Use spot plates (also called reaction plates or culture plates) to perform reactions on a small amount of chemicals. Each features many depressions (or wells), either 12 or 24, in which to perform the reaction. The wells function as tiny test tubes.

The types of spot plates we sell for your scientific lab are made of porcelain and autoclavable polystyrene, plus a plastic microplate.

Porcelain: This one has 12 cavities, each about 20 mm in diameter at the top. Since it's white, it works well to observe color change reactions. It's durable, acid- and alkali-resistant, easy-to-clean, and autoclavable.

Polystyrene: These have 12 cavities, each about 20 mm in diameter. You get a pack of 12 easy to clean and autoclavable spot plates. Not for use with strong solvents.

Microplate: Made of clear plastic, these will serve you well in microchemistry experiments. The 24 flat-bottom wells each hold about 3 ml. The entire plate measures 3" x 5" overall.

While intended for chemistry, culture plates' unique design makes them useful for many purposes. One customer used his to observe the life cycle of insects. How else could you use them?
