Technical Drawing of 384 Well Skirted PCR Plate

Polypropylene, cut corner A24, working volume: <30 µl, total well capacity: 55 µl; designed for use on standard 384 well thermal cyclers

All of our PCR plates are moulded from virgin polypropylene under ISO certified cleanroom conditions, and as such comply with the same stringent requirements as our FrameStar® range.

Technical Specifications

Plate Length 127.76 ± 0.25 mm
Plate Width 85.48 ± 0.25 mm
Plate Height 10.30 ± 0.05 mm
Well Depth 9.20 ± 0.10 mm
Well Diameter 3.00 ± 0.10 mm
Distance to centre of A1 from top edge 8.99 ± 0.25 mm
Distance to centre of A1 from left edge 12.13 ± 0.25 mm
Pitch (distance between A1 and A2) 4.50 mm


Plate Features

  • Recommended for low volume PCR
  • Compatible with blocks designed for 384 well PCR plates
  • Ultra-smooth, uniform, thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR and real-time quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) results
  • Maximum thermal conductivity for efficient heat transfer and precise thermal cycling
  • Raised well rims prevent cross contamination and facilitate effective sealing for reduced evaporation
  • Super clear wells maximise sample visibility
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
  • Subject to a strict QC procedure which includes a visual check and leak testing of every tube
  • Free from DNase, RNase, human genomic DNA, and endotoxin/pyrogen
  • <30 µl working volume, 55 µl total well capacity when used with sealing options
  • Available as a frosted plate for increased qPCR signal intensities and improved detection sensitivity, and as a white plate for optimum signal-to-noise ratio when using fluorescent based assays
  • Available barcoded

Alternatively, our FrameStar® 2-component PCR plate range offers a plate with the same dimensions, but with the added benefits of a polycarbonate frame that eliminates plate distortion and warping during the PCR process, leading to less evaporation and sample loss. Take a look here »


This plate is available with linear Code 128-format barcodes to aid identification and traceability for your samples. To order your plates with barcodes, simply add /SBC to the end of the ordering code for Standard Single Barcoding, /DBC for Standard Double Barcoding, /TBC for Standard Triple Barcoding, or /QBC for Standard Quadruple Barcoding (see Barcoding for more details).

Sealing Options

Sealing Options

There are a number of sealing options available to this plate, depending on the application and desired outcome. We recommend the use of the 4s3™ Plate Support Adapter, PCR 384 (4ti-0618) if you seal your 384 well plates with our 4s3™ Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer.
