Overview

Thin polyester heat sealing film, easily pierceable with autosampler needles/ABI® 3730; suitable for PCR, 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 3730 is an optically clear polyester backed film, forming a pierceable seal to polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene and cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) plates
  • 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
  • Its pierceability renders it useful for automation and for use on needle, capillary and tip based liquid handling systems
  • It is effective on the ABI® 3730 capillary sequencer, removing the need for the use of expensive septa mats
  • The Clear Heat Seal 3730 forms a complete seal to a plate enabling moderately low and high temperature uses, including PCR when using a pressurized heated lid thermal cycler
  • It demonstrates a moderate solvent resistance and can be utilized for short term compound storage
  • This seal is only available in multiple roll formats compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer
  • A perforated roll is available, for easy removal of sheets, for use with manual and semi-automated sealers, such as our 4s3™ Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer
Key Features
  • Permanent seal
  • Easily pierceable with autosampler needles/ABI® 3730
  • Seal integrity range: -20 °C to 80 °C (or 110 °C when used with pressurized heated PCR lid)
  • Moderate solvent resistance
  • Optically clear
  • Free from DNase, RNase, human genomic DNA, and endotoxin/pyrogen

Use

  • Seals polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene and cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) plates
  • Suitable for capillary sequencers and automated liquid handlers, e.g. ABI® 3730
  • Suitable for PCR and qPCR, and short term storage
