Porvair Sciences Ltd has specialised in the manufacture of microplates and microplate equipment in the UK since 1992. They have manufactured and distributed tissue-culture treated microplates since 2001 and now expand their range to include the most common types of tissue culture labware.Porvair serve Life Sciences, Biotechnology, R&D and Molecular Biology with microplate solutions for all applications and with epigenetics & tissue culture supplies.
This new range of tissue culture plastics combines the unrivalled optical purity of high-pressure moulded 100% USP VI Class virgin crystal polystyrene with a patented low-pressure gas plasma surface treatment that allows cells to adhere more efficiently to the surface by reducing it’s hydrophobicity. Highly polished moulds and rigorous quality control ensure that you get perfect visualisation every time with our new flasks and dishes.
Special glass-bottom culture dishes employ an optically clear glass bottom cleverly bound to a plastic dished frame with matching clear plastic lid. Data from a leading British University shows adherent cells grow as well or better on Porvair TC plastics as on a leading branded product.
