The permanent clear heat seal provides a secure sealing option for thermal cycling and sample disposal. When heat sealed, the aggressive adhesive layer ensures tight sealing that can withstand water bath cycling. The clear polymer film also allows inspection of sample wells.
Key Features and Benefits
- Strong permanent adhesive — forms a permanent bond with polypropylene PCR plates
- Fully validated — minimal sample evaporation when used with the PX1™ PCR plate sealer
- Solvent resistant — helps prevent seal breakdown when reagents containing high DMSO concentrations are used
Bio-Rad's Heat Sealing Films and Foils
Bio-Rad offers several heat sealing films and foils, each of which is optimal for specific PCR applications.
|Optically clear heat seal
||Best suited for thermal cycling and real-time PCR applications when a clear, peelable seal is desired
|Permanent clear heat seal
||Provides the strongest heat sealing option and is ideal for thermal cycling experiments where seals do not need to be removed
|Pierceable foil heat seal
||Ideal for thermal cycling and workflows requiring a pierceable seal, such as Droplet Digital™ PCR applications
|Peelable foil heat seal
||Best for thermal cycling and sample storage
