The excellent characteristics of quartz allows tests and measurements with all kinds of solutions under almost any conditions. Quartz microplates are suitable for low temperatures, down to the bottom of the Kelvin scale and can also be used in the high temperature range up to 900°C. It is the characteristics of this material, which make quartz microplates ideal for re-use.
Plastic plates only have limited resistance against aggressive chemicals, are hard to clean and sterilise and quickly lose their shape at high temperatures. Quartz plates have clear advantages in this area. They can be autoclaved and cleaned quickly and without changes to the surface.
