The Automated Plate Seal Remover from Azenta Life Sciences is the ideal product for labs faced with repetitively removing microplate seals while preserving sample integrity.


Designed as an automated system, the Automated Plate Seal Remover holds the plate down whilst the seal is peeled away, eliminating cross-contamination issues that are common when using manual seal removal techniques. The operating mode of the system also minimizes plate or seal damage, and an integrated seal removal verification feature reduces plate handling errors.
