Most plastics manufacturers take a one-size-fits-all approach to moulding PCR tubes. The problem is, thermocyclers are not all one size. BIOplastics works closely with CYCLERtest, a thermocycler calibration systems manufacturer, to ensure our skirted plates are optimally designed for each thermocycler system.
BIOplastics’ thin-walled mats of polypropylene tubes click into the thermocycler-optimized skirts. The tubes are manufactured via low-cavity moulding, which means fewer mats are produced at one time, allowing for superior uniformity and quality control.
BIOplastics also provides a simple but genius solution to plastic waste in PCR workflows. BIOplastic mats tear apart, easily converting from 96-wells to any combination of 8 wells. Sealing sheets also come perforated, to minimize plastic waste.
For ultimate waste-reduction, use with BIOplastics’s perforated sealing sheets or 8-strip caps.
