Thin Wall Thermal Cycler Plates are thin walled and designed for rapid thermal transfer. Similar to the T323 Series, skirted 96-well PCR plates have a skirt around the plate that provides a bar coding and labeling area, unavailable in other types of plates. Plates are precision-molded to ensure well-to-well and plate-to-plate uniformity. They are impermeable to water vapor. To facilitate orientation, the bottom right corner of the plate is cut away. Flexible plate allows the tubes to fit better in the thermal block. Polypropylene plates are easily cut into sections of 24, 32, or 48 tubes.
All sealing methods can be used for oil-free operation: domed and flat cap strips (T321 Series), SecureSeal™ Thermal sealing film and foil (T329), and Amplate™ Mat (T329-10 Series). They are suitable to be used with all 96-well shaped cyclers such as Er icomp Twinblock, Perkin-Elmer 9600 and Mj Research 100/200 96V.
An alphanumeric grid helps sample identification. To facilitate orientation, the top left corner of the plate is cut away. The AMPLATE™ is easy to seal since no cylindrical walls extend above the plate. More economical than using single tubes, it is available colorless and in four different colors. The Simport AMPLATE™ can also be handled by robotic handling equipment and is ideal with automated pipetting systems. They are autoclavable and packed in tamperproof resealable bags of 10 plates.
