The Hard-Shell 96-well 480 PCR plates kit contains 100 plates and 100 Microseal 'C' optical seals.
Microseal 'C' optical seals are optically clear adhesive films designed for optical assays, such as those performed in real-time PCR. They can be used for microplates with raised well rims.
- Films provide a tight seal for PCR and qPCR
- Pressure-sensitive adhesive sticks to the plate, not your gloves
- Free from DNase, RNase, and human DNA contaminants
Hard-Shell 96-well 480 PCR plates are optimized to work on the Roche LightCycler 480 real-time PCR system. Hard-Shell plates are specifically designed to withstand the stresses of heat sealing, thermal cycling, and robotic handling. The patented* two-component microplate design provides superior stability and flatness, allowing precise positioning for automation. The low-profile wells are optimized for low-volume reactions and fast PCR.
Key Features and Benefits
- Polycarbonate shell — prevents plate warping when thermal cycling in the Roche LightCycler 480
- Extremely uniform wells — reduce well-to-well variability in optical assays performed in real-time PCR
- Black lettering — facilitates well identification
- Rigid shell — ideal for heat sealing methods with instruments such as the PX1™ PCR plate sealer
- White-well option for increased fluorescent signal strength
- Bar-coded on row A side for convenient database tracking
- match ANSI/SBS standard dimensions
- Reaction volumes of 5–125 µl (200 µl maximum)
- Process sampling and testing to ensure that plates are free of DNase, RNase, and human DNA
Compatible PCR Instrument
- Roche LightCycler 480 real-time PCR system
