Which bottom forms do BRANDplates® microplates have?

While 96-well BRANDplates® microplates are offered with four distinct bottom shapes (U, V, F and C), 384-well and 1536-well plates are only available with F-bottom.

An U-bottom is a round-shaped well bottom which is recommended for stirring and washing of samples.

The V-bottom is a conically-shaped well bottom that is recommended for applications in which sample recovery is important.

The flat F-bottom is designed for precise optical measurements and is recommended for colorimetric determinations as well as microscopy applications.

The C-bottom is a flat bottom with curved edges. The C-bottom combines the advantages of U- and F-bottom. Because of the curved edges better sample mixing is obtained. The flat bottom in the middle area of the wells enables optical measurements.
