Universal Peel Heat Seal

Universal, peelable heat sealing foil with wide material compatibility, suitable for low temperature storage, high temperature uses and PCR

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

Our Universal Peel Heat Seal is a laminate seal compatible with PP, PE, PS, COC and PC plates, providing the highest flexibility in plate material choice. Sample access is possible by peeling from the compatible materials and also by piercing the seal with needles, but not with plastic tips. It is resealable by applying another Universal Peel Heat Seal directly on top of a previously pierced seal.

Strips of 8 rectangular wells, polypropylene, open bottom, optically clear sides

The Phytostrip, a novel seedling growth device has been developed together with the University of Lancaster for the specific application of plant phenotyping.

It features an 8 well strip with open bottomed wells and flattened polished sides for easy visualization of the well content. The distance between the wells is the same as 96 well PCR plates and the outer dimensions are compatible with the use of SBS footprint microplates and reservoirs for support or incubation.

Random Access Plates & Seals

Random Access (RA) plates provide the greatest flexibility in PCR plates. Each well is moulded into a rigid frame suitable for use with automation. Once containing your sample or reagents, plates can be sealed using random access heat seals resulting in filled wells which can be removed from the plate as required.

Our Random Access 96 Well Skirted PCR Plates feature 96 individual tubes in plate format, low profile, 0.1 ml clear polypropylene tubes.

The Random Access Pierce Seal Strong features 96 individual foil seal spots.

Low Binding Plates with Ultra-Low DNA Binding Properties

    Sensitive applications such as Next Generation Sequencing sample preparation applications demand the highest quality consumables. Low binding polypropylene tubes allow for multiple incubation and transfer steps without sample loss.

      4titude®’s new Low Binding plates are made of selected low bind polymers, no coating is used to achieve the binding characteristics. The plates are tested under a broad temperature range to show maximum DNA recovery after low temperature storage and high temperature incubation. They are ideally suited for sensitive applications with ultra-low DNA input such as NGS sample preparation and library construction as no DNA gets lost during incubation steps and sample transfer.

      96 Well Assay Plate, Pyramid Flat Bottom

        1.0 ml square wells, pyramid flat bottom, polystyrene

          This plate has a unique shape of the well bottom with a very flat central part. The pyramid shape allows for a lower dead volume when used in automation. Centrifugation leads to a pellet in the central part of the well rather than a corner.

          We are offering the plate in clear, black and white polystyrene suitable for a wide range of applications including imaging, fluorescence and luminescence assays.

          Thermal Test Film

            With thermosensitive layer, for checking the uniformity and reproducibility of your heat sealer's heating block

              4titude®'s Thermal Test Film (TTF) can be used in conjunction with a roll fed (e.g. a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer) or sheet fed (e.g. 4s3 Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer) heat sealer to check the uniformity and reproducibility of the heat sealing block of the instrument. The film can be used to effectively test the temperature of the heating block between 160 – 200°C.

              Clear Seal Plus

                Optically clear, suitable for sealing of microplates during homogenisation or disruption of seeds and other material, peelable

                  The excellent tensile strength of this seal enables its use for sealing of microplates during homogenisation or disruption of seeds or other material such as bead mill applications. Clear Seal Plus forms a complete seal to a plate also enabling short term sample storage.

                  Pierceable Film 384

                    Peelable and pierceable film with red adhesive, 384 cross-cut, adhesive-free windows, compatible with 384 well plates, suitable for auto sampling

                      This strong adhesive seal was developed to facilitate easy sample removal with a manual or automated system. The seal is made from a teflon film and a red adhesive applied across the underside of the seal, except for 384 windows which align to the 384 wells of a plate. The optical windows are cross-cut, allowing for easy access to the sample wells with a tip or probe with minimal pressure.

                            96 Deep Well Storage Microplates for use with Magnetic Separators

                              1ml round wells, V shaped bases, clear polypropylene

                                These 96 deep well storage microplates are especially designed for use with magnetic separators for bead separation protocols. Due to the special shape of the stacking ribs, the plate sits much lower on the magnetic separator than standard round well plates thus facilitating the speed and efficiency of the separation process.
