Eppendorf twin.tec PCR Plates
Eppendorf twin.tec™ PCR Plates are manufactured utilizing "twin-shot technology," an innovative injection mold process. This unique method combines two of the best performing materials: virgin polypropylene is used for the wells; polycarbonate, an especially rigid material, forms the plate deck and skirt. Polypropylene provides the best inert, non-wetting surface that prevents DNA, RNA, and enzymes from binding, and it improves recovery from wells even when working with minute volumes. Polycarbonate provides mechanical stability, and it facilitates handling of the Eppendorf twin.tec™ PCR plates. The enhanced stiffness offers improved plane parallelism in the plate deck before, during, and after PCR, and it ensures a more secure seal. Bending or curving of the skirt is virtually eliminated, making twin.tec™ PCR Plates the ideal choice for use with automation or robotics. Eppendorf twin.tec™ PCR Plates also offer a 20% reduction in wall thickness compared to standard thin-walled tubes. This provides a snug fit for the well against thermal blocks, and it ensures virtually undisturbed heat transfer from the block to the sample. Raised well rims optimize sealing effectiveness and reduce the risk of cross-contamination. All commonly used sealing methods-cap strips, adhesive films, and foils-can be applied to Eppendorf twin.tec™ PCR Plates for ultimate protection against evaporation and heat sealing. Autoclavable. Certified to be free of any detectable human DNA, DNase, RNase, and PCR inhibitors.
