Modern research methods require high-quality disposables. BRANDplates ®, the new generation of microplates from BRAND, can be used in all important fields of life science.
BRAND has applied its decades of experience in premium-quality molding of lab plastic consumables from pipette tips to volumetric plasticware to cuvettes to the challenges of microplate design. Plates are designed to minimize cross-contamination, ensure excellent recovery, and to offer many options in color, well-count, surface-treatment and well-shape.
For this comprehensive line, three new immunological and four new cell culture surfaces have been developed under the most modern production conditions. The new product line covers a multitude of standard applications (e.g., homogenous assays, screenings) as well as applications in the fields of immunology and cell culture technique.
Surface Type Tables
The tables below represent the nine different surface types including non-treated, immunoassay and cell culture surfaces.
“A comprehensive, premium-quality line of plates for cell culture and immunoassay.”
|pureGrade™ S||non-treated, sterile|
|immunoGrade™||ideal for immobilization of IgG, non-sterile|
|hydroGrade™||hydrophilic, ideal for immobilization of hydrophilic molecules,
|lipoGrade™||hydrophobic, ideal for immobilization of hydrophobic molecules,
|Cell Culture Surfaces|
|cellGrade™||standard surface for the cultivation of adherent cell cultures,
|cellGrade™ plus||surface for the cultivation of fastidious adherent cells making
serum-reduced cultivation possible, sterile
|cellGrade™ premium||surface treatment with similar properties to poly-D-lysine,
serum-reduced or serum-free cultivation is possible, sterile
|inertGrade™||surface that inhibits adhesion of cells, e.g., when working
with cell suspensions, sterile
Even with this information, you may still not be sure which of the BRANDplates ® microplate would be the best for your specific application. For example, when you are establishing a new ELISA, and you may want to test which surface will immobilize the molecule best. Or maybe you are working with a new cell line and would like to determine on which surface the cells grow best. There is no substitute for direct experience. Feel free to request samples without cost or obligation! We would be glad to provide you information and recommend an appropriate plate for your assay.
