Barcoded 96-Well PCR

These PCR microplates have user- and machine-readable bar codes for sample tracking. Our barcoded PCR plates are compatible with Bio-Rad’s T100™, C1000 Touch™, and S1000™ Thermal Cyclers and all CFX series real-time PCR systems. Use the PCR Plastics Consumables Selector Tool to determine individual plate compatibility with other instruments.

Several types of barcoded PCR plates are available to suit different needs.

  • Hard-Shell® 96-Well PCR Plates have a patented* two-component design engineered to remain warp-free, permitting precise positioning for automation, and have black lettering for easy identification. Hard-Shell plates are compatible with heat, pressure, and adhesive sealing.
    Choose from:
    • Hard-Shell® High-Profile and Low-Profile Semi-Skirted 96-Well PCR Plates
    • Hard-Shell® Low-Profile Skirted 96-Well PCR Plates
