Precut Pierceable Sealing Films for Automation
- Protect samples and limit evaporation, short-term
- Temperatures -40°C to 90°C
- Special hairline X-cuts and thin adhesive prevent fouling or occlusion of probes and tips
- Sealing film reseals for continued sample protection after sampling
X-Pierce sealing films are 89 µm thick vinyl with a 18 µm thick adhesive, designed for temporary protection from contamination and evaporation for samples in 96-well plates. A precut “X” over each well creates four flaps that easily bend downward when pushed by a robotic probe or pipet tip, allowing sample access without coring or adhesive fouling. A thin adhesive layer and special hairline cuts separating the X-Pierce flaps combine to prevent probes from contacting adhesive and becoming occluded. The flaps return to their original position after sampling for continued protection. Dimension are 145.5 x 79.4 mm.
For long-term sample protection after sampling, a continuous sealing film should be applied as a second layer.
