Glass Microplates

These glass microplates are made from special high purity, temperature resistant borosilicate glass and the surfaces are acid polished. Plates are rectangular in the standard SBS microplate footprint (85 x 127 mm).

The glass reactor microplates are highly resistant to attack by water, neutral and acid salt solutions, strong acids and mixtures thereof, and also chlorine, bromine, iodine and organic substances. Only hydrofluoric acid, solutions containing fluorides such as ammonium fluoride, very hot phosphoric acid and strongly alkaline solutions attack the surface of the glass to an increasing extent at higher concentrations and temperatures.

These glass reactor microplates are designed primarily for use with chemistry applications and are resistant to temperatures up to 530° C. They can be autoclaved. They are machined from a homogeneous glass sheet and feature uniform geometry and shape to provide consistent temperatures from well to well (within 0.2 degrees C typical). The uniformity of the thickness of the plate bottoms is approximately +/- 0.1 mm and the bottom is frosted; these plates are not recommended for use with optical detection screening experiments.

The glass microplates have been successfully used for FT-ICR MS. For reference, see "Automated Electrospray Ionization FT-ICR Mass Spectrometry for Petroleum Analysis" by Sunghwan Kim et al. J Am Soc Mass Spectrom 2009, 263-268.
