Caps and Adhesives
It is of the greatest importance that you select the best sealing option available for your (q)PCR plate and application.
- Would you just like to seal the plate during the PCR reaction, or store it afterwards?
- Do you want to be able to pierce the seal with a pipette tip, or not?
- Do you want to use a reusable seal?
- Do you want the seal to be adhesive, or do you want to use a heat seal principle?
All these questions will be answered in the table below. It will help you to make exactly the right choice between the different seals.
