Sometimes great, sometimes awful!
Application Area: Applying gas permeable seals to deep well plates prior to incubation.
"The sealer itself is easy and intuitive to use, the integration with Agilent VWorks and Bravo system is good. However, there is a greater than 20% fail rate which makes this machine near useless as it shuts down the operation and requires operator supervision. Analogous to a toddler."
The Ultraseal PRO unit (formerly the Wasp), is an automated heat-applied microplate and tube rack sealer. The unit uses a roll of surface-modified aluminum or plastic film approximately 78mm wide and 610m long, the roll is positioned to the rear of the sealing section via a removable stand, and using a total inline method the film is pulled through the central unit, cut to between 125mm and 130mm in length and then applied to the plate top surface to create the seal between plate and film.
