MultiScreen® Plates

No matter what application you’re working with, we have a plate developed to meet your specific needs. MultiScreen® plates have a long history as a reliable tool for the advancement of drug discovery, diagnostics, and life science research. Our multiwell plates enable simple, rapid, automation-compatible preparation of multiple samples to fulfill the requirements of life science, environmental analysis, clinical, forensic, and industrial quality control workflows.

MultiScreen® plates are available in a broad selection of stock configurations. Plates with 96- and 384-well capacity are created using a diverse range of housing materials to accommodate compatibility with varied media formulations and solvents. Filter plate membranes are manufactured for both low and high protein binding and feature exceptional signal-to-noise ratios for applications such as ELISpot and coincidence counting. MultiScreen® filter plates are commonly used for sample preparation including cell separation for flow cytometry, ELISpot, cell-based (migration, invasion or chemotaxis), enzyme, receptor ligand binding, solubility, and permeability assays, including PAMPA.


MultiScreen® HTS & Classic Filter Plates

MultiScreen®HTS plates are specifically developed for high-throughput use with automated work stations. Firm sidewalls improve handling and ample surfaces are provided for barcode label placement. Wells are individually sealed which prevents incubation crosstalk. The patented underdrain is removable for access to the filters. Classic filter plates have an easily removable underdrain and a unique plate design for manual assays such as ELISpot. Filter plates are available in 96-and 384-well platforms and include a broad selection of membranes and plastics.

MultiScreen® Custom Plates

We provide innovative plate customization approaches to ensure implementation of the most robust, reproducible and efficient application processes for drug discovery or industrial assay development. Our tailored partnerships are built on communication with dedicated and expert field staff to ensure an understanding of your unique project needs and requirements.

Attributes that may be customized include:

  • Membrane type and pore size
  • Number of reaction wells
  • Plate housing material
  • Plate/receiver assembly combinations
  • Sterilization
  • Plate lot reserve



MultiScreen®HTS Vacuum Manifold & Accessories

The MultiScreen®HTS Vacuum manifold was designed specifically to work with MultiScreen®HTS filter plates. The combination results in optimal filtration characteristics and seamless automation integration.



Millicell® Assay Plates

In addition to the traditional assay plate format, filter plates are also available with cell culture trays for growing and assaying suspension and adherent cell lines. Cells grown on filter plates differentiate better than those grown on traditional plastic substrates, resulting in more in vivo-like results. This filter plate/tray combination can be used for a variety of cellular assays, including transport, toxicity and screening assays.
