New Microwell Plate Configurations to Increase Microwell Density

Tech ID: 21633 / UC Case 2011-574-0

Patent Status

Country Type Number Dated Case
United States Of America Issued Patent 9,095,852 08/04/2015 2011-574

Brief Description

Researchers at the University of California, Irvine have developed a process and method to increase microwell density by as much as twofold in a 2D imaging plane using 3-D arrangements of micro-well reactor plates.

Suggested uses

This new arrangement may be used in biochemical or biological reaction and assays that require the mointoring of fluorescence intensity or colorimetric changes within individual wells.


The primary advantage is that the density of the reactor wells per unit area are increased by as much as twofold.
