Thermo Fisher Scientific Announces ‘ABgene Plate of the Month’ for April 2009
News Apr 06, 2009
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced the Thermo Scientific ABgene® Semi-Skirted MKII 96-well PCR Plate with black lettering (ref AB-1400-L) as its “Plate of the Month” for April 2009.
The Plate of the Month initiative celebrates entry into the second century of man-made plastics by providing scientists with valuable ways to trial ABgene plates.
The ABgene Semi-Skirted MKII 96-well PCR Plate is a flat decked semi-skirted PCR plate that has raised alphanumeric grid referencing in black to make sample identification and plate orientation simple, and so minimizes errors.
Each well has a thin walled design for optimal and consistent heat transfer and is directly compatible with all major thermal cyclers and sequencers.
Reproducible sealing is now possible due to the flat deck of the plate and a raised rim around each well. The ABgene Semi-Skirted MKII 96-well PCR plate is also available with optional bar coding and in opaque white for QPCR applications.
The ABgene range combines design, high quality materials and clean room production to ensure reproducible, premium products that give confidence in results. Like all ABgene PCR plastic consumables, the ABgene Semi-Skirted MKII PCR Plate is manufactured from non-porous virgin (medical grade) polypropylene and is extensively quality tested to ensure a plate of certified free from DNase, RNase and endotoxin contamination.
