The Kbiosystems KAPS-500

kbiosystems Sealing Series of automated and semi automated systems offer the ideal entry level automation laboratories require for a reliable, consistent plate and tube closing.
The Kaps unit is an automated adhesive pressure applied micro plate and tube rack sealer. The unit uses a roll of surface modified aluminium or plastic film approx. 78 to 82mm wide and 200m long, the roll is positioned to the rear of the sealing section via a removable stand, using a total inline method the film is pulled through the main unit, cut to between 124mm and 130mm in length and then applied to the plate top surface to create the seal between plate and film.
Offering complete versatility, the sealer Series will work with a wide range of plates, tube
racks and custom applications shallow and deep well formats, and custom mouldings.
Our latest range of seals support polystyrene, polypropylene and CoC & CoP plate formats
with a range of film substrates please contact us for further details.
Constant motion and pressure lead the way in sealing techniques, kbiosystems developed the
first fully automated production sealers way back in 1994 and still are considered the premier
application specialist amongst users and integrators alike.
System operation is designed to efficiently apply pressure activated sealing film to a micro well
plate or tube rack top surface. By pulling and maintaining control of a reel of film cutting to the
desired length and by means of variable pressure, motion and time based variables apply the
film to achieve the seal. Having full waste management of the backing film this is a complete
solution to application of adhesive and pressure based films. The unit is both pneumatically and
electrically operated and hence will require both supplies to be readily available.
