Overview
  • Heat sealing is a quick and cost effective method of plate sealing
  • Our Gas Permeable Clear Heat Seal 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 Gas Permeable Clear Heat Seal 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 Gas Permeable Clear Heat Seal has a wider seal integrity temperature range, from -80°C to 110°C, than our Gas Permeable Heat Seal Mark 2
  • 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 4s3™ Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer
  • Also available in roll format compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer
