FAQ: For L4001P - Do I need to use the entire Luna plate in a single experiment? How are the 8-well strip tubes separated?

The 96 well plate and optical lids are provided in a tear-off format allowing use of the entire plate directly or partially. The twelve 8-well strips are partially attached to each other, so the required number of 8-well strip tubes can be separated by gently tearing away the desired number of strip tubes. The 8-well strips are clicked in the yellow shell frame and the yellow shell frame adaptor must be removed to separate one or more strip tubes. The 8-well strips and lids are labeled 1 to 12 at the bottom to provide a tracking system independent of the yellow shell frame adaptor. Please check Plate Information and Instrument Compatibility section in the protocol for more information.
