Can’t find the microplate design you’re looking for? We’ll customize one for you
Did you know that most of our standard microplate products originated as custom design requests?
That’s because our modular production process makes numerous product configurations possible. This approach also reduces the time and resources needed to produce your custom product. So you’ll receive your microplates quickly, with lower minimum order quantities.
Custom labware is available as well, including tubes, tube strips, spin baskets, and unique injection-molded products.
If you are ready for a custom microplate design, and have your desired specifications and critical dimensions, use our request form to get started.
Your application is unique. While there are plenty of standard microplate options to choose from, the right microplate for your needs could be a variation of an existing product. For example, newly developed materials may not yet be available in the format you need. You might also have unique scale-up or scale-down requirements.
Adding a custom control reservoir well, a unique well bottom shape, or a proprietary binding matrix can give you a competitive edge. It can also boost your efficiency and bottom line.
Using a microplate with custom specifications can also lower your cost per data point and improve:
Ease of use
How much customization is possible?
All of our microplate operations—including engineering, tooling, injection molding, assembly, quality control, and packaging—are performed under one roof. No request is too complex.
Our services include:
Barcode printing and application
Surface charge treatment, vacuum plasma, and atmospheric plasma
Gamma irradiation sterilization
Logo hot stamping
Custom labeling and packaging
Filter material sourcing and shaping
Insertion of one or multiple filters (including frits)
UV cure adhesive bonding
We can encapsulate almost any media, and multiple layers of media, into configurations that will ensure the best results. What’s more, we can fill plates with your media, silica, ground glass, or diatomaceous earth. Drip directors are also available, as well as a half-skirt option.
What information will I need to provide?
Three key details will help us efficiently meet your requirements.
1. Tell us your exact protocol
What are the sample volume and the number of wells on the plate? What are the characteristics of the component(s) you want to filter? If you need to share proprietary information, we can arrange a nondisclosure agreement.
2. Spell out your goals and metrics
Do you need a 96-well microplate or a 48-well plate? Is a filter plate right for the job? Answering these types of questions will get you closer to sourcing the right microplate.
3. Let us know your business considerations
Be sure to communicate your target price and delivery expectations—plus other requirements such as barcoding, powder filling, and heat sealing.
