96-Well Plate Instructions

For large batches of samples please use 96-well plates.

  • Leave well H12 empty for sequencing samples and A01 empty for fragment analysis samples. This is for our internal control sample.
  • Clearly mark the orientation of the plate, i.e. Top left-hand corner = well A1 and write your name on the plate.
  • For full plates (95 samples) please use Applied Biosystems Micro-Amp Reaction Plates (P/N N8010560) or Axygen 96-well PCR Amplification Plate (P/N ACYPCR-96M2-HS). A discount applies to full plates – see Prices for details.
  • If sending in less than 95 samples in a 96-well plate (partial plate) it is important that the samples are placed in the wells of column 1 (or Run 1) before moving on to the next consecutive column. The 3130xl automatically makes injections from every well in two consecutive columns. The 96-well plate-mapping diagram below illustrates the order of loading. Note: Blank wells may incur a charge where samples are not organized into full columns.
  • Enter the sample name in the corresponding well/grid position when completing the Request Form.
