Overview

Semi-automatic sheet heat sealer compatible with a wide range of seals and microplates, PCR and assay plates, as well as storage plates

  • With variable temperature and time settings, sealing conditions are easily optimized to produce a 100% seal, eliminating sample loss
  • Plate and seal are placed on the holder, the "Operate" button pressed and the drawer automatically closes
  • The sealing process is controlled by an electric mechanism; this unique feature eliminates operator variation, giving a consistent seal every time and reducing the damage caused to microplates by over-sealing.

Key Features

Real time display

  • Rapid heating element to allow for a quick start up within minutes
  • Real time temperature display to allow monitoring of heating process

Energy saving functions

  • When idle, unit automatically switches to standby mode: heating element temperature reduces to 60 °C to save energy
  • When idle for longer periods, it automatically switches off for added safety
  • Triggering of standby and switch off modes can be adjusted to suit user’s needs

Plate adapters and sealing aids

  • Unique and cost saving adapter system
  • Included standard plate carrier (4ti-0615) for sealing deep well plates and most skirted plates
  • Additional plate carrier (4ti-0625, optional extra) for all 96 well PCR plates
  • Both plate carriers can be combined for easier handling of shallow well plates, e.g. 384 well PCR plates
  • For better sealing of films with a tendency to curl, 4titude offers sealing aids
  • A weighted platen (4ti-0602) for use with deep well blocks can be ordered separately
  • A sealing frame for use with all other plate designs is supplied when ordering the optional 4ti-0625 adapter
  • The sealer allows for sealing of Random Access Plates with the corresponding Random Access Heat Seals using the Random Access adapter (4ti-0613)

Plate formats

  • SBS standard polypropylene and polystyrene plates and deep well blocks
  • PCR plates including skirted, semi-skirted and non-skirted formats
  • Random Access PCR Plates

RS-232 port for automation integration

  • RS-232 port enables unit integration into most automated systems
