Overview

Heat sealing membrane, limits evaporation, peelable, pierceable; suitable for cell culture, seed and insect storage

  • Heat sealing offers a 100% effective method for plate sealing for a complete seal integrity, as well as being quick and cost effective
  • Our Gas Permeable Heat Seal Mark 2 is made from a woven material and is designed for use in cell culture, due to its porous nature
  • The small pore size (<20 µm) of this material enables gas exchange, per 24 hours of >20 g/m², whilst evaporation is reduced to a minimum
  • The seal is compatible with polypropylene, polystyrene and cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) plates
  • It 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)
  • Gas Permeable Heat Seal Mark 2 can be utilized for effective overnight incubations, during which it demonstrates significant reductions in evaporation compared to lids
  • It can also 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 multiple roll formats compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer
