4Titude 4TI-0720 FrameStar 96 Well PCR Plates - non skirted - low profile
FrameStar® PCR plates have a two-component design, which combines the advantages of thin wall polypropylene tubes, for optimum PCR results and a rigid polycarbonate skirt and deck, for highest thermal stability and rigidty. In contrast to standard one-piece PCR plates, evaporation from corner positions and outer rows of wells is minimal, which allows for downscaling of reagent volumes and therefore saves costs.

This low-profile PCR plate has shorter wells than the standard profile plate (4ti-0710), decreasing the "dead space" between the heated lid of the thermal cycler and the sample. This eliminates condensation on the side wall of the tube, preventing reduction in PCR volume and increasing the efficiency of the reaction. Low profile products are especially recommended for use with reaction volumes below 20µl. The polycarbonate frame, within the 2-component design, reduces thermal expansion during PCR, ensuring the seal integrity remains intact, even at elevated temperatures.
