystyrene, Krystal 2000 microplates are available in opaque white, solid black and black and white combination formats.

For sensitive fluorescence measurements the black plate provides the all-absorbing background needed to minimize background interference.

The opaque white plate maximizes reflectivity enabling even weakly emitting luminescence assays to be routinely undertaken.

In addition to optimized luminescence and fluorescence measurements the unique design offers improved cell binding efficiency and allows the convenience of direct measurements on bottom reading spectrophotometers and inverted microscopes.
