Pierce Heat Seal Strong, strong heat sealing foil, peelable from COC plates, pierceable, suitable for PCR/ sample shipping/compound storage. Heat sealing is the gold standard method of plate and tube sealing. It prevents sample loss and maximises sample security, by facilitating a 100% complete seal and preventing evaporation, leakage and contamination.
The sealing performance of heat seals is superior to all other methods including cap, mat and adhesive sealing. The variability of sealing integrity seen when using adhesive seals, caps or mats is completely removed. The optimised sealing performance of a heat seal allows the use of smaller reagent volumes, leading to reagent cost savings and thus making heat sealing the most cost efficient sealing method for a wide range of applications.
Heat seals are available as sheets, for manual or semi-automatic heat sealers, as well as in roll formats for automated sealers. Heat sealing offers 100% effective sealing integrity and is a quick and cost-effective sealing solution. 4titude® sealing consumables are compatible with a wide range of heat sealers.
