Borosilicate Glass Microplates Improve Imaging Sensitivity
26/02/2021

Porvair Sciences new Krystal™ Glass Bottom microplate with high quality specialty glass from Schott provides unmatched performance for whole-plate CCD imaging and laser detection applications.

Krystal™ Glass Bottom plates combine the advantageous optical properties of glass, low background and low birefringence, with the versatility of a microplate.

Constructed in ultra-pure grade borosilicate glass from Schott, Krystal™ Glass Bottom microplate is precision manufactured for high optical performance in high resolution microscopy applications. These glass bottom plates offer high optical quality, thermal stability, chemical resistance, and low autofluorescence to suit a wide range of samples for accurate and reliable light and fluorescence readings. Due to the high clarity bottom of Schott specialty Glass, exact positioning of the microplate on microscopes and imaging apparatus can be made with ease.

The latest Krystal™ microplate is available in different thicknesses including 50 µm, 175 µm and for high sensitivity applications a 170µm version is available with a very special thickness tolerance of only +/- 5 µm.

Precisely manufactured to SBS / ANSI microplate dimensions the affordable Krystal™ Glass Bottom design is fully compatible with all commercially available plate readers, robotic sample processors and automated liquid handling systems. The complete Krystal™ range of glass bottom microplates is available tissue culture treated to optimise cell growth or without surface modification.

The Porvair Sciences Krystal™ Glass Bottom plate range demonstrate higher performance than standard polystyrene plates for fluorescence assays, luminescence detection, scintillation counting and high-resolution microscopy using confocal imaging.
