Pierceable heat sealing foil, high solvent resistance, resealable, suitable for PCR / storage / shipping.

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

Pierce Heat Seal is compatible with polypropylene and polystyrene plates. This seal demonstrates good solvent resistance and can be used for low temperature and room temperature compound storage in DMSO and organic solvents.

Pierce Heat Seal can be pierced with a pipette tip manually, or by a liquid handling robot. This seal can be resealed by applying another Pierce Seal straight on top of a previously pierced seal.

This seal is available as sheets, for use with manual and semi-automated sealers, such as our 4s3™ Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer, and in multiple roll formats compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer. A blue stripe on the sheet foils clearly indicates the non-sealing surface, for ease of seal orientation and handling.


Pierce Heat Seal sheets are also available with a printed grid reference on the non-sealing surface; see the second image in the photo-reel.

    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.

    Universal Peel Heat Seal forms a complete seal to a plate enabling low temperature uses as well as high temperature uses, such as PCR (when used with a pressurised heated lid).

    The seal demonstrates moderate solvent resistance.

    Use of Universal Peel Heat Seal makes roll changes unnecessary even for customers using different microplate materials, because with minor adjustments of sealing parameters all common microplate materials can be sealed to.

    Universal Peel Seal is available as sheets, for use with manual and semi-automated sealers, such as our 4s3™ Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer, and in two roll formats compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer.

      Peelable heat sealing film, optically clear; suitable for qPCR and optical applications

      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 Heat Seal is an optically clear polymer film forming a peelable seal to polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene, polycarbonate and cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) plates. Samples can also be accessed by pre-piercing with a blade, needle or our Pierce Plate (4ti-0398).

      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. The Clear Heat Seal forms a complete seal to a plate enabling both low temperature uses, including low temperature storage, and high temperature uses, such as PCR (when used with a pressurised heated lid).


      This seal demonstrates moderate solvent resistance and can be utilised for short term compound storage at room temperature.


      It is available as sheets, for use with manual and semi-automated sealers, such as our 4s3™ Semi-Automatic Sheet Heat Sealer, and in multiple roll formats compatible with specified automated heat sealers, such as our a4S Automatic Roll Heat Sealer. Our sheet seals are inter-leaved with paper sheets to help denote which side is the sealing side and aid removal of one sheet at a time from the pack.


      For applications requiring high tensile strength (e.g. bead mill applications) please see our Clear Heat Seal Plus.
