AbsorbMax films are 200 μm thick black vinyl adhesive films for use with 96 well, 384 well, and 1536 well black microplates. The films may be applied to either the top or bottom of the plate. A split backing aids in applying the film properly. Edge cutouts assist in positioning and accommodate ribs on the plate bottom. The light-blocking and absorbing properties of AbsorbMax films make them ideal for protecting light-sensitive samples during storage. In fluorescence applications they reduce stray light and well-to-well crosstalk. For top-reading fluorescence applications, apply the black film to the plate bottom with clear-bottom wells. For bottom-reading fluorescence, use the black film as a top seal. Dimensions: 76.2 by 114.3 mm. AbsorbMax films will fit within the rim of raised-rim plates. Recommended temperature range: -40°C to +80°C.
