Hard-Shell® 96-Well PCR Plates, low profile, clear/white, barcoded #HSR9905



Pkg of 25, clear shell/white well PCR plate for Roche LightCycler 480 Real-Time PCR System, barcoded, rigid 2-component design



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
