The “384” for 384-well plates
This Alpha unit was developed in collaboration with several genome centers to provide a high-density format for automated operation. It is a true 4x version of the 96-well format. The wells have the same V-profile and are spaced on 4.5 mm centers.
Single block Alpha units feature multizone thermal control for optimal temperature uniformity across the sample block. The 96-well format Alpha blocks have a temperature gradient capability as a standard feature.
