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.
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.
