The versatile, unskirted design and 48-well format make these Multiplate PCR plates ideal for laboratories using 48-well blocks on Bio-Rad C1000™/S1000™, MJ Mini™, and DNA Engine® thermal cyclers, the MiniOpticon™ real-time PCR detection system, and other instruments. They are designed for compatibility with a wide variety of sealing systems for oil-free cycling, and are suitable for reaction volumes of 5–125 µl. The polypropylene construction of Multiplate PCR plates confers very low protein binding and excellent retention of sample volume. When less than a full plate is needed, these plates can be easily cut with scissors to the required size. Two plate styles available:
- Full-height (20.70 mm) wells, natural color — designed to fit in most thermal cyclers
- Low-profile (15.50 mm) wells, natural or white — optimized for fast PCR and low-volume reactions
Bio-Rad PCR plates are process sampled and tested to be negative for DNase, RNase, and human DNA.
