Thermal Plate Sealers
For laboratories having to seal medium numbers of microplates the Mat Capper offers an affordable solution. Compact and portable, the Mat Capper is very easy to use, requiring only one operation of the system to produce an accurate and tight seal on a wide range of both collection and shallow well.
The MicroLute™ De-capper is for use with any MicroLute™ plate fitted with a drain cap. It enables the quick and easy removal of the protective lower drain cap, enabling the plate.
Thermal plate sealers
Of the various methods for sealing microplates, heat sealing has become the preferred option. It creates an air tight and chemically-resistant seal without the complications of adhesives being applied to a plate. Porvair Sciences has developed a range of units to meet the needs of low, medium
and high throughput laboratories for microplate sealing.
MicroSeal Manual Thermal Plate Sealer
The MicroSeal is designed to be compact, easy to use and ergonomic. Heat sealing a wide range of plates is quick and simple. Heat sealing protects precious samples from evaporation and contamination when performing PCR or during storage. A built-in thermostat prevents overheating of the MicroSeal and with its small footprint and ease of use, the new MicroSeal is the obvious choice for manual sealing of PCR plates and microplates. With a pre-set temperature of 170C, ideal for most common sealing applications, and dual LED status display for power and heating, the MicroSeal is safe and easy to use. An ergonomic pull down action allows single action sealing of most common plate types. Additional adaptors are available for specific plates.
● Fast warm up time
● Consistent, single action sealing
● Pre-set temperature for ease of use
● Sealing Temperature 170°C
● Warm up time < 10 minutes
MiniSeal Plus semi-automatic heat sealer
The new MiniSeal Plus builds on the proven track record of Porvair’s revolutionary MiniSeal semi-automatic microplate sealer to bring you greater comfort and safety in use, together with unmatched repeatability in sealing plates of many different types and sizes. Designed for laboratories needing to seal 20-40 plates per day, the MiniSeal Plus is compact, easy to use and simple to install. Unlike bigger automated sealers, MiniSeal Plus does NOT require a compressed air supply to operate. Instead, all operations are electronically controlled through the splashproof keypad, meaning the MiniSeal Plus can be installed, up to temperature and sealing your plates within minutes of unpacking. The compact footprint, about the size of a sheet of A4 or letter paper, means MiniSeal Plus will fit just about anywhere on your lab bench, or inside a fume hood if required.
Rapid heat-up, a real-time display of the sealing head temperature, automatic plate height detection and pre-cut sealing films combine to simplify plate sealing. The “drawer” design ensures quiet operation and eliminates any health & safety risks, whilst an energy saving mode protects the environment. Full microprocessor control allows you to programme the optimal sealing time and temperature for each plate type in use, whilst preventing damage caused by “over sealing”.
The MiniSeal Plus can be used with any standard SBS footprint plate up to 48mm high and with most currently available PCR plates. Adaptors may be required for operation with certain types of plates. Sealing can be achieved with plates formed from polystyrene, polypropylene and the new COC / COP cyclo-olefin polymers. Films come in a range of materials suitable for storage, transport, temporary or long-term sealing and piercing. Height of the MiniSeal Plus is just 310mm.
● Compact footprint
● No compressed air needed
● Semi-automatic operation
● Adjustable temperature and sealing time
● LED display of time, temperature and status
● Unique safety features
● Portable, lightweight design
● Dual voltage 110V/
