They consist of 50μm thick clear polyester with a 41μm layer of a stronger adhesive formulated for improved protection against evaporation and leakage during thermal cycling. Intended for non-real-time PCR applications*. They are designed to fit inside the edge of raised-rim PCR plates. Each pack of films includes one sealing paddle (see photo) for ensuring a firm seal. ■■Heat resistant, recommended for temperatures from -40C to +120C * for real-time PCR, use ThermalSeal RT™ films - see page 134 ThermalSeal 2™ These improved films for classic thermal cycling applications consist of a 50 μm polyester film with a 41 μm layer of acrylic adhesive. Compared to the original ThermalSeal® films (on page 132), ThermalSeal 2™ films offer better adhesion, reduced evaporation, longer end tabs for easier handling, and less tendency to tear during removal from the plate. Each sealing film measures 79.4 x 139.7 mm and offers sufficient sealing area for all PCR plates. Length between the perforations with end tabs removed is 125.1 mm. (Not recommended for raised-rim plates; see ThermalSeal A™ films - left.) ThermalSeal 2 sealing films are not pierceable. For applications where piercing with pipette tips or robotic probes is required for product recovery, see AlumaSeal® sealing films on page 136. For real-time PCR applications where maximum optical clarity is required, see ThermalSeal RT™ and RTS™ sealing films on page 135. ■■Heat resistant, recommended for temperatures from -40 °C to +120 °C ■■Better adhesion; reduced evaporation ■■Longer end tabs for easier handling ■■Does not tear during removal from the plate ■■Easier to apply than aluminum foils, no tendency to roll back ThermalSeal® A Films for PCR and Storage Catalogue Number Description Pack Size TSA-100 ThermalSeal A, Non-sterile 100 ThermalSeal 2™ Catalogue Number Description Pack Size LW2726 ThermalSeal2, Non-Sterile 100 ThermalSeal® Sealing Films for PCR Plates n email order sales@alphalabs.co.uk n freefax order 0800 614249 133
