Highly Parallelized Oxygen Monitoring in 96-well Microtiterplate
The OxoPlate OP96C is a beta-irradiated 96-well flat bottom microplate made of polystyrene. An oxygen sensor is integrated on the bottom of each well. The sensors can be read out in parallel from the bottom side using a commercially available fluorescence reader.
- User-defined batch calibration
- For use with conventional microplate fluorescence readers
- High throughput screening

Are the fluorescence intensities I get from the SensorPlate with my reader sufficient for a good measurement? How do I know that my reader gives precise results with the SensorPlates? How often do I have to calibrate the SensorPlates with my reader? I formerly used the Oxygen BioSensor (OBS) from BD. Can I use the OxoPlate as a substitute? I try to investigate oxygen consumption in my cell culture. However, the oxygen level stays at 100 % O2. Is there something wrong with the SDR measurements, and what can I do? Is my microplate reader compatible to the SensorPlates? The filters of my reader do not exactly match the combination in the SensorPlates' technical data. Nevertheless, can I use them? The intensities I get with the SensorPlates are very low for my reader. How can I enhance them? What is the time of delivery? Which substances can interfere with the optical O2, pH and CO2 measurements? Why are the fluorescence intensities and ratios I get with my reader different from the ones in the SensorPlate manual?
