Minimize plate evaporation and the risks associated with edge effect when using the uniquely engineered Thermo Scientific™ Nunc™ Edge 2.0 Plate in place of your standard 96-well plate. When filled with sterile water or media, the surrounding moat acts an evaporation buffer during extended incubation, yielding consistent, viable cells across the entire 96-well plate that in turn enhances productivity for cell-based assays. Enabling the use of all 96 wells allows researchers to plan experiments more efficiently, resulting in potentially less cost and related product waste.
The Edge 2.0 Plate provides an efficient and economical solution for preventing evaporation and in turn the risks associated with edge effect.
The surrounding built-in moat is divided into 4 sectional reservoirs, each can be filled with 1.7 to 2.0mL sterile water, buffer or media.
Replenish fluid in the reservoirs every 3 days in the humidified incubator to ensure the effectiveness of the evaporation barrier.
Nunclon™ Delta cell culture surface treatment of the wells promotes cell attachment and growth.
The non-treated surface is available for suspension cell culture or general solution-based assays
Use the Edge 2.0 Plate in conjunction with the Thermo Scientific™ Varioskan™ LUX multimode microplate reader. The filled moat of the plate functions as passive humidity control, allowing for simultaneous incubation and signal detection during long-term applications with living cells inside the plate reader.
