1536-well plates are offered in standard well format plate type. 1536-well plates are manufactured with rounded wells which allow for optimal uniform meniscus formation. 1536-well plates are available in transparent, white pigmented and black pigmented plates. 1536-well plates are manufactured with the F-bottom shape. The F-bottom shape is designed for precise optical measurements and is well suited for colorimetric determinations as well as microscopy applications.
The 1536-well plates generally will require robotic equipment as they are used in ultra high-throughput screening laboratories. 1536-well plates are commonly found in core laboratories, drug discovery laboratories, pharmaceutical research and development laboratories, and contract research organizations.
