Product Information

Suitable for use in ABI® 3730 sequencers, pierceable

Heat Sealing offers a 100% effective method for plate sealing for a complete seal integrity, as well as being quick and cost effective.

Our Clear Seal 3730 is an optically clear polyester backed film, forming a pierceable seal to polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene and cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) plates. The optical clarity of this seal enables its use for sealing plates required for imaging use, including fluorescent detection methods such as qPCR and colorimetric assays.

Its pierceability renders it useful for automation and for use on needle, capillary and tip based liquid handling systems. It is effective on the ABI® 3730 capillary sequencer, removing the need for the use of expensive septa mats.

The Clear Seal 3730 forms a complete seal to a plate enabling moderately low and high temperature uses, including PCR when using a pressurised heated lid thermal cycler. It demonstrates a moderate solvent resistance and can be utilised for short term compound storage.

Clear Seal 3730 is only available in roll format - multiple roll formats are available compatible with specified automated roll heat sealers, such as our a4S Roll Heat Sealer. A perforated roll is available, for easy removal of sheets, for use with manual and semi-automated sheet heat sealers, such as our 4s3™ Sheet Heat Sealer.
