Semi-automatic device Sealing of SBS Format Tube Racks
Ziath has announced the launch of a semi-automatic device designed to take the strain out of applying friction sealing mats or septum sealing caps to SBS format tube racks.
Tube racks are a valuable tool in life science research and clinical diagnostic testing laboratories as they can be used to simplify the handling and storage of large numbers of samples. It is essential that tube racks can be securely sealed in order to avoid contamination and evaporation thereby maintaining the integrity of your samples. The Ziath Impressi-On is a new semi-automatic device designed to take the strain out of applying friction sealing mats or septum sealing caps to SBS format tube racks. Laboratory Technician have just to place their rack or plate with its attendant friction mat or septum cap web in the drawer. Sealing is initiated using the start button, then electronics take over applying reproducible and even pressure every time to force the septum seals down into each tube. The unit requires only a 110v or 220v power supply to operate and is small enough to sit on most lab benches. The Ziath Impressi-On will work with most commercially available septum cap mats and different manufacturers 2D-coded and uncoded tubes in SBS-format racks. Both friction and septum seals for 96-, 48- and 24-tube plates have been shown to work well using the device.
