Overview

Peelable heat sealing film, optically clear; suitable for qPCR and optical applications

  • Heat sealing offers a 100% effective method for plate sealing for a complete seal integrity, as well as being quick and cost effective
  • Our Clear Heat Seal is an optically clear laminate film forming a peelable seal to polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene, polycarbonate and cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) plates
  • Samples can also be accessed by pre-piercing with a blade, needle or our Pierce Plate (4ti-0398)
  • The optical clarity of this seal enables its use for sealing plates required for imaging use, including fluorescent detection methods such as qPCR and colorimetric assays
  • The Clear Heat Seal forms a complete seal to a plate enabling both low temperature uses, including low temperature storage, and high temperature uses, such as PCR (when used with a pressurized heated lid)
  • This seal demonstrates moderate solvent resistance and can be utilized for short term compound storage at room temperature
  • This seal is available as sheets, for use with manual and semi-automated sealers, such as our 4s3™ Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer
  • Also available in multiple roll formats compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer
  • Our sheet seals are inter-leaved with paper sheets to help denote which side is the sealing side and aid removal of one sheet at a time from the pack
  • For applications requiring high tensile strength (e.g. bead mill applications) please see our Clear Heat Seal Plus
Key Features
  • Peelable
  • Seal integrity range: -80 °C to 80 °C (to 110 °C with a pressurized heated PCR lid)
  • Optically clear
  • Free from DNase, RNase, human genomic DNA, and endotoxin/pyrogen

Use

  • Applications: imaging, fluorescent detection, and colorimetric assays
  • Suitable for PCR and qPCR
  • Seals polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene, polycarbonate and cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) plates

Options

  • Sheet format: 125 x 78 mm, to fit all standard SBS footprint PCR and qPCR plates, microplates, assay and storage plates, from 12 well to 1536 well
  • Roll format: available in a variety of roll dimensions, to suit your choice of automatic heat sealing equipment
  • Non-sterile as standard; sterilization available upon request
  • Also available with our FrameSeal™ technology, a disposable, rigid, plastic frame perfect for use with a robotic gripper to be used within an automation cell
