Optically Clear Heat Seal #1814030


Package of 100 optically clear heat seals

The optically clear heat seal provides a secure sealing option for standard and real-time PCR applications. This clear polymer film enables easy inspection of sample wells. The seal is peelable pre- and post-cycling, allowing easy sample retrieval when desired.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Ideal for optical assays — high light transmission
  • Excellent for qPCR — low levels of autofluorescence
  • Fully validated — minimal sample evaporation when used with the PX1 PCR plate sealer
  • Versatile — compatible with a variety of PCR plastic materials, including polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene, and some cyclic olefin copolymer materials

Additional Details

  • Seal integrity from –80 to 110°C
  • Seals are packaged interleafed with dust-free paper for easy handling
  • Suggested Heat Sealing Parameters guide is available to help minimize optimization steps
  • Certified RNase and DNase free

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.

Heat Seal Application
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
