The Kube™ is our fully automated, robotic friendly thermal plate sealer.
With more than 15 years experience in the development of plate sealing technologies, LGC development engineers poured all their knowledge and experience into making this a truly robust and reliable heat sealer that delivers unsurpassed levels of speed, performance, flexibility, and ease-of-use.
Controlled through an intuitive on-board touch screen interface, or remotely via an RS 232 interface, the Kube software control and functionality goes beyond that of any competing instrument on the market. A highly versatile workhorse, the Kube has the ability to quickly heat seal a wide range of standard height and deepwell microplates, including 24, 48, 96, 384 and some 1536-well plates too. (Note: for optimum sealing efficiency of 1536 well plates, we recommend the Fusion laser seal technology).
The Kube heat sealer uses a patented alternative sealing surface – the FlexiBlock option - that utilises a highly optimised heat conductive rubberised block that conforms to the surface of the each plate forming a robust seal without damaging the microplate surface. A key benefit to using the FlexiBlock sealing option is that it becomes possible to heat seal a plate many more times (25+) as opposed to the standard heat seal block, which can re-seal no more than 5 times.
