PCR Plastic Consumables

Featured ArticleEssential PCR Plate Guide

Tips, tricks and best practices to guide your buying decision.

Five things to consider

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.
