Positioning Microplates

microplate

Figure 1. Using a Microplate Alignment Guide. The microplate alignment guide should be placed in the front, left corner and should contact the bezel surrounding the scan surface. (P/N 926-72200 is shown.)

The plastic microplate alignment guide should be placed on the scan surface so the corner of the guide contacts the front, left corner of the bezel surrounding the scan surface. Push the guide into the corner until it contacts the bezel on both the front and left sides. Put the microplate on the scanning surface and slide it into place until it contacts both the front and left side of the alignment guide. The first well in the first row (A1) should be toward the back and left side of the alignment guide as shown (Fig. 1).

Microplates can be scanned in the Image Studio software using the Plate scan preset. Multiple microplates can be scanned at one time by drawing multiple scanning areas on the Acquire ribbon scanning bed graphic.
