Consumables - 3.4 Plates

firefly is compatible with skirted 96 and 384 plates including deepwell blocks.

IMPORTANT: Only use the exact plate types specified in a protocol as the movements of the firefly heads will be correct for those plates. If you need to use alternatives, you will need to revise the plate settings (see section 7.2) in the protocol first.

If you cannot find the plates you want to use when you try to swap the plate type, check if they are available through Community Labware (see section 8).

If they are not, and you need to use a specific non-standard type e.g. trough plates or 48 well plates, contact reliance (see section 13) for advice.
