We are just about to start attempting some RAPD experiments here with our
new PCR rig. We have a thermal cycler which accepts 0.2ml tubes, or 96 well
plates. For best value, we are going use 96 well plates.
We are curious: What kind of plates do people use?
Are PVC or polystyrene microtiter plates in favour? Which supplier or
manufacturer is favored? What kind of price is reasonable?
Also: What kind of oil do people use? Who supplies? What price? Is any
particular brand better (or worse) than others?
Thanks very much!
