Nunc Edge 96-well cell culture plate

Take your cell-based research to the edge

Thermo Scientific Nunc Edge 2.0 96-Well Cell Culture Plates contain a large evaporation moat that can be filled with sterile water or media to virtually eliminate edge effect, and increase consistency and cell viability following lengthy incubations.

Prevent evaporation in 3 simple steps:

Utilize all 96 wells.

Fill surrounding moat with 2mL
sterile water or media in each section.

Evaporation takes place in the moat and not the outer wells, preserving cell viability and maintaining well-to-well consistency.

The Edge difference: Edge 2.0 plates vs. traditional 96-well plates

Unlike traditional 96-well plates, Edge 2.0 plates are optimized to mitigate the dreaded edge effect. Edge effect is caused when evaporation occurs in the perimeter wells of a microplate during prolonged incubation. It changes media pH, osmolality, and the concentration of the media constituents—affecting cell viability and function.

Cell viability with Nunc Edge vs Traditional 96-well cell culture plate

The built-in moat in the Nunc Edge 2.0 Plate significantly reduces evaporation compared to the conventional 96-well plates after 4-day incubation, improving well-to-well consistency.

 Sustainable solutions

Thermo Scientific Nunc Edge 2.0 96-Well Plates generate 4–9% less plastic waste per plate.
