Magnetic beads are sequestered at the outer edges of each well providing for simplified removal of supernatants using automated platforms. Designed for use with GE Whatman Uniplate 7701-5102.
Alpaqua microplates with integrated Spring Cushion Technology give way when tips come in contact with a well bottom, thus compensating for physical tolerances between labware and pipettors that can compromise precision aspiration. Alpaqua’s proprietary technology protects from tip vacuums, head contamination, and costly instrument repairs, while providing for maximum sample recovery and minimum dead volumes.
It is not. The center-to-center distance of the magnet plate is 18 mm (standard for 24 well plates), on the tube rack it is 20 mm. The tube rack was designed for 15 ml centrifuge tubes, and the threaded part of the tubes is 19.30 mm in diameter.
