  • Compatible with 96 racked tubes
  • Place racked tubes in the AirFilm Thermal Sealer and position a sheet of AirFilm over the rack
  • Closing the drawer will start the automated thermal sealing process
  • When sealing is complete, the drawer opens presenting you with the sealed rack of tubes
  • Remove the rack from the sealer and gently remove PET backing sheet from the sealed tubes


Reduced Risk of Sample Damage During Sealing

  • Variable temperature operation; user selects sealing temperature and time, optimising sealing conditions for each sample type
  • Heat transfer during the sealing process is lessened by the embossed seal construction, which creates an air pocket between the seal and the tube
