The second generation of Corning® 96 Well, sitting drop format plates are built to SBS specifications, making them well suited for high throughput crystallization and are fully compatible with robotic equipment. The plates are available in several different configurations with varying drop well shapes, plate materials, and number of drop wells per reagent well. The basic plate design is one reagent well flanked by one or three drop wells, with SBS standard spacing between the centers of adjacent well clusters. One may choose a plate with small (1 µl), medium (2 µl), or large (4 µl) drop well volumes. The choice of round or conical flat well shapes are available. The PZero polymer provides for zero background polarization and is non-birefringent. PZero plates are not treated. The COC polymer offers high chemical resistance. Both types of plastic feature improved transparency. The reservoir numbers are embossed on each individual well for easy identification. Drop well locations conform to SBS standards for robotic handling. The low-volume reagent well saves on reagent costs. The plates can be sealed using Crystal Clear Sealing Film (HR3-609), 3 inch wide Crystal Clear Sealing Tape (HR4-506) or ClearSeal Film™ (HR4-521).
