A microplate sealer, or plate sealer, is used for sealing individual microplates in research and clinical laboratories—anywhere microplates are required.

They are designed to support increased demand and provide excellent sample storage, and are an essential part of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) applications, such as qPCR, as well as cell cultures and assays.

The seal protects and contains the microplate’s samples, provides a solution to short-term and long-term storage, and prevents evaporation, contamination, or spillage.

Sealers operate both manually and automatically using thermal or adhesive sealing. However, using automation to seal microplates greatly improves workflow and reproducibility, leading to high throughput and workflow optimization.

By increasing speed, reducing human error, and providing consistency, an automated microplate sealer offers often overlooked yet very significant benefits to the modern biotechnology or biochemical laboratory.

The programming design of these devices allows for easy robotic integration with many diagnostic instruments and systems, such as liquid handling robots. By combining your automated microplate sealer with a liquid handling system, you maximize walkaway time.

Automated Sealer Benefits & Price

Automated heat sealers provide small but valuable gains through automation. They can accommodate a variety of microplates, as the sealer design takes into consideration both well plate depth and plate height.

Furthermore, they provide options in temperature control, operate using different sealing materials, and produce at varying levels of throughput. Consider all these factors when looking for a new microplate sealer.


Automated sealers are capable of fast cycles with little to no cooling down and can seal multiple plates per minute. Some models are more ideal than others for high-throughput, but all provide ease-of-use and reproducible results. Both hand- and automatically-fed options are available.



Automation removes the potential for human error, ensuring precise control over any sealing parameters, including temperature, sealing time, pressure, and more. The ability to control these parameters guarantees correctly sealed microplates and repeatability, minimizing or eliminating precious sample loss.



Plate sealers are capable of simultaneously sealing many different heights of plates by offering flexible configurations, generally at the touch of a button or without the need for adapters.


Microplate Seal Peeler

A worthwhile investment, the microplate seal peeler completes the package when it comes to automated sealing solutions. This device automatically peels off microplate seals for you, further increasing your productivity and turnaround time. Rather than spend time manually removing seals, consider acquiring a microplate seal peeler.


Microplate Sealing Equipment Leases to Fit Every Need

Although plate heat sealer’s don’t cost an exorbitant amount, it may be a necessary to acquire multiple, or include one in an acquisition with other pieces of equipment, such as a microplate readers, PCR machine (or thermal cycler), liquid handler, and centrifuges. Together, these devices can help you create a highly optimized workflow. However, they can be difficult to purchase outright once the costs have been added up.

For this reason, leasing with Excedr is a great alternative that bypasses the financial hurdles of purchasing lab equipment. Our leasing program supports a healthy overall financial strategy that allows you to remain operationally flexible!

Whether you work with 96-, 384-, or 1536-well microplates, we have a microplate sealer for you. Or, if you want to lease one alongside multiple pieces of equipment, we can help with that too.

Operating Lease

This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.


If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
