Microplate Sealer Description
A microplate sealer is a type of tool use to place a seal over a microplate. The goal of this seal is to keep the wells safe from any type of outside contamination. You will commonly find this type of sealer used in research labs, educational facilities, as well as in medical settings. In fact, they are found in most places where you will find microplate in use.
Features of microplate sealers
There are a number of different types of microplate sealer that are in use today. These include clear, permanent seals, removable seals, aluminum-based seals, as well as sterile and non-sterile seals. Each of the different types of seals can be used for different purposes. In most cases, you will be able to use a single microplate sealer with all of the various types of seals though.
The microplate sealers tend to be very simple to use even for those who have never used them in the past. They are quite user-friendly. Many of them have a very small footprint as well, and they are ergonomic.
When it comes time to choose a microplate sealer to rent, you want to think about a number of things including ease-of-use and the size of the machine. As mentioned, many of them are small and should not take up too much space in the lab. In addition, most of them are quite easy to use. Always take the time to look at the features offered for the various sealers to make sure that they are capable of performing up to your specifications. In most cases, a single sealer is enough for the entire lab. Of course this can vary based on how busy the lab is and the number of people working there.
Even though the microplate sealer is likely going to be able to work with any of the microplate seals you choose, this is not always the case. You will want to make sure that the sealer you get will work with the seals that you have.
Something else that you might want to consider when you are renting a microplate sealer is actually getting the microplate seals that you will need to go along with it. You want to purchase seals that are suitable for your particular job, and you want to have plenty of them on hand
