Ziath has launched impressiOn - a versatile semi-automatic device designed to take the strain out of applying friction sealing mats or septum sealing caps to SBS format tube racks.
It is essential that tube racks can be securely sealed in order to avoid contamination and evaporation thereby maintaining the integrity of your samples.
impressiOn is claimed to set an industry benchmark for high integrity, cost-effective sealing of single-use SBS format tube racks. Simple and quick to operate, users place the rack or plate with its attendant friction mat or septum cap web in the drawer and push it firmly shut. Sealing is initiated using the single-action large start button before sophisticated electronics take over to apply pressure to force the septum seals down into each tube. Results are reproducible, faster and less likely to cause injury than trying to doing the task manually.
The compact unit requires only a 110v or 220v power supply to operate and is small enough to sit on most lab benches. The Ziath impressiOn will work with most commercially available septum cap mats and different manufacturers 2D-coded and uncoded tubes in SBS-format racks. Friction and septum seals for 96-, 48- and 24-tube plates have been shown to work well using the device. It is supplied with two rack adaptors to enable the sealing of shallow and deep racks. Alternative rack adaptors are available to suit specific manufacturers’ tube racks.
