4titude® Vision Plate 384 - The Superior High-Throughput Assay Plates
| The Vision Plate 384 has been designed for high content screening (HCS) assays in drug development and related areas. The plates are ideal for applications such as Cell based assays, Fluorescence assays, Chemiluminescence assays and Colorimetric assays. This high quality optical bottom plate assures the necessary accuracy and consistency for automated high throughput systems, generating optimum signal to noise ratios. |
4titude´s Vision Plate 384 is assembled by using novel patented laser welding technology. In contrast, most competitors´ clear bottom microplates are assembled by either gluing a clear film to the frame portion of the plate or by heat welding the components together. Both of these techniques can cause problems with regards to cell growth and the subsequent microscopic or fluorometric analysis. 4titude also use a novel low pressure plasma process for treating the plastic surface which produces a consistent and stable surface. The treatment has been especially designed to improve cell adhesion under difficult conditions (e.g. reduced serum conditions). It is also useful for growing cells with low adhesion properties such as transfected cells overexpressing proteins.
The clear bottom component of the Vision Plate 384 demonstrates superior properties in terms of optical clarity (low absorbance and high transmission), low background fluorescence and consistency of material thickness. The latest extrusion technology is used for manufacturing an ultraclear base of 175 microns in thickness to provide optimum results with confocal microscopy and laser based detection systems. Variation across the plate is minimised so that the time needed for complex screening applications can be reduced dramatically.
The 4titude Vision 384 plates offer you improved cell adherence, they are Cyto-toxic free and the well design eliminates wicking and bubble formation. The plates fit most detection systems and conforms to SBS tolerances. They are also available with bar codes.
