Porvair Sciences has announced a black microplate and seal combination that eliminates sample degradation by exposure to light, even over long-term storage periods.
Manufactured from polypropylene, Porvair’s black 96-deep well microplate offers excellent heat and solvent resistant qualities. Using only ultra-pure grade polymer means that each black plate has near zero leachates ensuring long-term sample integrity. Porvair black plates are supplied RNase / DNase free meaning they can be used with even the most sensitive biological samples. Offering a sample volume of 1mL per well with round well bottoms for good mixing – Porvair black plates are precisely manufactured to applicable ANSI / SBS dimensions ensuring complete compatibility with almost all readers and automated equipment.
Available from Porvair Sciences – AbsorbMax sealing films are 200 µm thick black vinyl adhesive sealing films for use with 96-well black microplates. A split backing aids in applying the sealing film properly. Edge cut outs assist in positioning and accomodate ribs on the plate bottom. The light-blocking and absorbing properties of AbsorbMax sealing films make them ideal, in combination with Porvair black 96-well plates, for protecting light-sensitive assays or samples during storage.
