New 1536 well microplate for high-content screening

greiner_bio_oneGreiner Bio-One, a leading international technology partner for the diagnostic and pharmaceutical industry, presents "SCREENSTAR" - a new 1536 well microplate designed for high-content and high-throughput screening.

Greiner Bio-One and automation supplier GNF Systems, San Diego, USA, co-developed the new 1536 well microplate for screening active pharmaceutical compounds and other agents. It is particularly suited to microscopic applications with high screening throughput requirements, e.g. high-content screening.

Manufactured entirely of cycloolefin, the microplate features a black pigmented frame to reduce cross-talk of light signals in fluorescence measurements and a 190 micrometer ultraclear film bottom, ideal for instrument optics and microscopy.

With a refractive index similar to glass, the transparent cycloolefin well bottom combines the highest optical transparency with reduced autofluorescence, particularly in the lower UV range. Moreover, thanks to the distance of just 0.7 mm between the edge of the microplate and the film bottom, all wells can be examined easily, even with high-magnification objectives.

The 1536 well SCREENSTAR microplate also benefits from Greiner Bio-One's tried-and-tested CELLSTAR cell culture quality, thus optimising the product for cell-based assay systems, too.

The smooth microplate top absent of alphanumeric coding also facilitates use of the flush lid system developed for microplates by GNF. SCREENSTAR is thus an ideal screening plate for the GNF ultra-high throughput screening system.
