UV-Star® Microplates

UV/VIS spectroscopy is a classical analytical method for determining the chemical constitution of a substance and its concentration in aqueous solution.

UV/VIS spectroscopy is usually conducted in quartz glass cuvettes. However, cuvettes do not provide sufficient throughput when dealing with large amounts of samples, and microplates can be used to speed up work. Standard polystyrene microplates are only partially suitable for transmission measurements in the UV. Polystyrene absorbs UV especially in the short-wavelength range (< 320 nm). μClear® microplates with a polystyrene film base already have much lower background values and can be used up to 340 nm without any problem. The adaptation of the patented μClear® process technology to a new, innovative UV-transparent material has made it possible to produce UV-Star® microplates that extend the transmission range up to 230 nm.
