Unskirted 96-Well PCR Plates

Overview

High-Profile vs. Low-Profile

 

There are two common well heights for PCR tubes and plates:

  1. High-profile (full-height; around 20.7 mm) wells are “standard” and fit in most classical thermal cyclers and real-time PCR detection systems, such as Bio-Rad's iCycler®, iQ™ series real-time PCR detection systems, and Applied Biosystems' regular PCR systems and DNA sequencers.
  2. Low-profile (around 15.5 mm) wells are the newer design that reduces the potential for condensate formation and offers advantages for light capture in fluorescence assays, low-volume reactions, and fast PCR. They have been recommended for newer instruments such as Bio-Rad's C1000 Touch™ and S1000™ thermal cyclers, CFX series real-time PCR detection systems, and Applied Biosystems' fast PCR systems.

Instruments with adjustable lids can usually use both high-profile and low-profile wells. These instruments include Bio-Rad's 1000-series and DNA Engine® series thermal cyclers.

Unskirted PCR plates are compatible with many types of instruments and can be cut into pieces to match the number of samples in a run. Our unskirted PCR plates are compatible with Bio-Rad’s T100™, C1000 Touch™, and S1000™ Thermal Cyclers and all CFX series real-time PCR systems. Use the PCR Plastics Consumables Selector Tool to determine individual plate compatibility with other instruments.

Multiplate™ High-Profile and Low-Profile Unskirted 96-Well PCR Plates are made of polypropylene for low protein binding and are easily cut with scissors if less than a whole plate is needed.

Features and Benefits of Unskirted PCR Plates

  • Unskirted plates are available in both high and low profile permitting compatibility with all styles of cyclers and systems
  • Compatible with a wide variety of sealing systems
  • Plates are free of DNase, RNase, and human DNA
