All BIOplastics plates are absolutely flat which allows easy pipetting as well as easy positioning and removal from cyclers. Plates do not nest or stick together. This is appreciated by those who dislike putting time and effort into de-stacking plates as well
as those who require liquid handling automation without de-stacking failures. Some plates are cutable, some are breakable and most of them have 12 centered and 12 non-centered holes. This gives you the ability to color code a plate by clicking a BIOplastics grid to the plate holes. Plates are available in Low Profile (LP) and Regular Profile (RP) versions.
With a wide variety of (q)PCR cyclers on the market today, the type of disposables a cycler accepts, and additional requirements form customers, it can be difficult to accommodate these demands. BIOplastics offers solutions. For example: if a cycler only accepts plates and you do not like to work with plates then opt for one of the BIOplastics adaptor solutions which enables the use of single tubes and strips
in cyclers which normally only accept plates. Plates are available in different heights as well as with different skirts. Find below cross sections of different plates and comments:
These types of plates have the widest application range and can be easily cut. They fit most cyclers.
These types of plates have a semi skirt. Can be used in robotics and the skirt gives extra stability.
Some BIOplastics models can also be cut. Fits most cyclers but not as many as skirted plates.
These types of plates have a sub skirt. Can be used in robotics and the sub-skirt gives extra stability.
Fits mostly ABI cyclers and a few other cyclers
These types of plates have a full skirt. Can be used in robotics and the plate is stable.
Typically used in liquid handling procedures. Fits a limited number of cyclers
