Can I place a standard MicroAmp® 96-Well Optical Reaction Plate onto a 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR System?

Product FAQ

Answer

No. The plate does not fit and will result in the crushing of the wells and possible contamination of the block due to leaking of the well contents.

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.
