Hermetic sealing of low reaction volume microtest plates
Heat Sealing Foil and Film ~ overview
Hermetic sealing of microtest plates, especially at low reaction volumes
Certified free of human DNA, DNase, RNase and PCR Inhibitor*1
Best protection against evaporation during PCR, especially with small reaction volumes
The Heat Sealing Foil and Heat Sealing Film each provide
100% evaporation prevention during PCR experiments and allow
safe and easy sample storage. In automated procedures the
aluminum-coated foil can be easily punctured with standard
pipette tips. The Heat Sealing Film is transparent and allows
monitoring of the sample in the plates. Heat Sealing Foil
is removed by simply peeling it off, both Heat Sealing Films
and Foils are best removed from microplates with the Foil
Stripper (not shown).

Heat Sealing Foil and Film ~ ordering
We have endeavoured to provide Australian catalogue numbers; however it would be prudent to verify any catalogue numbers taken straight from our site with POCD Scientific before using them to place an order.
Do the Eppendorf PCR consumables have a special grade of purity?
Yes. We certify our PC plates and sealing options with "PCR-Clean". This certificate stands for guaranteed freedom from human DNA, DNase, RNase and PCR inhibitors.
Can the deep well mats be autoclaved?
Yes. They can be autoclaved (1 bar, 20 minutes, 121 Â°C).
What is the meaning of the â€śCertified PCR Cleanâ€ť label?
For molecular-biological requirements Eppendorf offers a new standard for uniform purity specifications. All consumables marked with the "Certified PCR Cleanâ€ť label are guaranteed free of human DNA, DNase, RNase and PCR inhibitors. This new standard applies to 0.2 ml and 0.5 ml tubes, PCR Plate 96s, all options for plate sealing, in situ frames and deep well plates and mats.
I would like to seal my deep well plate with a heat sealing foil. Can I also puncture the foil with a multi-canal pipette?
Yes. With the "Pierce-it-Lite" heat sealing foil from Eppendorf this is possible without problems!
