Hard-Shell PCR plates represent an innovative concept in PCR plate design. The skirt and deck are molded from a rigid thermostable polymer. This hard shell prevents the distortion and shrinkage that may occur when regular single-component polypropylene PCR plates are exposed to the high temperatures of thermal cycling or heat sealing. Bio-Rad offers a variety of Hard-Shell 96-well and 384-well PCR plates.
Hard-Shell 96-Well PCR Plates
• Recommended ◊ Compatible
Hard-Shell 384-Well PCR Plates
48-, 96- and 384-well plates in low and high profile and various skirt formats are offered for PCR and real-time PCR. Find the best PCR plate for your instrument including Hard-Shell® PCR Plates for automation.
