The Kbiosystems Chameleon

kbiosystems Sealing Series of automated and semi automated systems offer the ideal
entry level automation laboratories require for a reliable, consistent plate and tube
Offering complete versatility, the sealer Series will work with a wide range
of plates, tube racks and custom applications shallow and deep well
formats, and custom mouldings.
Our latest range of seals support polystyrene, polypropylene and CoC &
CoP plate formats with a range of film substrates please contact us for
further details.
The Chameleon XT unit is an automated heat applied micro plate and
tube rack sealer. The unit uses a roll of surface modified aluminium or
plastic film approx. 78mm wide and up to 610m long, the roll is positioned to
the rear of the sealing section via a removable stand, using a total
inline method the film is pulled through the main unit, cut to between
125mm and 130mm in length and then applied to the plate top surface
to create the seal between plate and film.
Constant time and pressure lead the way in
sealing techniques, kbiosystems developed the
first fully automated production sealers way back
in 1994 and still are considered the premier
application specialist amongst users and
integrators alike.
System operation is designed to efficiently apply
a heat activated sealing film to a micro well plate
or tube rack top surface. By pulling and
maintaining control of a reel of film cutting to the
desired length and by means of heat and time
based variables apply the film to achieve the
seal. The unit is both pneumatically and
electrically operated and hence will require both
supplies to be readily available.
