Amplate™ Raised Rim thin wall PCR plates are the latest addition to the wide range of Simport PCR products. Offering just the right rigidity for automation, these three 96-well plates, made in a standard 8 x 12 configuration, are perfectly suited for high performance thermal cycling. Each well makes intimate contact with the heating block while quick and consistent heat transfer is ensured by a uniform wall thickness. Using a special polypropylene, samples are easily recovered thanks to a low adhesion surface. Well capacity: T323-100 and -101 Series: 250 µl, T323-103 Series: 200 µL.
These plates offer the right alternative to existing Robbins, Corning and Perkin Elmer models. T323-100 and –101 Series have a 3 mm raised rim around each tube well.
The latter is supplied with a wide skirt extending over and under the plate on which a bar code can be affixed to facilitate identification. Series T323-103 will also offer the same skirt but the rim above each tube well is only 1 mm high.
All sealing methods can be used for oil-free operation: domed and flat cap strips (T321 Series); SecureSeal™ Thermal Sealing Film (T329-1); SecureSeal™ Aluminium Sealing Foil (T329-5) and Amplate™ Mat (T329-10). However Series T323-103 will accommodate micromats only. To facilitate orientation, one corner of the plate is cut away. An alphanumeric grid helps sample identification.
