Technical Drawing of 384 Well Skirted PCR Plate, Roche Style

White polypropylene, cut corners A24 and P24, working volume: <30 µl, total well capacity: 55 µl; designed for use on the Roche LightCycler® 480 with 384 well block

The dimensions of these plates are designed for optimum compatibility with the Roche LightCycler® 480, and are in a 384 well format for reaction volumes of up to 30 µl.

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.

Features

Plate Features

  • Recommended for low volume PCR
  • Compatible with Roche LightCycler® 480 with 384 well block
  • Ultra-smooth, uniform, thin-walled polypropylene tubes for optimum PCR and real-time (RT-qPCR) results
  • Made from white polypropylene for optimum signal-to-noise ratio when using fluorescent based assays
  • Maximum thermal conductivity for efficient heat transfer and precise thermal cycling
  • Raised well rims prevent cross contamination and facilitate effective sealing for reduced evaporation
  • Compatible with standard multichannel pipettes
  • Subject to a strict QC procedure which includes a visual check and leak testing of every tube
  • <30 µl working volume, 55 µl total well capacity when used with sealing options
  • 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 »

Barcoding

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).
