Product News: Contaminate-Free Microplates to be Manufactured in the US by Porvair

22 Feb 2019


Porvair Sciences has announced that its industry standard 96-well sample storage plate - the round bottom 1ml deep well microplate - is now available to be manufactured in the USA.

Produced from ultra-pure grade polypropylene, Porvair's round bottom 1ml deep well plates are certified as RNase / DNase free and contain no measurable contaminants that can leach out and contaminate your stored samples. In an independent study, despite the ready availability of high-quality polypropylene for deep well microplate production, more than half of the tested plates (not from Porvair) exhibited some form of contamination, typically due to extractable compounds leaching out of the plastic.

Precisely designed to ANSI/SLAS footprint dimensions, Porvair round bottom 1ml deep well microplates are fully compatible with automated sample handling systems. The plates cylindrical wells with round bottom ensures optimal mixing and recovery of sample.

Available in a range of different colors, Porvair round bottom 1ml deep well microplates are easy to identifiy when retrieving from storage. A black version of this plate is available for storing light sensitive compounds. The standard rimmed version of the plate incorporates features that eliminate well-to-well cross contamination and enable a high integrity heat seal. For applications requiring insertion of vials a non-rimmed version of the round bottom 1ml deep well microplate is available.
