faCellitate 2023: Cutting-edge Flat-Bottom microplates with Ultra-Low Adhesion Surface

faCellitate GmbH | Mannheim, Germany | 21st December, 2023

Press release:  faCellitate expands its product range with the launch of three new BIOFLOAT™ -coated flat-bottom microplates; a 96-well format, soon to be followed by 24- and 6-well plates. This innovative series is purposefully crafted as an addition to the BIOFLOAT 96-well and 384-well U-Bottom plates, catering to spheroid and organoid applications.

The BIOFLOAT coated flat-bottom microplate sets a new standard with superior anti-adhesive qualities, unlocking the potential for cultivating cells in 3D or in suspension (e.g., T cells) with the flat bottom allowing a better imaging of 3D cultures compared to U-bottom plates.

Coming soon, the latest BIOFLOAT 96-well flat-bottom format microplate will also be followed by 24- and 6-well formats. BIOFLOAT plates, adhering to the SLAS/ANSI standard, ensure compatibility with all major high throughput screening workflows, providing a versatile solution for diverse laboratory applications.

The BIOFLOAT coating is known for its exceptional scratch-resistance. This important property is conferred by the unique polymeric structure of the coating which forms an ultra-thin film. This allows for the unparalleled data consistency conferred by the BIOFLOAT coating in laboratory settings. Renowned for its anti-adhesive properties, experts are heralding the BIOFLOAT 96-well U-Bottom plate as a New Standard for rapid and uniform spheroid formation.

The 96-well microplate features flat-bottom coated with BIOFLOAT Ultra-Low Attachment (ULA) surface coating, facilitating the effortless formation of organoids or multiple spheroids in every well. This is achieved through a user-friendly ‘out-of-the-box’ approach. The crystal-clear well-bottom is optimized for seamless read-out via microscopes or scanners.
