    I used a white tray to work on for my antibiotics investigation. What is the tray called? :frown:

    I believe what you are referring to is called an "ELISA test plate" :smile:

    I'm really not sure what you're referring to. Are you sure it isn't just a tray?

    I use trays such as these available from Atlantic Nuclear Corp. for assays using radiolabeled substances. They have a clear disposable liner molded to fit the lipped base and are designed to contain spills and facilitate clean-up/decontamination . The ones I use are yellow to designate radiation hazard, but they are available in white, perhaps this is at least similar to what you were using?
