The MicroClime® environmental lid incorporates a novel, ﬂuid-absorbing matrix that minimizes edge effects and preserves the concentrations of solutions in microplate wells. The absorbed ﬂuid creates a vapor barrier that protects the sample from the exterior environment and from evaporation, greatly reducing edge effects. The MicroClime lids also eliminate edge effects which might occur due to long-term cell incubation, such as overnight cell culture (e.g. Molecular Devices CellKey® 96 and 384 protocol). MicroClime environmental lids protect the contents of a wide variety of SBS standard microplates.
Features of the MicroClime:
Eliminate microplate edge effects
Increase microplate efﬁciency by up to 20%
