Abstract (en)

Ultrathin-walled multiwell reactors for heat block thermocycling of samples comprising an array of small-volume wells of identical height with similarly shaped sample wells formed in the top surface of the heat block of the thermocycler are provided. The multiwell plates are preferentially vacuumformed out of a 30-50 micron thick thermoplastic film and can be used for rapid, oil-free temperature cycling of small (1-10 mu l) volume samples. <IMAGE>
