A 96-well PCR plate is a commonly used tool in molecular biology and biomedical research. It is typically used for high-throughput DNA amplification, such as in PCR (polymerase chain reaction) experiments. The dimensions of a 96-well PCR plate are standardized, which means that they are consistent across different manufacturers.
The standard dimensions of a 96-well PCR plate are as follows:
- Well diameter: 5 mm
- Well center-to-center distance: 9 mm
- Plate dimensions: 127.76 mm × 85.48 mm × 15.65 mm(There are different height depends on different PCR Volume and styles.)
- Well depth: 15.0 mm/20.5mm(other depth depends on different PCR Volumes and styles)
These dimensions allow for consistent and reliable results across experiments, as they ensure that each sample is pipetted into the same size and shape of well, with the same distance between wells. Additionally, the standard dimensions make it easy to fit the plate into common lab equipment, such as PCR thermocyclers.
