Porvair Sciences supply a range of specifically designed assay plates. Their range includes clear polystyrene bottom, glass-bottom and solid bottom assay plates that are designed explicitly for absorbance, fluorescence, luminescence and scintillation applications.
Interestingly, Porvair’s krystal series of clear bottom plates are now recognised as industry-leading tools for Pharma drug discovery and screening. The standard clear polystyrene bottom plates have bases 0.4mm thick and are moulded from highly polished tools to reduce flow lines, artefacts and scratches, guaranteeing good results with all types of bottom-reading instruments.
If you have more modern demanding confocal readers, Porvair Glass Bottom plates have been shown by leading research institutes to be unsurpassed for flatness, linearity and optical clarity. Their sparkling pure borosilicate glass is 175µm thick with a flatness tolerance across the plate of +/- 15µm, ensuring superb crisp images every time.
With regards to the solid clear filtration plates, Porvair Sciences offer a variety of 96-well filtration plates which are affordable and of high quality. Then you have the solid bottom range of assay plates, and Porvair Sciences range of 96- and 384- well assay plates are designed explicitly for absorbance and many other applications.
There are also the Krystal clear bottom opaque sides, the Porvair Sciences range of clear bottom 24-, 96-, and 384- well Krystal plates are optimised for fluorescence and luminescence. As well as the Krystal UV transparent, Porvair Sciences has introduced a very high specification range of COP bottomed, UV-transparent microplates, which are available in 96- and 384-well. The Krystal UV solid quartz and this microplate range from Porvair Sciences is available in black and clear.
The filtration plates 48-well are used in a straightforward form to remove particulate matter from liquid. So, either the particulate matter or the filtrate is needed for further study. As mentioned, Porvair Sciences has a wide range of filtration plates to suit most filtration applications, including the range of 48-well microplates.
Porvair Sciences state that ‘plate-based assays are also commonly used in experimental biology when examining the state of a cell after it’s been subjected to manipulation or experimental treatment.’ Therefore, these crucial assays are performed in assay plates explicitly designed to aid the physical, biological and chemical analysis of cell samples.
Then they are employed in a variety of applications ranging from drug discovery and research to bioassay validation, manufacturing and quality control, plate-based assays are a popular tool in academic and research organisations as well as the fields of biotechnology and pharmaceuticals.
According to Porvair Sciences, the majority of plate-based assays are conducted using ‘sterile cell culture microplates.’ This includes the popular 96 well assay plate and the versatile glass-bottom assay plate.
There is no doubt that Porvair Sciences has high quality and a superior range of assay plates in supply, from the 96-well filtration plates to the 48-well filtration plates, there is one to suit your research project.
