Visual Description

Upper highly reflective metallic with a gloss finish. Seal side burnished metal, duller but still shiny, less reflective.

Physical Properties
Foil, thermal seal. Resistant to high and low temperatures. Thick, quite easy to crease but still flexible. Temperature Range: -200℃ to +110℃.

Mass Loss

Confirming the materials ability to resist high temperatures. Results: Pass.
Details: Mass loss of solution evaluated after 30 cycles of 3 step PCR Programme. Equipment: ABI Thermocycler, Precision Balance.

Measuring the force required to push a standardised needle through the material via compression measuring equipment. Results: Fail.
Details 5 tests run using a standardised needle, ensuring that less than 10N is required to pierce the surface & access the wells. Equipment Instron 3343 Tensometer.

Burst Testing
Determining the materials adhesion to the plate. Results Pass.
Details Microplates are sealed and tested under pressure. Tests passed once achieved 2 bar of pressure or greater. Equipment Mini-burst 5.

Measuring the materials permanence of adhesion & its ability to be removed, via extension measuring equipment. Results: Pass.
Details Cohesive Failure, Adhesive Transfer, Material tear & Successful Peel are measured & recorded after a 180℃ peel test. Equipment Instron 3343 Tensometer.

Low Temperature Seal Test
Confirming the materials ability to resist low temperatures. Results: Pass.
Details: Microplates are sealed at specified low temperatures & subjected to a series of tests to substantiate seal integrity. Equipment: Laboratory Cold storage unit.

Evaluating the materials resistance to solvents (DMSO used as an aggressive standard). Results: Pass Details Sealed plate is subjected to a high concentration of DMSO for a time period at low temperatures after which seal damage & volume loss are determined. Equipment Laboratory Cold storage unit, DMSO solution.

Plate Types, Sealing Temp. Time Settings

QC testing is carried out to ensure that products are free from nucleases (DNases & RNases) as well as human genomic DNA. Although every effort is made, including cleanroom manufacture, to maintain this level of cleanliness, best laboratory practice with regards to duplicate testing should be followed.
