The Deepwell and 384 Well Plates were developed for a multitude of applications in the research laboratory. Foremost amongst these included :
- Robotic and Liquid handlers for high throughput screening
- Archiving of samples for long-term storage.
- Solid Phase Extraction.
- Drug Discovery
- To keep abreast of changing demands, they are now available with wells of 0.5ml, 1ml and 2ml capacities.
384 well plates are manufactured in clear polystyrene for optical clarity and white and black versions are available for use in luminescence and fluorescence assays. Polypropylene versions are available in 65µl, 120µl, 200µl, 400µl and in a thin wall version for PCR work.
