Key facts

  • Optimal for cell-based screenings with complex cell models
  • Choice of 11 different peptide & protein coatings (single & double coatings)
  • Convenient, ready to use and reproducible
  • ​​​​​​​Cycloolefin bottom plates with glass-like optical properties
  • From 96 to 1536 well format

To better meet the requirements of your screening, SCREENSTAR CELLCOAT® plates come along with a generic barcode (Code 128).

  • Labels are applied to all 4 sides of the microplate
  • 128 barcode format is compatible with most barcode scanning and software systems
  • No duplicate sequence numbers
  • Excellent print quality and resolution


The barcode sequence appears as follows:

  • 96 well SCREENSTAR CELLCOAT® plates:      G96xxxxxx
  • 384 well SCREENSTAR CELLCOAT® plates:   G384xxxxxx
  • 1536 well SCREENSTAR CELLCOAT® plates:  G1536xxxxxx

         with xxxxxx as consecutive numbers.

CELLCOAT® SCREENSTAR plates are suitable for a wide range of cell culture applications providing optimal culture conditions:

  • Cell-based assays with complex cell models: primary cells, transfected cells, knock-out cells, co-cultures, etc.
  • Cell culture in serum-free and serum-reduced medium
  • Stem cell maintenance and expansion
  • Stem cell differentiation
  • Cell adhesion and migration studies
  • Improved cell attachment and spreading
  • Enhanced cell proliferation
  • More complex cell morphology
  • In-vivo mimicking environment

SCREENSTAR plates are specialized microplates for sophisticated microscopic applications in high-content screening (HCS) or high-resolution microscopy with water and oil immersion objectives. The microplates enable complete periphery access for high magnification objectives. They are entirely manufactured out of cycloolefin with a black pigmented cycloolefin frame and a 190 μm ultra-clear cycloolefin film bottom.
