Polypropylene (PP) is advantageous for incubation and sample storage because of its high resilience to chemicals and temperature, particularly thermos cycling. It is also possible to use different sealing options with Polypropylene (PP).
Polystyrene (PS) is used for most optical detection Microplates. Polycarbonate (PC) is inexpensive, however Polypropylene (PP) is generally used for disposable Microplates for PCR (polymerase chain reaction). A method of DNA amplification, Cyclo olefin copolymers (COC) are now being used to transmit UV light.
Different sizes and types of plate bases, coupled with the correct selection of purity of plastic grades, including ‘low binding’ variants, influence the type of application and ultimately, the seal that will be achieved.
