ApplicationsApplying individually cut adhesive seals and cap mats to plates and racked tubes. Provides individual sealing options for liquid handling and single tube accessiblity in addition to sealing entire plates and blocks for storageDesigned to provide sealing consistency in low to medium throughput labs. Heat sealing offers superior sample protection of storage and reaction plates in applications including compound storage, sample archiving and PCR. Accomodates a wide range of heat seals including pierceable, optically clear and permanent. Semi-manual operationHigh throughput plate heat sealing applications where scale up to automation integration may be desired.High throughput plate heat sealing applications where scale up to automation integration may be desired.  Does not require an airline or vacuum source for operation.  Reduced noise.

Improved High Throughput with Cost-Saving Results

Multidrop dispenser workflow

The cost of high-throughput sample processing with automated liquid handlers (ALH) is an expense most labs can't afford. This new workflow solution is designed to save costs and improve the number of samples processed per week.  In the revised workflow, the Multidrop Combi Dispenser replaces the aspiration and dispense step. Instead of using a pipette for a mixing step, this is replaced by sealing the microplate, shaking for ~30 seconds, and spinning for ~30 seconds. With the dispensing speed of the Multidrop Combi Dispenser and with the 4 plate positions of the Compact Digital Microplate Shaker, labs can process 4 plates per reagent faster than it would take using an ALH.
