SWISSCI Plates: Improvements in Imaging with UVXPO

SWISSCI Plates: Improvements in Imaging with UVXPO

UVXPO: Our Most Advanced Polymer

SWISSCI crystallisation plates are available in 3 polymers.  Polystyrene (PS) is a cost-effective polymer that Is optically clear when using standard bright field or visible light sources. However, when imaging drops using both cross polarised (XP) and UV light, the quality of the image is impaired by the interaction of the polymer with the light source.

SWISSCI’s UVP polymer has been designed to reduce the auto-fluorescence coming from the plate, improving the UV image quality. 

SWISSCI’s UVXPO polymer also has the same low auto-fluorescence while also showing uniform zero background when imaging using cross-polarised light. This makes it our most advanced polymer to date.

UVXPO Sealing Sheets

UVXPO Sealing Sheets

UVXPO Sealing Sheets

SWISSCI’s UVXPO Sealing sheets are a 50 µm film with 50 µm inert encapsulated silicone adhesive. They are optically clear, with minimal to no auto-fluorescence (UV compatible), and are especially suited for protein crystallization and qPCR applications.

The encapsulated silicone adhesive is non-tacky until pressed against the sealing surface, at which time adhesive is released only in sealing areas to form the strongest available heat-resistant seal around each well on the plate. The adhesive on non-sealing areas of the film, such as directly over sample wells, remains encapsulated and inert.

UVXPO Sealing sheets are sized to fit within the edges of  SWISSCI plates. Two end tabs assist in positioning the film on the plate, and the non-tacky adhesive surface simplifies handling. Easy removal of the end tabs at perforated boundaries prevents lifting and higher evaporation rates that can occur with films that overlap the plate rim.

· High optical clarity
· Minimal to no auto-fluorescence (UV compatible)
· Chemically inert; no extractables except at extreme pH
· DMSO resistant for HTS
· Heat resistant recommended for temperatures from -70 °C to +105 °C
· Certified DNase-, RNase-, and nucleic-acid-free
· Silicone adhesive forms the strongest available seal for evaporation prevention
· Non-tacky adhesive layer simplifies handling of the film prior to sealing
