A double sided black adhesive microplane film to facilitate the sealing, accessing (piercing) and resealing of VariStrips™™ (4ti-0753) prior to PCR.
The strips or plates are filled with reagents and sealed with Pierce Seal (4ti-0530) resulting in lowest evaporation and best possible long-term storage. With the use of a pierceable seal, samples can easily be added at the point of diagnostic use.
The protective InterSeal makes sure there will be no damage to the Pierce Seal during transportation. The InterSeal is overlaid and the strips or plates processed with the Plate Cutter (4ti-3000) into individually sealed strips.
The strips can then be transported and opened at a customer site by peeling off the protective layer of the InterSeal and accessing the sample through the Pierce Seal. The strips can then be resealed with a foil or film which is applied to the exposed black adhesive without the need for a heat sealer.
