Heat sealing offers a 100% effective method of plate sealing, for complete seal integrity, as well as being quick and cost effective. Our Polystyrene Foil Heat Seal produces a stronger seal to polystyrene plates than our standard Foil Heat Seal. It is compatible with polypropylene, polystyrene and polycarbonate plates.
This seal demonstrates moderate solvent resistance and can be used for low temperature compound storage, in DMSO and organic solvents, and short term room temperature storage. Polystyrene Foil Heat Seal can be pierced with a pipette tip manually, by a liquid handling robot, using our Pierce Plate (4ti-0398), or it can be removed by peeling. It can be resealed by applying another Polystyrene Foil Heat Seal directly on top of a previously pierced seal.
This seal is available as sheets, for use with manual and semi-automated sealers, such as our Semi-Automated Sheet Heat Sealer. Also available in multiple roll formats compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our Automated Roll Heat Sealer.
