Slit Seal, 96 well plate seal
Instant Self Closing Seal
The Slit Seal is a resistant, instant self-closing 96-well plate seal.
The adhesive-free, pre-cut slits made of silicone and PET allows easy insertion and withdrawal of pipette tips and sampling needles without dragging. The Slit Seal’s main purpose is to prevent solvent evaporation and cross-contamination. Some suggested applications are Automation, SPE, HPLC, LC/MS, and ADME.
“We run quite a lot of samples with our mass spec, which is why some people in our lab prefer to use the autosampler plate for the samples so that they can just run 96 samples in one sitting…The plate seals are working perfectly for our application.”

Data Analysis Sheet
Differences from Silicone Mats:
- Pre-cut slits open easily, and PET layer reduces friction for very easy handling.
- Lower cost than silicone mats.
Very Effective at Preventing Evaporation:
- After 22 hours, 95% of 150 µl water will remain at 37°C
- After 22 hours, 95% of 150 µl of Acetonitrile will remain at 4°C
