    96 Well Semi-Skirted PCR Plate with Upstand, ABI Style

    Accurate, Sensitive and Consistent for Real Time PCR

    Standard profile, 0.2 ml wells, polypropylene, cut corner A12, working volume: <200 µl, total well capacity: 300 µl; designed for use on ABI® thermal cyclers.

    We recommend this semi-skirted plate for use with ABI® thermal cyclers and sequencers; it can be used directly with ABI® instruments with no adaptors and no recalibration of the instruments necessary. The only case where this is not true is with the ABI Fast Block thermal cyclers; in which case using our FrameStar® FastPlate is recommended instead – found here.

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

      96 Well Semi-Skirted PCR Plate, Roche Style

      Accurate, Sensitive and Consistent for Real Time PCR

      Low profile, 0.1 ml wells, polypropylene, cut corner H12, working volume: <100 µl, total well capacity: 200 µl; designed for use on Roche LightCycler 480®.

      This Roche Style plate is designed to achieve optimised assay conditions on the Roche LightCycler® 480.

      This particular style of plate is in a low profile 96-well format; perfect for reaction volumes of 10-100 µl. The wells are shorter than “standard” profile wells, which decrease the “dead space” between the heated lid of the thermal cycler and the sample in the well. This eliminates condensation forming on the side wall of the tubes, preventing reduction in PCR volume and increasing the efficiency of the reaction. This is especially recommended for reaction volumes below 20 µl.

              Make an Enquiry

              Designed to directly print text, linear barcodes, 2D codes and graphics on plastic laboratory tubes using patent pending Thermal Pixel Printing technology.

              The TubeMarker™ 2 allows printing directly onto the surface of plastic laboratory tubes between 6 mm – 30 mm in diameter.

              There is no need for using labels or marker pens. Marking is resistant to ethanol, isopropanol, water, DMSO*, liquid nitrogen and mechanical abrasion. The prints are also stable over a wide temperature range (-196 °C to 100 °C). Markings do not transfer when touching the tubes.

              Several lines of text can be printed, for example: sample name, sampling site, your name, date and time etc. All TrueType fonts available on the connected computer can be printed in a range of different sizes, which determines the maximum printable content. Bold and italic type is also available.

              The instrument can also print linear barcodes, datamatrix (2D) codes and graphic files (monochrome .bmp, .gif or .tiff) such as logos. Print orientation can be vertical or horizontal (except for barcodes which print vertically only).

              The TubeMarker™ 2 includes an Automatic Printing Delay feature, where the instrument is able to detect the presence of a tube and automatically prints the next label entry in the software. This feature makes printing to the tube surface much easier and faster than marking by hand.

                Principles

                The Thermal Test Film has a thermosensitive colour-forming layer plus a protective layer, both attached to the base material.

                Depending on the temperature applied to the film, a colour is produced in varying density and hue – giving a perfect image of heat distribution across the heating block of your heat sealer.

                The colour varies according to dwell time and temperature. The shorter the duration, the paler and more blueish the colour. The longer the duration, the more saturated and reddish the colour. Please refer to the colour chart below.

                 

                Note: This colour chart is just an example based on the results of the tests performed in our laboratories. Before using the Thermal Test Film, please create a similar chart that is based on your actual measurement conditions

                  Features

                  Real Time Display

                  The rapid heating element allows for a quick start up within minutes. The temperature is displayed in real time so that the heating up process can be monitored.

                   

                  Energy Saving Functions

                  When the unit is left idle it automatically switches to standby mode, during which the temperature of the heating element is reduced to 60 °C to save energy. When the sealer is left idle for longer periods it switches off automatically for added safety. The times at which the unit switches into standby and switch off modes can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs.

                   

                  Adapters and Sealing Aids

                  The 4s3™ employs a unique and cost saving adapter system. Deep well plates and most other skirted plates can be sealed on the standard plate carrier (4ti-0615, supplied with the unit). For all 96 well PCR plates an additional plate carrier (4ti-0625, optional extra) must be used. Both plate carriers can also be combined for easier handling of shallow well plates such as 384 well PCR plates.

                  For better sealing of those films which have a tendency to curl, 4titude® offer sealing aids. A weighted platen (4ti-0602) for use with deep well blocks can be ordered separately and a sealing frame for use with all other plate designs is supplied when ordering the optional 4ti-0625 adapter.

                  The sealer allows for sealing of Random Access Plates with the corresponding Random Access Heat Seals using the Random Access adapter (4ti-0613).

                   

                  RS-232 Port for Automation Integration

                  The 4s3™ has an RS-232 port to enable it to be integrated into most automated systems.

                   

                  Plate Formats

                  The following plate formats can be used with an appropriate holder:

                  SBS standard polypropylene and polystyrene plates and deep well blocks
                  PCR plates including skirted, semi-skirted and non-skirted formats
