Do you think your microtitre plates are cold enough on ice? Think again! Only BioCision
Feb 9, 2011Used as an interface between a microplate and crushed ice, the BioCision CoolSink thermo-conductive plate holder provides fast temperature uniformity. Many experimental and clinical applications require low temperature control for culture plates. However, a new Application Note published in BioTechniques1 demonstrates that although it is commonly assumed that a plate in direct contact with crushed ice will rapidly equilibrate below 4ºC, this is not the case...
