The Difference Between PCR Tubes And Centrifuge Tubes

Centrifuge tubes are not necessarily PCR tubes. There are many kinds of centrifuge tubes according to their capacity. The commonly used ones are 1.5ml, 2ml, 5ml, 15 or 50ml. The smallest one (250ul) can be used as a PCR tube.

The PCR reaction plate is 96-well or 384-well, which is specially designed for batch reaction. The principle is that the throughput of PCR instrument and sequencer is generally 96 or 384. You can search the picture on the Internet.

As for the skirt, this part has nothing to do with PCR itself. Whether there is a skirt is mainly determined by the instrument you use. For example, some sequencers can only match 96-well plates with half skirts, while ordinary PCR machines use The boards are the same with and without the skirt.

The deformation of the PCR tube affects the results. The deformation of the PCR tube will affect the transmission of fluorescent signals, resulting in the continuous decrease of the PCR reaction system with the cycle, affecting the normal progress of the PCR reaction. So it affects the result.

The PCR tube is made of polypropylene (PP) material, with an integrated design, and the whole set of products cooperates smoothly; it has strong transparency, good softness, strong corrosion resistance, anti-static products, and good air tightness.
