Porvair kBiosystems

Plate Sealers

Fully- and semi-automated heat sealers,
adhesive sealers and plate piercers

Offering laboratories the ideal entry level automation for reliable, consistent plate and tube closing

Ideal entry level automation for reliable, consistent results

Offering complete versatility, the Porvair Kbiosystems sealer series will work with a wide range of plates, tube racks and custom applications, shallow and deep well formats, and custom mouldings. 

Constant time and pressure lead the way in Kbio’s sealing techniques.  Kbio developed the first fully automated production sealers back in 1994, and still are considered the premier application specialist amongst users and integrators alike.

Range of sealing solutions

From small-footprint semi-automated units to fully integrable devices, Kbio’s range of sealers will have a solution for your workflow needs.  Kbio’s heat and pressure applied sealers offer complete versatility for a wide range of plates, tubes and applications.

Contamination-free sealing

Quieter than conventional pneumatically driven units, eSeal’s all-electric operation removes the risk of cross-contamination inherent in compressed air powered sealers.

Laser cutting functionality

Additional to plate sealing, the FireFly system has plate piercing and cutting functions.  The cutting function increases sealing utility, capable of separating sealed strip wells and individual tubes.  The piercing function reduces tip/probe damage in subsequent plate handling steps.

Features

Versatile for a wide range of vessels

Offering complete versatility, the Porvair Kbiosystems sealer series will work with wide range of SBS format plates, tube racks and custom applications shallow and deep well formats, and custom mouldings. 

Variety of sealing options

Kbio’s range of sealers provide septum capping, adhesive pressure, and heat-applied sealing solutions.  Their latest range of seals support polystyrene, polypropylene and CoC & CoP plate formats with a range of surface modified aluminium and plastic film substrates, including gas permeable films.

Operator and integrator friendly

Kbio’s sealers are easy to program and operate.  The heat-applied sealers feature an intuitive touchscreen user interface that combines temperature and seal time display.  The Ultraseal PRO, eSeal, Chameleon, KAPS and FireFly systems are all integrator friendly, with features such as automatic ejection when seal is complete.  Additionally, the Firefly is compatible with Kbio’s Scorpion plate handling system for increased processing throughput.

Smart sealing technology

Featuring all-electric operation, the eSeal removes the risk of cross contamination inherent in compressed air powered sealers.  The use of force sensors allows dynamic feedback during the entire sealing process to ensure homogenous sealing, all controlled through the intuitive touchscreen interface.

Sealing and laser cutting in one

The FireFly uses a fibre laser to generate a beam, that is highly suited for metal cutting and marking metal or light range absorbent materials for high-contrast plastic marking or cutting. With a wavelength of 1.064 µm, the beam produces an extremely small focal diameter, making the intensity up to 100 times greater than conventional CO2 lasers.  With minimal heat transfer from the laser, plates can be fully sealed then pre-pierced to reduce tip damage, and resealed/re-pierced multiple times.
