Eliminating the Difficulties In Handling Adhesive Sealing Films

MicroBurst™ - a revolutionary new microencapsulated clear sealing film for microplates.Porvair Sciences has announced MicroBurstTM - a revolutionary new microencapsulated clear sealing film for microplates.

Using adhesive seals whilst wearing laboratory gloves can often prove to be difficult. The glued surface of the seal can easily stick to your glove rather than your microplate. Porvair MicroBurst sealing films have been developed to eliminate this problem.

With its adhesive encapsulated in millions of tiny spheroids, MicroBurst sealing film, when first handled, is not sticky and can be quickly and easily moved into position. Only when you are satisfied that the film is in the correct place do you press down hard to burst and activate the MicroBurst adhesive microcapsules. No more mess, no more incorrectly positioned adhesive seals.

The patented MicroBurst technology is being offered for the first time in the laboratory industry by Porvair Sciences Ltd. The clear film has excellent optical properties and once activated, produces a very firm seal which quickly strengths to form a near-permanent seal on your plates. MicroBurst film can be pierced by pipette tips or robot liquid handlers and is temperature stable - making it ideal for PCR work.

For further information or to request a test sample of MicroBurst sealing film please contact Porvair Sciences Ltd. on telephone +44-1372-824290 or visit

Established in 1992, Porvair Sciences Ltd. expertise in microplate technology and manufacturing covers scientific fields including Life Sciences, Drug Discovery, Combinatorial Chemistry, Solid Phase Extraction, Protein Purification, High Throughput Screening, Proteomics and Genomics.  Porvair Sciences Ltd. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Porvair plc
