Deformable Well And Method
Inventors: David Beebe, David Guckenberger, Hannah Pezzi, Scott Berry
A deformable well structure for a microtiter plate and method are provided. The deformable well structure includes a sample container defining a well for receiving a sample therein. The sample received in the well has a concave meniscus. A deformation tool is engageable with the sample container and is moveable between a first disengaged position wherein the deformation tool is spaced from the sample container and a second, engaged position wherein the deformation tool engages and deforms at least a portion of the sample container such that the meniscus of the sample in the well is converted from concave to convex.
