Contamination-Free Sample Storage from Porvair
17 February 2016

Deep well polypropylene microplates are commonly used for sample storage in life science laboratories. An essential aspect of the manufacture of these plates is the selection of clean raw materials for injection molding. Polypropylene is an inert and heat resistant material, ideal for sample storage. However, all grades of polypropylene are not the same, for example, Injection molding grades of polypropylene often have high concentrations of chemicals to aid the molding process. This application note demonstrates the quality and consistency of microplates from Porvair.
