The Thermo Scientific 96-Well PCR, blue, semi-skirted, barcoded plates with clear wells, are the ultimate in high performance PCR plastics. Combining the rigidity of a polycarbonate frame with thin walled polypropylene wells, the Armadillo plate provides superior thermal cycling performance under all conditions without warping. These plates are designed for high-throughput, robotic PCR, and qPCR applications and feature a raised rim to improve seal integrity. They are available with both clear (BC2596[X]) and white (BC3596[X]) colored wells and with 128-industry standard barcoding.
• Optically clear skirt—Aids in visualization of liquids and improves stacking capabilities in automated handling systems • Raised rim design—Improved well surface area improves seal integrity in automated heat sealing • ANSI:SBS footprint—With rigidity of polycarbonate skirt, the ANSI footprint ensures complete compatibility with robotic systems for high throughput applications • Thermostable polycarbonate semi-skirted frame design—Warp-resistant thermal cycling and enhanced mechanical stability in robotic handling • Thin walled U-bottom wells—Optimal heat transfer and maximum sample recovery • Indented Alphanumeric Grid reference lettering—Integrated frame and well design for improved heat sealing • Available in both clear and white colored wells—Ensures the highest level of sensitivity for all PCR/qPCR reactions • Barcoding available—All plates can be provided barcoded to customer specifications for fully automated applications
Barcoding The barcodes are the industry standard code 128. The label itself can withstand temperatures from -196°C up to 120°C to ensure that the barcodes stay on the plate throughout your entire workflow. It also has a special coating to virtually eliminate any ‘rubbing off' of the code during handling. The dual barcodes are located on the opposite numeric and opposite alpha sides of the plate.
