96-Well Plates

Each well in the microplate has a raised rim designed to reduce cross contamination and to provide a better fit to the corresponding raised ring in the lid. Lid use reduces excessive evaporative fluid loss. Bottom formats available include:

  • Flat (F) bottom – most commonly used
    • 0.37 mL well capacity
  • Conical (V) bottom – for microtiter use
    • 0.30 mL well capacity
  • Round (U) bottom – for good mixing
    • 0.32 mL well capacity
  • Chamfered (C) bottom – flat center with rounded corners to improve fluid recovery
    • 0.35 mL well capacity
  • Open (O) bottom - for membrane attachment

Sterile and treated 96-well plates are gamma irradiated and available in individual packaging.
