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
