This article was published in January 2010 in Lab Manager Magazine. A part of the Evolution series, the article traces the development of the microplate as the month’s main topic.
The article documents how the microplate has become an indispensable laboratory device in the past 60 years. The article traces the roots of the microplate in 1951 when the first microplate was made by constructing 6 rows of 12 wells into a block or acrylic to one of the most important developments made by the Society of Biomolecular Screening (SBS) that set a standard for microplates. These standards have led to the development of today’s microplates.
