Precision engineered Krystalâ„¢ glass bottom plates from Porvair Sciences are manufactured using a polystyrene upper and a borosilicate glass sheet fixed to the base with a biocompatible adhesive. This proprietary process results in consistent flatness (+/- 15 microns) across the base, excellent light transmission and a flat optical plane for growing cells.
Available in a choice of 24-, 96- and 384-well formats - Krystal glass bottom plates combine the advantageous optical properties of glass, low background and low birefringence, with the versatility of a microplate. Krystal glass bottom plates are proven to demonstrate higher performance than standard polystyrene plates for fluorescence assays, luminescence detection, scintillation counting and high-resolution microscopy using confocal imaging.
The complete range of glass bottom microplates is available sterilised for tissue culture to optimise cell growth or non-sterile for assay development. The high clarity bottom of each plate in the range offers the advantage of easy and exact positioning when used in combination with microscopes. Based upon a standard SBS / ANSI microplate format - Krystal glass bottom plates are fully compatible with automated liquid handling and robotic devices. All plates are supplied lidded.
