Quality of PCR plastics matters — plate uniformity minimizes data variability, and white well options maximize real-time PCR detection sensitivity. Our plastic consumables are precisely manufactured for optimal fit and cycling performance and are certified to be free of DNase, RNase, and human genomic DNA. Using high quality PCR plastics from Bio-Rad helps provide confidence in your PCR, qPCR and next generation sequencing research.
PCR Plastics and Consumables
Individual 0.2 ml and 0.5 ml PCR tubes, 0.2 ml tube strips, and cap strips with domed or optical flat tops
Adhesive or heat-sealing PCR plate seals in plastic or foil, including pierceable, peelable, and reusable options
A selection of handy tools, racks, and other accessories for PCR plate and tube sealing, handling, and storage
Hard-Shell PCR Plates
Hard-Shell PCR Plates are engineered to withstand the stresses of heat sealing, thermal cycling, and robotic handling, featuring a patented two-component design* for superior stability and flatness.
Microseal ‘B’ PCR Plate Seals
This optical sealing film features a strong adhesive that's effective from from –40 to 110°C, providing secure plate sealing during cycling and sample storage.
