Heat sealing is a quick and cost effective method of plate sealing. Our Clear Heat Seal, Peelable Film is based on our Clear Heat Seal, with the addition of 3mm slits across the width of the seal. These slits render the seal gas permeable, whilst retaining evaporation to a minimum, compared to the use of lids.
The Clear Heat Seal, Peelable Film is compatible with polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene and cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) plates. The seal can be removed by peeling, or it can be pierced with a pipette tip manually, using a liquid handling robot or with our Pierce Plate (4ti-0398).
The Clear Heat Seal, Peelable Film has a wider seal integrity temperature range, from -80°C to 110°C, than our Gas Permeable Heat Seal. It can be used for insect and seed storage, as it enables gas exchange, whilst providing an inert surface with no adhesive to interfere with the well contents.
This seal is available as sheets, for use with manual and semi-automated sealers, such as our Semi-Automated Sheet Heat Sealer. Also available in roll format compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our Automated Roll Heat Sealer.
