Agilent Automation has released a microplate sealing reference guide for laboratories looking to optimise microplate sealing processes to safeguard the integrity of their samples.
The free document is entitled 'Reference Guide for Optimal Thermal Microplate Sealing' and is available from Agilent sales offices or as a downloadable PDF.
It will be of interest to those currently sealing microplates as well as those thinking about investing in a microplate sealing instrument.
Achieving an optimal microplate seal depends on many factors, including microplate design, construction material, batch-to-batch plate production consistency, microplate features, sealing parameters and the type of seal used.
The 16-page guide includes a microplate sealing tips section, information on how to optimise sealing parameters when thermal sealing, a FAQ section and an electronic PDF form designed to facilitate the capture of key information helpful when requesting technical and applications support.
