Low Binding Products
The information below details the different varieties of microplates we offer, and will help you choose which type of plate will best suit your needs, based on plate material, shape, base, and colour:
Polypropylene - has very low biomolecular binding characteristics, a high temperature tolerance and resistance to many standard laboratory chemicals, including DMSO. It is mainly used for storage applications. Our Storage Plate Range is made from polypropylene.
Polystyrene - a hard material with optical clarity. It is used for cell culture, fluorescence, luminescence, ELISA, and homogeneous assays. Our Vision Plates™ and other assay plates are made from polystyrene.
Round Wells - are suitable for most applications as they reduce droplet effects and wicking.
Square Wells - ensure the best use of space and improve sample mixing, particularly when used for bacterial growth.
Rounded Square Wells - ensure the best use of space and improve sample mixing, suitable for small volumes.
Flat Bottoms - are most suitable for optical imaging and cell culture application.
U-Bottoms - are best for washing, mixing and pelleting, and give a high surface area.
Conical V-Bottoms - are best for precipitation, centrifugation, and small volume recovery.
Pyramid Flat Bottoms - unique shape of the well bottom with a very flat central part, designed for imaging and cell culture applications.
Black clear bottom plates - suitable for bottom reading instruments and microscopy applications. Our Vision Plates™ and UltraVision™ Plates have clear bottoms.
Black solid base plates - recommended for top reading fluorescent instrumentation because of their low background and minimised light scattering. Click here for black plates.
White solid base plates - give the best results for luminescence detection because they maximise signal intensity. Click here for white plates.
Clear plates - offer the best solution for absorption, ELISA, spectophrotometric and storage applications. We offer both clear Storage Plates and Assay Plates.
Vision Plates™ from 4titude® are designed for cell-based content screening with improved cell adherence and optimum signal to noise ratio.

4titude® Black Plates with solid bottom offer the best solution for flourescence, luminescence and scintillation applications
These white solid bottom assay plates have been specifically designed for luminescence applications such as Luciferase Reporter Assays, thanks to the white colour maximising signal intensity
4titude®'s clear well assay microplates are ideal for colorimetric assays, ELISA, and sample storage due to the clear polystyrene frames giving superior optical clarity.
Our Storage Plates are designed for the collection and preservation of samples used in cell biology research, molecular biology research and drug discovery
UltraVision™ Plates feature an optically ultra-clear base, which gives superior results by delivering low absorbance and high transmission, together with low background signals.
Microplate lids to quickly and easily protect samples from contamination and evaporation
4titude® offers certain processing options. Barcoding is possible on all skirted plates (PCR, storage, deep well, vision and assay plates) and sterilisation is possible for all products (including seals, rolls, plates etc.), but surcharge and MOQ may apply for both.
