ProPlate Assembly & Disassemly Delrin Snap Clips


Q:   We would like to use the ProPlate (16 well module) system for culturing cells. Can we use ProPlate for this application, and how are they best sterilized?

A: You can autoclave the ProPlate materials, after first removing the thin adhesive layer between the silicone and the polycarbonate superstructure. Do not autoclave the delrin snap clips. Stainless steel spring clips may be autoclaved. After careful assembly in the laminar flow hood, ProPlate modules are inserted into culture dishes, lidded and placed into a CO2 incubator. I have done this many times, my media usually contains Pen/Strep.
