LightCycler® 480 Multiwell Plates 96, clear are half-skirted, clear polypropylene reaction devices supplied with a bar-code label. Their dimensions (inner/outer well geometry) and material are designed to achieve optimized assay conditions on the LightCycler® 480 Instrument, 96-well for reaction volumes from 10 to 100 μl.

  • Perfect fit to fully exploit special thermal and optical characteristics of the LightCycler® 480 Instrument, 96-well.
  • Cut-away corner for error-free positioning.
  • Provided with applied bar code for easy assay and sample tracking.
  • Compatible with robotic handling.
  • Easy visual pipetting control.


Each pack of LightCycler® 480 Multiwell Plates 96 contains 5 x 10 plates in five re-sealable, non-sterile plastic bags. Sealing foils are supplied in a separate box also contained in the plate pack.

Note: Because of the special characteristics of the LightCycler® 480 Instrument's thermal block, optimal assay performance according to the LightCycler® 480 System's specifications can only be achieved when LightCycler® 480 Multiwell Plates are used.
Sealing foils compatible with LightCycler® 480 Multiwell Plates 96 and LightCycler® 480 Multiwell Plates 384 are also available separately.

Note: For FRET (HybProbe) probes or high-resolution melting, LightCycler® 480 Multiwell plates, white (96-well and 384-well) are recommended.

LightCycler® 480 Multiwell Plates 96, clear are used for SYBR Green I and Hydrolysis probe-based assays on the LightCycler® 480 Instrument, 96-well version. They are not recommended for applications based on FRET (HybProbe) probes or high-resolution melting. 
Note: Clear LightCycler® 480 Multiwell plates can only be used on LightCycler® 480 Instruments with LightCycler® 480 Software 1.5 installed.

The LightCycler® 480 System includes a high-performance thermal block based on heating and cooling principles novel to the field of PCR applications. The novel design of the thermal block also requires tailor-made reaction devices which match the exact geometry of the block and permit optimal heat transfer.
