# 96 and 24 well plate - (Mar/30/2005 )

What is the difference between a 96 and 24 well plate? Why the volume in a well (about 150ml) of a 96 well plate is larger than a well (2ml) of a 24 well plate ?

Thanks.

hi

volume of a 96well is 150µl

the difference is the diameter of the well. in a 24well diameter is about 4fold greater.

So it is 150ul and not 150ml? If the well of a 24 well plate has greater diameter then why it has less volume ?
