VP 472A - Index system to register VP 478A Replicator to a 384 well microplate
Availability: In stock
The VP 472A Microplate Indexing System aligns the 32 Pin Replicator, VP 478A, to appropriate wells in a 384 well microplate. This provides a very simple method of placing the replicator pins into the center of the wells by using a 4 set series of vertocal guide pins on the top of the Indexing system and the pair of alignment holes in the bottom of the Replicator. This vertical alignment system is paired with a three notched position horizontal alignment system illustrated in the following photos, photo #1, photo #2 and photo #3. This registration system also prevents the pins from being damaged at the bottom of the wells.
The VP 472A Microplate Indexer will accommodate all 384 well microplates that conform to the Society of Biomolecular Screening Standards. Many of the 384 well polypropylene PCR plates are smaller (length and width) than the SBS Standard and need to be shimmed for the correct registration. We can show you a simple but effective way to do this.
Because of the unique way the pins are positioned in the two Glass Slide Replicators, 8 pin, VP 478 - 9 mm pitch, 96 well and 32 pin, VP 478A - 4.5 mm pitch, 384 well), they each have to be used with their specific Microplate Indexing System.
