Hard-Shell® 96-Well PCR Plates, low profile, thin wall, skirted, black/clear #HSP9661



Pkg of 50, black shell/clear well PCR plate for higher fluorescent signals, rigid 2-component design



Use these Hard-Shell Plates for reliable performance in all PCR and real-time PCR applications. The patented two-component design is specifically engineered to withstand the stresses of thermal cycling.

Additional benefits include:

  • Superior stability and flatness allow precise positioning and robotic handling
  • Sturdy plate design is ideal for heat sealing methods
  • Warp-resistant feature provides durability during automation, high-speed centrifugation, and storage (even at –80°C) 
  • User-readable bar code options for convenient sample tracking in high-throughput settings
  • White alphanumeric labeling for easy well identification
  • Footprint and well spacing designed to match ANSI/SBS standard dimensions
  • Composition helps prevent DNA binding
  • Polypropylene resin allows superior well-to-well uniformity for reliable and reproducible real-time qPCR results
  • Certified to be free of DNase, RNase, and human genomic DNA
  • Maximum volume is up to 200 µl

Available Formats

Color-coded shell options with clear wells — available in white (HSP-9601), red (HSP-9611), yellow (HSP-9621), blue (HSP-9631), and green (HSP-9641) shells
