PCR plates come in many different types, sizes, and prices. Whether you need a small 96-well plate or a large three-84-well plate, MarathonLS PCR plates are a great choice. They are available in a wide range of colors and are compatible with most thermal cyclers. They can be used for a variety of PCR applications, including qPCR. Listed below are some of the advantages of using a PCR plate.
How to Choose Advantages of PCR Plates
PCR plates come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Non-skirted PCR plates are the simplest type of PCR plate. Fast and low-profile profiles are suited for most PCR instruments. A semi-skirted plate is made of plastic with a raised rim that allows it to be sealed with film securely. Full-skirted RNA/DNA PCR plates are made of glass with a raised rim that prevents evaporation. ANSI/SBS PCR plates are suitable for automated workflows.
The plastic used for PCR/qPCR plates is typically polypropylene. To ensure bio pcr compatibility, the material must be virgin polypropylene. Other materials, such as glass and metal, are suitable for qPCR. They should also have a non-porous, transparent bottom to prevent contaminants from accumulating on the bottom. These materials also have excellent temperature tolerance, making them ideal for robotics. These plastics also resist warping, which can hinder automated processes and interfere with downstream data collection.
