The wells on a filter bottomed plate are porous and are designed to permit flow. If the plate is placed on a wet surface, liquid can potentially enter the wells, altering the volume of liquid in the wells, along with the concentrations of assay constituents. If the plate is placed on an absorbent surface, liquid will be lost from the wells due to wicking action.

Make sure that the plates are placed only a clean, dry, non-absorbent surfaces during loading and incubations. After washing, make sure to blot residual liquid droplets from the bottom of the plate with clean paper towels.
