Today, microtiter plates are standard tools in the laboratory and are available for almost every application in life science research, be it filtration, separation, optical detection, storage or reaction mixing. The microtiter or well plate is usually produced in a rectangular 2:3 format with 96, 384 or 1536 wells isolated from each other. There are a number of other formats on the same base with variable height or filling volume. The well bottoms can be either flat, tapered or u-shaped. The 96-well format is the most commonly used well format in the laboratory.
Microtiter plates are usually made of polystyrene, for special applications of glass. Depending on the application, well plates are available in transparent (optical measurements), black (fluorescence measurements) or white (luminescence measurements) versions. Microplates are available in sterile and non-sterile versions.
