Good plate sealing is essential to prevent evaporation of your sample. Follow the guidelines below to seal your plates right every time.
The MicroAmp® Optical Adhesive Film and MicroAmp® Clear Adhesive Film use a pressure-sensitive adhesive backing to adhere the cover to the 96- or 384-well plates. It is imperative that you use enough force to activate the pressure-sensitive adhesive to prevent evaporation from the wells. We recommend to use the MicroAmp® Adhesive Film Applicator to seal the films
The correct way to apply the film is as follows:
Step 1: Seal Across
Step 2: Seal Up and Down
Step 3: Seal Edges
Step 4: Inspect each well to make sure that each well edges are imprinted on the optical adhesive cover.
