  • Application Area:Compound Dispensing

"This is a mini workhorse that has paid for itself multiple times over. The PlateLoc lets you adjust the time and temperature of heat sealing, and therefore works on a variety of plate types. One caveat is that we tried using heat seal tape from a secondary vendor and had some issues. So stick with the heat seal tape that comes from the original manufacturer. If the instrument has issues, the instrument can be swapped with a loaner or a service representative can come onsite, helping minimize down time."

  • Application Area:Sealing Polypropylene And Polycarbonate Storage Plates

"This heat sealer is very easy to operate and maintain. The heat sealing allows for a very consistent bond that is durable at our -20C storage temperature. Some considerations are that this instrument requires an external compressor and the heat seal can degrade the well chimney over time. As a result, a stack of ~40 plates that have been sealed 10-20 times may one or two mm shorter than 40 new plates. This can create issues for top stacking robots such as the Twister or Orbitor."

Fast, easy, reliable microplate sealing

  The Agilent PlateLoc Thermal Microplate Sealer has distinguished itself as the premier thermal sealer through its speed, small footprint, ease of use, and dependability, automatically accommodating deep-well, assay, PCR and compound storage microplates. The PlateLoc Sealer is ideal for robotic integration, featuring an extended-travel plate stage, RS-232 serial port, and ActiveX control. In order to minimize system downtime when replenishing consumables, the instrument features an easy-to-access, top-loading seal roll support.
