Hard-Shell 96-well 480 PCR plates are optimized to work on the Roche LightCycler 480 real-time PCR system. Hard-Shell plates are specifically designed to withstand the stresses of heat sealing, thermal cycling, and robotic handling. The patented* two-component microplate design provides superior stability and flatness, allowing precise positioning for automation. The low-profile wells are optimized for low-volume reactions and fast PCR.

Key Features and Benefits
•  Polycarbonate shell — prevents plate warping when thermal cycling in the Roche LightCycler 480
•  Extremely uniform wells — reduce well-to-well variability in optical assays performed in real-time PCR
•  Black lettering — facilitates well identification
•  Rigid shell — ideal for heat sealing methods with instruments such as the PX1™ PCR plate sealer

Additional Details
•  White-well option for increased fluorescent signal strength
•  Bar-coded on row A side for convenient database tracking
•  Footprint and well spacing match ANSI/SBS standard dimensions
•  Reaction volumes of 5–125 µl (200 µl maximum)
•  Process sampling and testing to ensure that plates are free of DNase, RNase, and human DNA

Compatible PCR Instrument
•  Roche LightCycler 480 real-time PCR system
