Hard-Shell® 96-Well PCR Plates, high profile, semi skirted, clear/clear, barcoded #HSS9901



Pkg of 25, clear shell/clear well 3-side (Row H, Column 1, and Column 12) barcoded PCR plate to fit most instruments, rigid 2-component design



Hard-Shell 96-Well Semi-Skirted PCR Plates are specifically designed to withstand the stresses of thermal cycling and robotic handling. The patented* two-component design provides superior stability and flatness, allowing precise positioning for automation. The full-height (20.75 mm) wells fit most thermal cyclers, real-time PCR detection systems, and DNA sequencers.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Reaction volumes of 5–125 µl (350 µl maximum)
  • Extremely uniform wells reduce well-to-well variability in optical assays, such as those used in real-time PCR
  • Warp-free half-height skirt for improved robotic handling and labeling surface
  • Black lettering for easy well identification
  • Process sampling and testing to ensure plates are free of DNase, RNase, and human DNA


  • White-well option for increased fluorescent signal strength
  • Color-coded skirt option with clear wells
  • Low-cost, user-readable bar code option for convenient database tracking
