What is the difference between the MicroAmp® Optical Adhesive Covers and the MicroAmp® Optical Caps? Can they be used interchangeably?

Product FAQ

Answer

The MicroAmp® Optical Adhesive Covers (P/N 4311971) have a higher optical efficiency than the MicroAmp® Optical Caps, (8 caps/strip) (P/N 4323032). They can be used instead of the MicroAmp® Optical Caps only when using the MicroAmp® 96-Well Reaction Plate with Barcode (P/N 4306737, 4309849) or the MicroAmp® Optical 96-Well Reaction Plate (P/N N801-0560). The Optical Adhesive Covers cannot be used with the MicroAmp® Optical Tubes.
