    Derek, a skirtless PCR plate placed into the white 3700 plate holder
works just fine.  PE also has plastic racks with a top and bottom that
snap together and hold PCR strip tubes.  That rack fits into a base that
has the same footprint and dimensions as the Microamp tray and white
holder--well not that I've measured it but I've NEVER had problems using
the PCR plates or the tubes.
