Just awesome! It is worth paying for this sealer.

Application Area:

Sealing qPCR plates and ELISA plates

I use these to run a lot of PCR and qPCR, and obviously, we need to buy sealer frequently, which is kind of expensive. So our lab manager manages to get some cheap sealers. I had always trouble using the sealer, sometimes it does not stick well, often I get wrinkle/s in the plastic sealing. But Bio-Rad sealer is just awesome. It is worth paying for this product.

Choose from a wide range of pressure, adhesive, and heat-sealing films and foils for PCR plates and other microplates including:

  • Peelable, pierceable, or permanent seals
  • Seals optimized for PCR, qPCR, NGS, and sample storage
  • Automation-compatible seals and sealing accessories

Featured PCR Plate Seals

  • Microseal B PCR Plate Seals This optical sealing film features a strong adhesive that's effective from –40 to 110°C, providing secure plate sealing during cycling and sample storage. The Microseal B Plate Seal is ideal for qPCR and NGS library preparation. 
  • Microseal F Foil Seals Use Microseal F Foil Seals for thermal cycling, NGS library preparation, and sample storage. This seal remains effective down to –70°C, making ideal for cold storage. Its peelable and pierceable features enable easy sample retrieval.

* Validated with the PX1 PCR Plate Sealer

Chill-out Liquid Wax provides an excellent vapor barrier that may be used instead of mineral oil in thermal cyclers without heated lids. After cycling, the tubes are chilled below 10°C to harden the wax. The solid layer protects samples from spills or aerosol formation but is easy to penetrate with a pipet tip for sample retrieval.

  • Clear formulation for use in fluorescence assays such as real-time PCR
  • Bright red formulation for high visibilty when recovering reaction products

Note: Chill-out Wax is not recommended for sealing Microseal 384-Well PCR Plates.
