The 72 Well Microbatch Plate consists of a 6 by 12 well layout. Paraffin, Silicon, or Al’s Oil is poured into the trough area of the plate, submerging all 72 wells under oil. Sample and reagent are then pipetted into each of the wells. The plate is available as a plasma-treated, hydrophilic version for screening or an untreated, hydrophobic version for optimization. The hydrophilic version gives better liquid handling with small volumes, while the hydrophobic version reduces crystal nucleation and helps to prevent the crystals from sticking to the plastic.
