Porvair Sciences Add Polypropylene Microplates for Sample Collection to Product Range

Porvair Sciences Ltd. has announced new additions to its selection of polypropylene microplates design optimised to provide a cost effective medium for sample collection or low temperature sample storage in a convenient 384-well format.

Available in three sizes (25µl, 125µl and 300µl well working volume) all Porvair 384-well storage / collection plates are manufactured to SBS/ANSI specifications. This standard footprint together with provision of handling lugs on the side skirt of the plate facilitates ready integration of the 384-well storage / collection plates with robotic handling systems. Significant sample handling productivity benefits are achievable as a result.

Manufactured from high purity polypropylene all Porvair 384-well sample storage / collection plates provide high solvent resistance minimising leachates and ensuring long-term sample integrity. Using a proprietary manufacturing technique Porvair's 384-well storage / collection plates offer market-leading flatness of only +/- 0.2mm. This tight tolerance assists secure plate sealing and significantly reduces mis-handling problems when used in automated environments.

Accommodating 384 alphanumerically labelled wells in a high precision microplate enables samples to be collected or stored and easily traced. Novel well bottom designs allow sipping probes to easily access and remove nearly all liquid contents. Built to economise freezer space, the 384-well sample storage / collection plates are stackable, have a raised well area to ensure leak proof sealing and may be stored for extended periods without deterioration in temperatures down to -80C.
