Product information

Array Tape® is a thin (0.3 mm) and flexible continuous polymer strip, serially embossed with reaction wells in customised volumes and formats including a 96- and 384-well array. A reel with 40 meters of Array Tape carries 277 equivalents of a 384-well plate (106, 368 reaction wells). Array Tape is the ideal consumable for fast, streamlined and continuous lab workflow processes.

Array Tape benefits

The design of Array Tape and the modular inline platform maintains the flexibility of microplate-based technology while virtually eliminating manual handling and complex robotics.

  • Each 96-, 384- or 768-well array in tape is labelled with a unique 2D barcode and a human readable number ensuring accurate identification of individual samples during and after processing
  • The maximum well volume is 2 µL and the ideal working volume is 0.8 µL to 1.6 µL
  • Array Tape is optimised for KASP™ genotyping assay and KlearKall™ assay reagents for genotyping
  • Can be stored at -80°C and can stand +99°C in PCR thermal cycling
  • Suitable for stable storage of chemical compounds
  • Array Tape is customisable to your individual requirements

Cost-effective and environmentally conscious

  • Plastic required to manufacture a 384-well microplate is 7 times greater (23.1g) than 384-well array in Array Tape (3.1g)
  • Reagent storage, handling and disposal is reduced by 80% due to smaller reaction volumes in Array Tape (<0.8 µL/well) versus 384-well microplates (5 µL/well)
  • Waterbath thermocycling of Array Tape spools replaces hundreds of block heaters that require 35 times more energy

Array Tape reduces plastic, reagent and energy consumption.
