HSE•AG, a leader in laboratory automation technology, announced the introduction of the TubeSealer today - an integratable module that automatically, safely, and reliably seals qPCR tubes and plates.

The device can be easily integrated into almost any qPCR workflow, maximizing sealing reliability, minimizing the risk of cross-contamination, and providing flexible sealing of individual tubes and whole plates.

"The new TubeSealer introduces the highest process safety in automated qPCR," said Konstantin Lutze, CTO of HSE•AG. "This innovation is adaptable to a variety of tube formats, and offers many advantages over traditional manual or tape sealing approaches."

The TubeSealer closes a PCR tube using a spherical bead. The beads are carefully applied from the bead container and forced into the opening of the tube by the controlled movement of a plunger. An integrated optical sensor then performs a load check of all closed tubes. Beads can be easily loaded onto the system by clipping in a new bead container.

The TubeSealer can also be used as stand-alone unit in a manual workflow. The integrated version can be adapted to any type of data interface, including CAN, USB, or even wireless connections. The communication protocol is SiLA compliant and can be seamlessly integrated into complex workflows.
