   Square Well 96 Well Plates

     
         
 

VP 416S And VP 416SA

     
         
 

96 square well plates, untreated(VP 416S) or amine treated(VP 416SA), SBS, polypropylene, square wells(7.5 mm by 7.5 mm, 8mm deep), flat bottom, 400 ul working volume. These plates allow large working volumes without increasing the height of the plate, 50/case. The untreated plates work with the magnetic bead extraction device, VP 407-AM-N. The amine coated plates are good for pin based liquid to dry surface spotting transfers.

 

 
         
 

VP 416S-1

     
         
 

96 square well plates, SBS, polypropylene, square wells(7.3 mm by 7.3 mm, 12.5mm deep), flat bottom, 700 ul working volume. These plates allow large working volumes with only a small increase in the height of the plate, 50/case. These plates work with the magnetic bead extraction device, VP 407-AM-N.

  Nalge Nunc's 384 Well Plate

     
 


VP 414 & VP 415

     
 


The 384 well plate has the same external dimensions as a standard 96 well plate. It comes complete with a lid for stable stacking and is radiation sterilized.  Four wells occupy the same space as one well in a standard 96 well plate.  The 384 well plate is designed to host bacterial cell growth.
 

Freezer and work space are optimized.  The maximum volume of each well is 124 l. Once the plate is arrayed, it may be replicated and stored in a mechanical freezer. Its standard size makes it ideal for use with automation. Center to center, each well is 4.5 mm which is a distance compatible with robotics and manual multi-channel pipettes.

A Multi-Use Tray With The Same Dimensions As A 96 Well plate

     
 


VP 413

     
 


The Omni Tray is basically a one well plate that has the same footprint as the 96 and 384 well microplates.  This standard foot print facilitates the registration of our MULTI-BLOT™ Replicators to the Omni Tray providing the ability to make multiple off set spots, blots or inoculations to the same Omni Tray.  Thus it possible to make high density arrays of up to 1536 colonies per Omni Tray.  The Omni Tray can also hold a membrane for dot blotting bacterial clones when screening DNA libraries.  Its standard size makes it ideal for use with automation in high volume laboratories.  The Omni Tray is compatible with most robotic systems.  The sturdy tray walls permit easy robotic manipulation.  The Omni Tray can be adapted for automated colony pickers.  The rectangular design makes geometric indexing possible.  It is also convenient for manual plating and screening.

 

 

 
 


The Omni Tray to the right has been inoculated with E. coli carrying a gene for red pigment from 16 different 96 well microplates using a VP 409 MULTI-BLOT™ Replicator and the high density COLONY COPIER™ VP 380D.  The agar in the Omni Tray was inoculated and incubated for 18 hours.  1536 distinct colonies can be seen on the plate.

VP 413A

     
 


When spotting onto membranes inside an Omni Tray, on occasion some customers experience issues with bowing well bottoms which can affect pin tool transfers when using a fixed pin replicator. The VP 413A Omni Tray Flattener was designed to solve this problem. Placing the VP 413A underneath an Omni Tray corrects this bowing issuing and ensures proper contact and consistent pin tool transfers in every tray. We also recommend placing a sheet of VP 540D- Lint Free Blotting Media Cut To Fit An Omni Tray underneath the membrane to further enhance contact and reduce the chance of digging into the membrane.

Pyrex baking dishes can also be useful around the lab for culturing bacteria on agar.  Many of our customers who use our Multi-Print system for inoculating membranes with micro-organisms will transfer and culture these membranes on agar surfaces in the Pyrex dishes.  Because of the much larger surface area, larger membranes can be accommodated. As a convenience to our customers, we offer these same dishes sold at many department stores and save you a trip to the mall.
