fuente / crisol
Explanation:
Hola mocla,

se trata de pequeñas fuentes (en el sentido de contenedor hueco), tarritos que se utilizan en laboratorio. La palabra "fuente" me parece buena, aunque recuerdo haber utilizado "crisol" para denominar lo mismo hace unos años en el instituto.

Suerte!

llenar todos los huecos alrededor


Explanation:
Me da la idea (ya que se trata de malaria) que quizá podría ser "llenar todos los huecos alrededor del...".

Sin mayor contexto, no sé que puede ser "plate".

Espero esto te ayude:-)

explanation


Explanation:
Las "multiwell plates" son esas bandejas que se usan en los laboratorios para hacer cultivos, que tienen múltiples recipientes.

multiwell plate: See microtiter plate, microtitre plate.

microtiter plate, microtitre plate: Sample holding device used in combinatorial chemistry and high throughput screening for cloning of PCR products and construction of cDNA libraries in expression vectors. Comes in 96, 384, 1536 and 3456- well formats

Acá hay una imagen de un “multiwell plate”:

Viendo cómo es, verás que es perfectamente posible "llenar los recipientes/tubos ubicados en el borde de la plate (placa? soporte?)". Lo lamento, pero no tengo idea del nombre específico.

Espero que te oriente, saludos,

Patricia

pocillos


Explanation:
I found this on eurodicautom:

well of the Elisa plate
Spanish Term pocillo de placa ELISA

English Term multiple-well plate
Spanish Term placa de pocillos

this is talking about a little (usually plastic) platform with many small wells or pits in them for doing chemical reactions such as ELISA. these are used in any molecular biology lab or wherever ELISA, PCR, etc. are performed. ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) would be used in your malaria research lab to detect plasmodium (the causative agent of malaria) or antibodies to it in the blood of patients or research subjects. i've used these techniques in labs a few times.

this is from a website reporting on an Elisa de competicion:

"Inmediatamente después se distribuyen volúmenes de 50 µl del antígeno diluido en un número apropiado de pocillos de fondo plano de una miniplaca ELISA de adherencia proteica fuerte, a razón de dos pocillos por suero problema. Se golpean ligeramente los costados de las miniplacas para asegurar que el antígeno se distribuye de manera uniforme en el fondo de cada pocillo. A continuación, y tras haber sellado las placas, se incuba a 37°C durante 1 hora en un agitador rotatorio. Después se lavan los pocillos tres veces con PBS 0,002 M, pH 7.4."
