Peelable heat sealing film, optically clear, with 3 mm slits for gas transfer; suitable for insect studies, seed storage

Heat sealing is a quick and cost effective method of plate sealing. Our Gas Permeable Clear Heat Seal is based on our Clear Heat Seal, with the addition of 3 mm slits across the width of the seal. These slits render the seal gas permeable, whilst retaining evaporation to a minimum, compared to the use of lids.

The Gas Permeable Clear Heat Seal is compatible with polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene and cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) plates. The seal can be removed by peeling, or it can be pierced with a pipette tip manually, using a liquid handling robot or with our Pierce Plate (4ti-0398).

The Gas Permeable Clear Heat Seal has a wider seal integrity temperature range, from -80 °C to 110 °C, than our Gas Permeable Heat Seal Mark 2. It can be used for insect and seed storage, as it enables gas exchange, whilst providing an inert surface with no adhesive to interfere with the well contents.

The Gas Permeable Clear Heat Seal is available as sheets, for use with manual and semi-automated sealers, such as our 4s3™ Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer, and in roll format compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer.
