Product News: How to Seal Lab Samples Quickly and Securely: New Intrument Unveiled

17 Jan 2017


Porvair Sciences has announced the introduction of Autocapper - a versatile electronic applicator that enables friction sample seals to be quickly and securely applied to both microplates and microtube racks.

The simplicity of the Autocapper design, which features a drawer to hold your microplate and cap mat, aims to ensure highly reliable, high integrity sample sealing over many years’ service. Incorporating a powerful motor the Autocapper is able to apply sufficient force to fit cap mats of varying materials to most commercial available deep well plates.

A special feature of the Autocapper is its ability to apply sealing caps to 96 position bar coded microtube racks, accurately and reproducibly, giving a high integrity seal every time. The unit can be bolted down to a bench for extra stability and adaptors are available to also enable sealing of shallow well plates using the device.
