High quality microplates with well-defined properties are essential prerequisites for reproducible results in advanced drug discovery. In addition to format and pigmentation, determining the best microplate surface for use within a specific application is a critical factor for successful high-throughput screening.
Non-binding surfaced from Greiner Bio-One are achieved through a stable chemical modification to covalently link functional groups with the base polystyrene polymer. Under aqueous assay conditions a hydrate layer forms, preventing dissolved biomolecules from binding to the microplate surface. As the non-binding surface is stable under common assay conditions, there is no potential for degradation or leaching and resultant assay interference.
