Thermo Scientific Armadillo PCR plates combine polypropylene wells in a polycarbonate frame. While the thin-walled polypropylene wells allow for optimal heat transfer to the reaction mixture, the polycarbonate frame helps to ensure rigidity and prevent warping. In addition to rigidity, Armadillo plates have numerous other features favorable in automated workflows, including a highly polished, optically clear skirt for better stacking and visual calibration, alphanumeric lettering, raised rim well design for tight plate sealing, and standard or custom barcoding options for easy plate tracking. Multiple 96-well and 384-well plate formats with standard footprints are available for broad instrument compatibility, including skirted and semi-skirted standard or low-profile formats. All Armadillo plates are available in a variety of frame colors with either clear wells for PCR or white wells to enable superior qPCR results.
