A device known as an automated microplate sealer automatically applies a seal to a microplate, shielding the wells from contamination from the outside world. Automated microplate sealers are helpful whenever microplates are utilised and are employed in research, educational, and medical labs.
A microplate sealer is a tool that seals off a microplate in order to safeguard and contain samples.
Sample wells are located in rectangular trays called microplates. Microplates have a standardised design that makes it simple to integrate into lab diagnostic equipment. They are capable of holding six to thousands of individual samples.
To stop contamination or leakage and to facilitate storage, a microplate sealer creates a barrier on top of the sample wells. Caps, strip caps, mats, and films are examples of barriers that adhere with adhesive or heat.
Aluminum, Mylar, Silicon, Polyester, Polyolefin, Polypropylene, and Rayon are examples of base materials. Most adhesives are made of acrylates. Seals have specific characteristics that make them suitable for specific purposes, like being pierceable, peelable, optically clear, solvent resistant, and gas permeable.
Global microplate sealing equipment market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
A new generation of compressor-free plate sealers has been introduced by Thermo Fisher Scientific. These sealers are intended to reduce the maintenance burden on operators while providing unmatched process customization capabilities, simple operation, and significant work efficiencies.
There is now a system available for use in biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and academic research labs that may streamline the plate sealing procedure and increase productivity and dependability for standalone and integrated robotic projects.
The new Thermo Scientific ALPS 5000 Plate Sealer will be on display at Booth #1105 at the San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, California, from January, during the SLAS2020 International Conference and Exhibition.
The Thermo Scientific ALPS 5000 is a fully electrically controlled system that was created to boost the effectiveness of the heat plate sealing process and provide the greatest amount of flexibility to handle high throughput applications.
When using conventional pneumatically driven equipment, the system is expected to reduce the requirement for the time-consuming and expensive replacement of expensive vacuum cups, onboard compressors, and compressed air lines.
