‘Determination of well-to-well crosstalk in microplates used for luminescence measurements’ - .PDF file.

Porvair Sciences has introduced a range of microplates designed to address the performance-limiting well-to-well crosstalk inherent in most assay plates.

The Krystal 2000 microplates are claimed to eliminate crosstalk and improve the sensitivity, photometric accuracy and repeatability of bottom-reading absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence measurements.

They are also designed to improve cell binding efficiency and are said to enable direct measurements on bottom-reading spectrophotometers and inverted microscopes.

The microplates are available in opaque white, solid black and black and white combination formats. For sensitive fluorescence measurements, the black plate provides the all-absorbing background needed to minimise background interference. The opaque white plate maximises reflectivity, enabling even weakly emitting luminescence assays to be routinely undertaken.
