Heat seals for PCR, storage & life science applications
Porvair Sciences new range of aluminium heat seals for PCR, storage, and life science applications are engineered to an exact thickness and come colour-coded to enable easy identification of the different types.
In addition, the pre-cut foil sheets are marked to ensure that they are always used the right way up, minimising possible damage to the sealing head of a thermal heat sealer which can occur when a foil is inserted the wrong way up. Four different foils are available: a 20 micron foil, colour coded green, designed for very easy piercing by robotic liquid handling or pipette tips; a re-sealable 38 micron foil, colour coded blue, that is easily pierced as well as peelable ; a 70 micron non-piercable foil, colour coded red, that offers good tear strength and has an easily pealed polyester backing ; a 85 micron foil, colour coded black, for heavy duty use including storage and transport applications.
