Thermo Scientific cell culture plates

Promote healthy, reproducible cell growth with a wide range of quality cell culture plates

Choose from a wide range of styles, sizes, and surfaces to suit a variety of cell culture applications. Thermo Scientific Nunc cell culture plates and well plates are available in more than 100 combinations of format and surface, designed to help promote healthy cells and reproducible results. Lot- to-lot cell line testing helps to ensure consistency.

Solid plates are fully molded well plates in either clear polystyrene, or in black or white for use in fluorescence or luminescence studies.

While our clear plates have excellent imaging properties for magnification up to 40x, our optical bottom plates with thin polystyrene film or coverglass bottoms are engineered for superior imaging properties to provide low autofluorescence, absence of a halo effect, improved optical clarity, and high signal-to-noise ratios.


Find your cell culture plate by surface

To help ensure optimal results for different types of cell culture and the subsequent cellular analysis, we offer a range of cell culture plates spanning a variety of surfaces, well-bottom shapes and colors. Let us help guide your selection by starting with the cell culture surfaces modified to suit the needs of your specific cell types.

A standard tissue culture (TC) surface modification that makes the polystyrene surface more hydrophilic, thus facilitating maximum adhesion for a broad range of cell types.High quality, optically clear virgin polystyrene with hydrophobic surface, ideal for suspension cell culture, also useful for a variety of biochemical binding assays.Unique energy-treated surface that when combined with conditioned media supplemented with a ROCK inhibitor, can support attachment and expansion of human pluripotent stem cells.Enables formation of reproducible spheroid cultures. Cells grow and aggregate with virtually no cell attachment to the culture vessel. For spheroid culture, organoid culture, and 3D culture.Enables harvesting of cells in single cell suspension or as contiguous cell sheet by temperature reduction and can create 3D tissue models without foreign-to-the-body scaffold materialECM-coated surface mimicking the growth environment inside the body, ideal for cells that have difficulties growing on the regular tissue culture surface. Collagen I is of animal origin, whereas PDL is fully synthetic.

The Reinvented Nunc Edge 2.0 96-Well Plate

Take your cell-based assays to the edge

We reinvented the 96-well plate so you can reclaim full use of all 96 wells. In order to mitigate damage caused by evaporation, notably among the highly vulnerable perimeter wells, researchers typically leave the outer wells in a standard 96-well plate empty, ultimately sacrificing 37.5% of each plate. With the Thermo Scientific Nunc Edge 2.0 plate this work-around strategy is no longer necessary.
