Uniquely engineered light gray AlphaPlate™ microplates combine the best features of white microplates (excellent signal-to-background) and black microplates (decreased well-to-well crosstalk) for superior assay window and sensitivity in comparison to any other plate for luminescence assays. AlphaPlates are compatible with a variety of technologies for luminescence-based assays but are specifically designed for use with AlphaLISA® and AlphaScreen® technologies.
- Low-binding surface (LBS) – Modified polymer surface is nonionic hydrophilic, minimizing bio-interaction within wells to reduce nonspecific binding and reagent costs. Significantly reduces protein and nucleic acid binding to polymers and maintains enzyme activity. Use at temperature range of 4°-37°C (39°-99°F).
- High-binding surface (HB) – The polystyrene surface is treated to create high binding capacity for molecules with both hydrophilic and hydrophobic regions, such as proteins and IgG. Recommended for solid phase ELISA and other assays.
The 96-well ½ area AlphaPlate offers same well depth and spacing as a typical 96-well plate, at half the volume. Designed to help you miniaturize your assay, this plate offers cost reduction advantages without going to a 384-well format.
Our shallow-well AlphaPlate offers closer proximity to the analyzer's detector and is designed to miniaturize your assay to offer cost reduction advantages.
- Cases of 50 are packaged as 2 sleeves* of 25 plates.
- Cases of 200 are packaged as 8 sleeves* of 25 plates.
*Each sleeve contains 5 wraps with 5 plates.
