96-Well Plate Footprint Dimensions Microplate Standard Overview The standard established by the former Society for Biomedical Sciences (SBS) now the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) defines the dimensional requirements of the footprint of a microplate as specified in the American National Standards covering these microplates. This standard was devised to describe the […]
The Origin Of Microplate Standards
Microplate Standards The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Society of Biomolecular Screening (SBS) now named the Society For Laboratory Automation And Screening (SLAS) approved a standard for microplates in 2004. In 1995, as early as the first meeting of the SBS, a need for clearly defined dimensional standards of a microplate were identified. The […]
