Armadillo Plates

Ultimate high-performance PCR consumables

Thermo Scientific Armadillo PCR plates combine the rigidity of a polycarbonate frame with thin-walled polypropylene wells to provide superior thermal cycling performance under all conditions without warping. Armadillo plates are available in 96- and 384-well formats and multiple colors, and they can be ordered with a standard 128 barcode or custom barcoding. All formats are available with clear or white wells, with white giving superior qPCR results. The specially designed warp-resistant frame and multiple format options make Armadillo PCR plates the ultimate choice for high-throughput PCR and automated handling.
