Glass Microplates

These glass microplates are made from special high purity, temperature resistant borosilicate glass and the surfaces are acid polished. Standard plates are 15 mm high and deep-well plates are 45 mm high. Plates are available with 24, 96, or 384 cavities. Plates are rectangular in the standard SBS microplate footprint (85 x 127 mm) with 90° or 45° corners.

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.

Accessories for glass reactor plates with 45 degree corners.

The glass plates with 45 degree corners were designed to be used with these accessories to build a sealed, modular reaction system. The angled corners allow the plate to fit inside the 4 corner posts (aluminum spacers). The aluminum base will transfer heat for thermal reactions and the reactor plates can be tightly sealed to prevent evaporation (Does not provide a seal against a pressurized environment).
