New Semi-Automated Heat Sealer Delivers Consistent and Reliable PCR Plate Sealing

October 30, 2012 at 2:39 pm Leave a comment

Bio-Rad has leveraged its 20 years of experience in PCR to develop an innovative, semi-automated heat sealing system for PCR microplates. The new PX1™ PCR plate sealer helps deliver a perfect seal by removing human variability from plate sealing. This newly introduced system helps eliminate a common problem in the thermal cycling workflow — sample evaporation. Evaporation during PCR can lead to the loss of precious samples and valuable research time. Additionally, sample evaporation may result in poor experimental uniformity by permitting larger standard deviations among replicate samples, complicating data interpretation. The PX1 PCR plate sealer delivers uniform temperature and pressure across a seal and plate, ensuring that every well is perfectly sealed and protected against sample evaporation.
