Agilent PlateLoc

Agilent PlateLoc
Manufacturer: Agilent Technologies
Model: PlateLoc

PlateLoc Thermal Plate Sealer has distinguished itself as the premier thermal sealer through its speed, small footprint, ease of use and dependability. In designing the PlateLoc, Agilent overcame the challenges of sealing a wide range of microplates by developing a versatile instrument that automatically accommodates deepwell, assay, PCR, and compound storage plates. Standalone mode operation enables full control of sealing time and temperature through the PlateLoc touch screen, while a choice of plate stage inserts ensures the best possible seal for any microplate.
