Our Air-O-Seal is a hydrophobic gas permeable adhesive seal which seals assay and tissue culture plates, microplates and storage plates.
The Air-O-Seal prevents evaporation and contamination whilst enabling cells to breathe. It is made of a non-woven fibre with an acrylate adhesive layer for effective sealing.
The seal has a low moisture transfer rate and a porosity enabling gas exchange. Due to its paper-based material it should be used in wet conditions. The seal is suitable for cell culture and enables long term culture with significantly reduced evaporation. It is resistant to acids, DMSO, detergents, ethanol, glycerol, isopropanol and sodium hypochlorite (bleach).
