The main advantage of the a4S is that it is independent from an external air supply, which gives it the flexibility to be used on standard lab benches as a stand-alone unit, or integrated within a robotic set-up. The sealer’s rapid heating element enables a fast start-up, and the stand-by function saves energy when the unit is not in use. The a4S sealer is compatible with a wide range of SBS footprint plates, including all PCR plate formats from 96 to 1536 wells, assay plates, deep well storage plates and microplates. Varying plate heights, from 3 mm to 60 mm can be accommodated, with minimal adjustment of the instrument. Plates are presented in the portrait format and the plate position on the shuttle allows good access for robotic integration up to roll change.
