These 384-well polystyrene plates conform to standard microplate footprint and dimensions. Available in black or white. Round or flat-bottomed with square well top. Designed to reduce well-to-well crosstalk during fluorescent assays. Recommended working volume of up to 5 to 40µL. Without lids. Non-sterile. White walled plates enhance luminescent signals and have low background luminescence and fluorescence. Black wall plates have low background fluorescence, minimal light scatter and reduced crosstalk.
Not treated (or medium binding) polystyrene surface is hydrophobic in nature and binds biomolecules through passive interactions. Suitable primarily for the immobilization of large molecules, such as antibodies, that have large hydrophobic regions that can interact with the surface. Untreated microplates have a binding capacity of approximately 100 to 200ng IgG/cm2. Nonbinding (NBS™) surface is a Corning® proprietary treatment technology used on polystyrene microplates to create a nonionic hydrophilic surface (polyethylene oxide-like) that minimizes molecular interactions. Ideal for reducing protein and nucleic acid binding at low concentrations, and increasing assay signal to noise. High binding surface binds medium (>10kD) and large biomolecules that possess ionic groups and/or hydrophobic regions. Binding capacity is approximately 400 to 500ng IgG/cm2. Ideal for immunoassays.
