Product Information

A clear, peelable, non-sticky film with a strong pressure-activated adhesive, recommended for qPCR and other imaging techniques including crystallisation

This optically clear seal was specifically developed for optical applications, particularly qPCR. It is non sticky when removed from the packaging; this aids handling when wearing gloves. The adhesive is contained within small capsules, allowing light to pass through to ensure the optical clarity of the seal. When the seal is in position, pressure can be applied to burst the capsules, releasing a strong adhesive only where the seal touches the raised well rims of the plate - the rest of the seal area above the wells remains optically clear.

The qPCR Seal is also available in half plate size format to be used with our FrameStar® 192 Well Semi-Skirted PCR Plate.

IMPORTANT - Technical Note

This is a pressure-activated seal. The adhesive is released when pressure is applied firmly and evenly to the seal. Our Adhesive Seal Roller is ideal for use with this product. We also recommend the use of our Optical Film Compression Pad during PCR with this product.
