Individually Packed Sterile Assay PlatesPorvair Sciences' Krystal (TM) series clear bottom assay plates. Credit: Porvair SciencesAvailable in a choice of 24-, 96-, and 384-well formats, Krystal (TM) series clear bottom assay plates are widely recognized as industry-leading cell culture tools by many pharma drug discovery and screening labs. These standard clear polystyrene bottom plates have bases just 0.4mm thick and are molded from highly polished tools to reduce flow lines, artefacts, and scratches, guaranteeing excellent results with all types of bottom-reading instruments.

For more demanding applications, precision engineered Krystal glass bottom plates from Porvair Sciences are manufactured using a polystyrene upper and a borosilicate glass sheet fixed to the base with a biocompatible adhesive. This proprietary process results in consistent flatness (+/- 15 microns) across the base, excellent light transmission, and a flat optical plane for growing cells. Based upon a standard SBS / ANSI microplate format, Krystal glass bottom plates are fully compatible with all confocal microscopes as well as automated liquid handling and robotic devices.
