Porvair Sciences has expanded its range of high-quality, black microplates that minimize sample degradation by exposure to light, even over long storage periods. 

Available in a choice of 48-, 96- and 384-well formats – Porvair Sciences black plates are precisely manufactured to applicable ANSI / SLAS dimensions ensuring complete compatibility with almost all readers and automated equipment.   

Manufactured from polypropylene, the range of black microplates offers excellent heat and solvent resistant qualities. Using only ultra-pure grade polymer means that each black plate has near-zero leachates ensuring long-term sample integrity. Porvair Sciences black plates are supplied RNase / DNase free meaning they can be used to store even the most sensitive biological samples.   

To prevent evaporation, hydration of DMSO solutions and to completely eliminate light from samples - Porvair Sciences additionally offers a selection of Absorb Max light-blocking sealing films that may be applied to the top of the black plates. A split backing and edge cut-outs make positioning and applying the sealing film quick and simple. 

The light-blocking and absorbing properties of Porvair Sciences black microplates, used in conjunction with Absorb Max sealing films (P/N 229520), provides a perfect combination for protecting light-sensitive assays or samples during storage.
