Quick & Effective Microplate Sealing

Porvair Sciences announce a new range of fast to apply and highly effective microplate adhesive seals for labs that are short on time and may not have access to automated sealing instruments.

Adhesive seals offer an inexpensive and easy way to seal microplates for transport or to prevent contamination and evaporation. Porvair Sciences adhesive films come in a variety of formats to suit most applications.

All are manufactured from top quality materials and tested to provide the strongest seal required with the necessary characteristics to perform in different situations such as peeling after adhesion, piercing to recover samples, or being gas permeable but resistant to evaporation or solvents. In addition, clear seals are available for optical applications.

Choosing the correct combination of seal and closure device for different types of microplates is important to achieving best laboratory practice and to avoid unnecessary work further downstream. For labs with lower plate sealing requirements - the Porvair Hand Applicator is ideal for firmly applying pressure to self-adhesive film and foil sheets resulting in a perfect seal every time. For higher throughput microplate sealing requirements - Porvair Sciences offer the Porvair Kbiosystems KAPS Adhesive Microplate Sealer, and sealing devices.
