Thermo black and white microplates help you to optimize your assay performance in fluorescent applications. These microplates are designed for use with light emitting markers, having carefully selected pigments to eliminate cross talk and reduce background signals of your assays. Different binding characteristics and formats are available.
Microtiter Microfluor microplates and universal/enhanced binding plates are designed specifically for fluorescence applications and are available with either black or white pigmentation.
Black microplates for reduced background
Black microplates have reduced background signal to improve assay sensitivity with minimized cross talk while avoiding light piping between wells. They are available in high and medium binding configurations.
Microfluor 1 Black is a fluorescence vessel that offers low background.
Microfluor 2 Black is an irradiated plate that provides higher binding and minimal background fluorescence.
Black Universal Binding is a fluorescence vessel that offers low background.
Black Enhanced Binding plate is an irradiated plate that provides higher binding and minimal background fluorescence.
White microplates for enhanced reflectivity
White microplates have higher reflectivity to enhance signal and thus sensitivity, while improving signal to noise ratios, increasing the dynamic range and minimizing cross talk. White plates are available in high and medium binding configurations.
Microfluor 1 White is a vessel that offers high signal reflectance and reduced background fluorescence.
Microfluor 2 White is an irradiated microplate for assays that require higher binding and reduced background for fluorescence assays in the ultraviolet range.
White Universal Binding vessel offers high signal reflectance and reduced background fluorescence.
White Enhanced Binding is an irradiated plate for assays that require higher binding and reduced background for fluorescence assays in the ultraviolet range.
Flexible microplate formats
Thermo Microfluor and enhanced/universal binding products are available in 96-well and strip microplate format. The 96-well microplates have raised wells to avoid cross contamination. Microfluor and enhanced/universal binding strips can be provided assembled or separately in 1x8 or 1x12 solid strip format. The 1x8 break-apart wells have a unique well locking system that keeps the wells and your samples securely in place.
