VINELAND, N.J. /New York Netwire/ — Designed for analytical research and clinical diagnostic testing, Laboratory Supply Distributors Corp. announces the 96-Well Multi-Tier™ Micro Plate System. Its unique, patented design allows for more flexibility and ease of use.

An improvement on existing 96-Well systems, the Multi-Tier Plate can be built using spacers to hold vial capacities of 0.5ml, 1.0ml, 1.5ml and 2.0ml depending on the height limitations of the instrument. Replacement vials can be purchased in a vial loader format which is a fast and convenient choice for loading vials into the base plate.

“Just peel away the packaging of the vial loader and place an empty base plate on the top of the vial loader. Invert the entire unit and the plate is ready to use,” says Clifton Hitchner, vice president, Laboratory Supply Distributors Corp.

The Multi-Tier Micro Plate System allows for the use of individual vials of different heights and volumes, providing for maximum diversity.

Additionally, many assays require heating or cooling of the vials to simulate in-vitro conditions or for temperature sensitive experiments. The new, open bottom design allows the base plate to be immersed in heating or cooling fluids to provide for total fluid contact with the vials. In turn, this allows for a uniform transfer of heat or cold to and from the vials.

Primarily, these systems are ideal for experimental and sorbent assays; drug discovery; drug metabolism research; combinatorial chemistry; high-throughput screening (HTS); and liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS-MS).

In addition to the volume choices available, labs may also choose between 9mm plastic or glass inserts with conical or flat bottoms. The plate may also be fixed height or adjusted to height limitation of analytical instrument.

Spacers build adjustable height to support different-sized inserts. And, plate cover locks the liner in place, prevents vial pullout and provides a secondary sealing system.
