Well types of BRANDplates® microplates

96-well microplates with four distinct bottom shapes

(384-well and 1536-well microplates are only available with F-bottom.)

Round-shaped well bottom. As wells with this bottom have no edges they are well suited for stirring and washing of samples. This bottom shape is used for agglutination and other assays requiring these tasks.

Conically-shaped well bottom. Sample recovery is maximized with this bottom shape. For this reson plates with V-bottom are especially suited for precipitation assays and storage.

Flat well bottom. The F-bottom is designed for precise optical measurements and is well suited for colorimetric determinations as well as microscopy applications. Additionally, the F-bottom is used for specific applications such as cell culture. 

Flat bottom with curved edges. The C-bottom combines the advantages of U- and F-bottom. Because of the curved edges beter sample mixing is obtained. The flat bottom in the middle area of the wells at the same time allows the realization of precise optival measurements. The C-bottom is specially suited for immunological assays, as sample stirring has a mejor impact on precise assay results as well as optical measurement to determine those results.


Well geometry is an important characteristic of these products

BRANDplates® microplates with 96-well standard format are manufactured with the socalled chimney well. Each individual well is separated from each other with a gap to avoid cross contamination. In combination with the condensation rings of the lid, evaporation is reduces substantially.



In the 394- and 1536-well formats, rounded wells allow optimal uniform meniscus formation.
