Our pierceable foil heat seal provides a secure sealing option for standard and Droplet Digital™ PCR applications. This easily pierceable aluminum film enables sample retrieval from select wells. Microplates with pierced seals can be resealed with another pierceable foil heat seal on top.
Key Features and Benefits
- Compatible with Droplet Digital PCR — independently validated in the QX200™ Droplet Digital™ PCR System workflow
- 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
- User friendly — colored stripe clearly identifies sealing surface
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
