Microplates for More Precise Analytical Researching

The microplates, known as microtiter plates, are flat plates with multiple wells [cavities]. They come in a 6, 12,24,48 well format, among which 96 well PCR plate layouts are commonly used on a larger scale. Microplate is used in clinical laboratory to hold small amounts of samples or reagents. The pathologists use the microplates by adding the reagents or the samples into the wells, which are then let to grow, and then analysis of the reaction is observed. 

Depending on the cavity size, the microplates can hold the microliter volume of samples. Besides the number of wells in a microplate, they are available in different materials like polymers, polystyrene (PS), polypropylene (PP), COP, and COC colors and shapes. It helps prepare, handle, and examine multiple samples simultaneously. It has become a standard tool in analytical research and clinical laboratories.

What is a 96-well PCR plate?

A 96-well PCR plate is a type of laboratory glassware and plasticware microplate that is crafted for PCR experiments, which stands for polymerase chain reaction. The plate contains 96 individual wells, which are then arranged in an eight by 12 grid, with each well of 0.2 to 0.3 millimeters (about 0.01 in) volume capacity. These plates are made from materials like polypropylene, which are capable of withstanding high temperatures. The wells of the microplate are thermally stable, which lets them take the repeated heating and cooling cycles, which is essential for PCR amplification. 

The 96-well PCR plate is used in molecular biology laboratories for DNA amplification, genotyping, and gene expression analysis. The 96-well PCR plate is available in plenty of assorted colors. 

Different Types of Microplates

Each of the microplates below serves a diverse role in the clinical laboratory, which offers pathologists more flexibility to conduct a wide range of experiments simultaneously.

1. Flat Bottom Microplate

These are the most common types of wells which have a flat bottom. They are suitable for ELISA, cell culture, and drug screening. A flat bottom provides a stable surface to the cells and the reagents to ensure a consistent and reliable result. 

2. U Bottom Microplate

This plate has a U-shaped bottom, which pathologists use for cell culture and harvesting. Pathologists, as well as cell biologists, often use these microplates for cell recovery. 

3. PCR Microplates

It is designed to amplify DNA or RNA samples. The material used in the PCR microplate is compatible with thermal cycling. These plates are made from high-quality materials that can withstand high temperatures, which are necessary for PCR.
