Overview

Gas permeable adhesive film, optically clear, with adhesive free windows, peelable, pierceable, sterile; suitable for cell culture

  • This unique seal has optically clear adhesive free windows; these windows can be imaged through, and also allow for gas exchange
  • The clear film is made of a porous material which allows for a uniform air and CO₂ exchange, whilst acting as a moisture barrier and preventing evaporation
  • The seal is coated with a strong adhesive (except for the optical windows) which has a high sealing integrity
  • This ensures a reliable seal and prevention of well-to-well contamination
  • The gas permeable seal enables long term incubations without intervention, whilst allowing for imaging through the optically clear windows
  • This can reduce the risk of sample contamination, evaporation and can improve your experimental workflow
  • Use of this seal within plate readers can prevent moisture release into the sensitive equipment
  • A number of plate reader manufacturers recommend the use of the 4titude Moisture Barrier Seal 24,96,384 (Gas Permeable Moisture Barrier Seal)
  • For all adhesive seals, the best sealing results are achieved using the hand held Adhesive Seal Roller (4ti-0502)
