High optical-quality film bottom, black microplates are ideal for performing high content cell-based assays using imaging systems. The low base plate allows for unobstructed reading of all wells even when using high numerical aperture objectives. The film bottom provides a flat and optically clear surface that reduces autofocus time, increases throughput and is ideal for cell growth.
With an ultra-clear film, a 127 μm film thickness, and an unprecedented flatness (whole plate and intra-well), these microplates are ideal for high resolution cellular imaging applications. The microplate and film are manufactured from cyclic olefin copolymer (COC), which has excellent optical properties, chemical resistance, and mechanical stability.
- COC material allows for broad chemical resistance (including DMSO) and high mechanical stability.
- Ultra-clear film with 127 μm thickness is well suited for imaging micropscopy.
- Inter- and intra-well film bottom flatness within 50 μm and 10 μm, respectively, optimized for high content applications
- Low auto-fluorescence and birefringence
