A large number of companies and research institutions around the world have worked tirelessly to perfect the art of PCR by developing products that seek to optimise PCR protocols for greater efficiency. Much focus has been placed on optimising variables such as template DNA, reaction mix (buffer, dNTPs, Taq polymerase), primers, probes and even thermocyclers.
Most researchers fail to realise the impact of inferior plastics on the reproducibility of their PCR protocols. CAPP, through its Expell range, is growing to become a leading supplier of the best plastic consumables (96 well PCR plates, strips or tubes) that ensure consistent, reproducible and overall high-quality PCR results.
CAPP is happy to announce the Expell 96 well PCR plates – new additions to our ever-growing product portfolio. We have invested a lot of research into perfecting our PCR consumables to help scientists and academics achieve the best results in their PCR. Our current product offerings in the Expell range include single PCR tubes and 8-tube strips in diverse configurations for the widest variety of application. The newly added 96 well PCR plates come in white (semi-skirted), frosted (sub-skirted), and clear (fully skirted) styles designed to work with the most popular thermocyclers and PCR protocols.
Expell 96 well PCR Plates – Unique Advantages
Our new Expell 96 well PCR plates, along with all products in our portfolio, have many unique selling points that would make them ideal for use in your PCR protocol.
Obtain Reproducible Results with Expell 96 well PCR Plates
CAPP PCR products are manufactured from a standardised and unique blend of polypropylene. We guarantee that all Expell PCR consumables across our diverse product lines, are made of the same high-quality polypropylene and this is a promise that is hardly matched by the competition. The manufacturing process assures customers of reproducible results across all products in our portfolio.
Expell 96 well PCR Plates ensure Thermal Stability
CAPP’s unique blend of polypropylene is engineered to have a great heat tolerance and will not crack during the rapid temperature variations of PCR cycles. This makes the Expell range a great choice for quality focused scientists. As an additional advantage, our new 96 well PCR plates are fully autoclavable.
Great fluorescence detection with Expell 96 well PCR Plates
Expell 96 well PCR plates are tailored for qPCR applications, coming in white and frosted varieties for maximum signal detection. Our white 96 well PCR plates are engineered to give customers the highest sensitivity by minimising refraction of the fluorescent signal and maximising reflection towards the detector. The frosted Expell 96 well PCR plates would be the preferred choice in situations where the increased reflection of white plates may result in an oversaturated signal.
Compatibility of Expell 96 well PCR Plates
CAPP takes great pride in offering products that are compatible with the most popular PCR instrumentation. It is no surprise that the new Expell 96 well PCR plates are designed to work with all the best thermocyclers that are available on the market (contact us to check compatibility).
Expell 96 well PCR Plates are Contamination Free
Expell PCR consumables are manufactured and packaged free of contaminating nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), nucleases (DNAses and RNAses) and endotoxins (Pyrogens) ensuring the best results from your PCR runs. Our production facilities are held to the highest quality standards to ensure you get the best 96 well PCR plates on the market.
Overview of the New 96 well PCR Plates
Expell white, semi-skirted, low profile 96 well PCR plates (5100314C)
The white Expell 96 well PCR plates (5100314C) have a 0.1mL volume that is ideal for qPCR applications. The white colour offers superior signal reflection over clear plates by reflecting more fluorescent signal toward the detector. This product is semi-skirted for additional robustness. These 96 well PCR plates are ideally suited for the Roche LightCycler 480 and COBAS Z 480. The standard package contains 8 x 25 pieces.
Expell frosted, sub-skirted, low profile 96 well PCR plates (5100315C)
The frosted Expell 96 well PCR plates (5100315C) are tailored for ABI fast cyclers. The well volume (0.1mL) ensures a perfect fit on the thermocycler block. The plates are sub-skirted for additional rigidity and frosted to minimise the fluorescent signal oversaturation that may be experienced with white plates. The package comes standard with 8 x 25 pieces.
Expell frosted, sub-skirted, regular profile 96 well PCR plates (5100214C)
For non-fast PCR amplification, we have introduced the frosted Expell 96 well PCR plate (5100214C). This product is ideally suited for ABI thermocyclers with a sub-skirted design and a regular profile (0.2mL). These plates are not ideal for use with fast cyclers, and for such applications we recommend that you consider our other 96 well PCR plate offerings (5100314C and 5100315C). Standard packs contain 8 x 25 pieces.
Expell clear, fully skirted 96 well PCR plates (5100216C)
Last, but certainly not least, the clear Expell 96 well PCR plates (5100216C) come in both regular and low profiles (0.1/0.2mL) for a greater range of application. These plates are fully skirted and automation-ready, allowing for seamless integration with a workflow involving robotics. As with all our new 96 well PCR plates, the standard package contains 8 x 25 pieces.
Application scope of Expell 96 well PCR Plates
Our brand new Expell 96 well PCR plates range offers wide variety to keep you in control of your PCR and qPCR protocols. You can comfortably tackle all your PCR tasks with peace of mind, knowing that CAPP has your back. The new 96 well PCR plates would be ideal for various use cases including:
• Standard PCR with large sample volumes for detection and routine amplification of DNA fragments for sequencing
• High throughput gene expression studies requiring accurate, real time detection of PCR products with qPCR
• Population wide mutation analysis assays
• Regulatory validation of food samples for verifying authenticity
• Analysis of food samples for detecting adulteration or contamination
• Quantification of DNA amplicons in paternity testing and other forensic applications
Summing up Expell 96 well PCR Plates
At CAPP we believe in keeping our customers in control of their experimental protocols. Our new 96 well PCR plates represent this belief and we are one step towards fulfilment of our vision of providing innovative, user-friendly, global standard, premium liquid handling equipment.
