96 Well Plate Template

A 96-well plate template is used to design scientific experiments where different groups of controls or samples are used. These free downloadable and printable well-plate templates come in multiple formats (96, 48, 24) for a range of different experimental purposes.

How to Use a 96 Well Plate Template

The 96-well plate template is used to design experiments performed in a well plate. The template is read like a chart, one side labeled A-H the other 1-12 for each grouping. Use the template to set up your experiment controls, unknown samples and other variables. 

A 96 well plate (also known as a 96 well microwell or microtiter plate) contains 96 small test tube like containers so that many experiments can be performed on one plate. Experiments are performed manually using a multichannel pipettor or robotic liquid handler in each well. The plate well can be shaped differently depending on the type of experiment such as small V bottom (PCR reaction), flat bottom (cell assays and quantitation assays) and round bottom (unattached cell proliferation, DNA extraction). 

Numbered Well-Plate Orienters

In addition to using the reference templates provided on this page, you might also find it useful to position a well orienter, a multiwell plate accessory, under your microplates. This thin plastic card is alpha-numerically labeled to help identify every well in a plate. Our 96-well orienter is sized to easily line up with the wells on standard plates.
