New 96 Well SCREENSTAR Microplate for High-Resolution Microscopy

Company has expanded its product portfolio by introducing new black 96 well cycloolefin microplate.

Greiner Bio-One has unveiled a new black 96 well cycloolefin microplate at the ‘Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening’ (SLAS) conference exhibition in Orlando, Florida.

Especially developed for high-resolution microscopy, the ultra-low well base of SCREENSTAR enables high magnification microscopy of perimeter wells, even with a minimum working distance.

Greiner Bio-One has expanded its microplate product portfolio with the introduction of a new black 96 well microplate that features a 190 μm ultra-clear film bottom.

Manufactured entirely of cycloolefin, an innovative material with glass-like optical properties, SCREENSTAR facilitates outstanding image quality of well contents.

The microplate's key advantage over other plates for high-resolution microscopy is the extremely short distance between the well bottom and the microplate skirt (internal well to skirt bottom = 0.7 mm; external well to skirt bottom = 0.51 mm), rendering ease of high magnification microscopy at perimeter wells without complex microscopic adjustments.

The circular wells allow microscopic work without disruptive shadow using the smallest possible meniscus lens.

The perimeter ditch can be filled with water or medium to reduce edge effect due to evaporation, especially for long incubation periods.

A proven Greiner Bio-One cell culture treatment quality ensures reliable, uniform growth.

The 96 well SCREENSTAR plate is available in black with a 190 μm clear film bottom, cell culture treated, sterile, with lid, individually packed.

The microplate well bottoms are protected by a film that must be removed prior to use.

The identical microscopy plate is additionally available with a glass bottom and will be unveiled shortly.
