Composition and Application of Deep Well Microplates

The manufacturing and composition of deep well microplates


The most common manufacturing processes for polystyrene, propylene, and cyclic olefin are injection molding. For softer plastics such as polycarbonate, volume molding is the preferred method. Composite plates or composite plates are filter plates, advanced PCR plates, and SPE plates. In such plates, the use of multiple components provides the best product. Each component is first molded separately and then connected to the components of different components to obtain the final result.


The most commonly used material for deep well microplates is polystyrene. There are various color choices, including white, black, and transparent. The correct color of the deep well microplate must be selected for specific testing. For luminescence and absorbance testing, the preferred choice is a white deep well microplate. On the other hand, black deep well microplates are more suitable for fluorescent bio-detection. The optical properties of transparent boards are very effective and can also be used for cell culture and storage.


Polystyrene provides the ideal physical properties for deep well microplates. It can withstand different temperatures applied in various laboratory environments. The material can handle low temperatures up to -112°F and changes in heat in thermal cycles. They can store compounds for a long time without affecting their composition and can thus be used for storage. Other types of materials are also used in the construction of deep well microplates, including polycarbonate, glass, quartz, and cyclic olefin (propylene). However, polystyrene is the most common.


Applications of deep well microplates


Deep well microplates make diagnostic tests and DNA sequencing very feasible. Recently, the outbreak of COVID-19 has increased awareness of PCR plates. Rapid PCR test results help accelerate the diagnosis process. The use of deep well microplates is widespread across scientific fields. They can be used in virology, serology, microbiology, drug discovery, and other life sciences. The use and application of plates are also simple. Laboratories worldwide have this cost-effective tool, which makes various laboratory procedures possible. This useful tool saves researchers and labs time and money.


In short, the plate completely changes laboratory testing. It is basically a tray that contains several holes for storing samples or extracts. They are usually manufactured in a 2:3 rectangular mixture and contain 96, 384, or 1536 holes. However, other less common configurations can also be used.
