Mass Loss

Confirming the materials ability to resist high temperatures. Results: Pass.
Details: Mass loss of solution evaluated after 30 cycles of 3 step PCR Programme. Equipment: ABI Thermocycler, Precision Balance.

Measuring the force required to push a standardised needle through the material via compression measuring equipment. Results: Pass.
Details 5 tests run using a standardised needle, ensuring that less than 10N is required to pierce the surface & access the wells. Test Value = 7.22N. Equipment Instron 3343 Tensometer.

Burst Testing
Determining the materials adhesion to the plate. Results Pass.
Details Microplates are sealed and tested under pressure. Tests passed once achieved 2 bar of pressure or greater. Equipment Miniburst 5.

Measuring the materials permanence of adhesion & its ability to be removed, via extension measuring equipment. Results: Pass.
Details Cohesive Failure, Adhesive Transfer, Material tear & Successful Peel are measured & recorded after a 180℃ peel test. Equipment Instron 3343 Tensometer.

Low Temperature Seal Test
Confirming the materials ability to resist low temperatures. Results: Pass.
Details: Microplates are sealed at specified low temperatures & subjected to a series of tests to substantiate seal integrity. Equipment: Laboratory Cold storage unit.

Evaluating the materials resistance to solvents (DMSO used as an aggressive standard). Results: N/A.
Details Sealed plate is subjected to a high concentration of DMSO for a time period at low temperatures after which seal damage & volume loss are determined. Equipment Laboratory Cold storage unit, DMSO solution.

Plate Types, Sealing Temp. Time Settings
Polypropylene(PP), Polystyrene (PS).
Temperature and Dwell Time: 175℃, 2 seconds.

QC testing is carried out to ensure that products are free from nucleases (DNases & RNases) as well as human genomic DNA. Although every effort is made, including cleanroom manufacture, to maintain this level of cleanliness, best laboratory practice with regards to duplicate testing should be followed.
