Corning Costar® Tissue Culture Plates

Tissue Culture-treated Plates are designed for a wide range of applications including general cell growth experiments, cloning studies, virus isolation and in vitro testing.

Plate bottoms have a uniform thickness, allowing for distortion-free observation. Alphanumeric coordinates are placed on the same focal plane as cell growth, for convenient referencing of cell position. Gripping edges make handling easier.

All plates have non-reversible covers with condensation rings to minimize evaporation and the risk of contamination.

Plates are made of optically clear, medical-grade non-pyrogenic polystyrene, TC-treated, sterile and are used for processing of tissue on the bench or in the microwave. The corresponding Wellplate Inserts are No. 36168 for the 6 cavity, No. 36170 for the 12 cavity, and No. 36172 for the 24 cavity.

SecureSeal

SecureSeal™ Sealing Film

SecureSeal™ is a thermal adhesive sealing film which consists of 2.0 mil polyolefin film coated on one side with pressure sensitive acrylate adhesive. Designed to reduce spill-over and well to well contamination in tissue culture plates, SecureSeal™ also minimizes evaporation and vapor loss for PCR applications.

This film has low autofluorescence and is functional from -70°C to +100°C. Certified RNase, DNase and DNA-free; DMSO resistant. Available in sterile and non-sterile packages.
