Precut Pierceable Films for Automation

Wrightwood, CA. February 16, 2006. New patented X-PierceTM sealing films from Excel Scientific support automation and robotic applications. The vinyl films with a thin adhesive layer protect samples in 96-well microplates from evaporation and contamination. A precut hairline "X" pattern over each well creates four flaps that bend easily when pushed by a pipet tip or robotic probe. This permits access to samples without coring from penetrating the film or fouling from contacting adhesive. Flaps return to their original position after sampling for continued protection. Two removable end tabs and 96 printed well guides assist in positioning the film rapidly on the plate.
