How to Reference Microplate Standards

Because SLAS is not a standardizing organization, but a society that provides a working group the ability and platform to standardize along with ANSI (the American National Standards Institute), in the event that the ANSI/SLAS Microplate Standards are to be used in advertisements, product releases, or abstracts, the standards must be referred by:

ANSI/SLAS 1-2004: Microplates — Footprint Dimensions
ANSI/SLAS 2-2004: Microplates — Height Dimensions
ANSI/SLAS 3-2004: Microplates — Bottom Outside Flange Dimensions
ANSI/SLAS 4-2004: Microplates — Well Positions
ANSI/SLAS 6-2012: Microplates — Well Bottom Elevation
(Either singularly, or as a whole)

If in dire circumstances where spacing is a major issue, the only other verbiage that will be allowed is: Meets the Standards ANSI/SLAS 1-2004 through ANSI/SLAS 4-2004
