SecureSeal™ Hybridization Chambers
SECURESEAL™ HYBRIDIZATION CHAMBERS
SecureSeal™ Hybridization Chambers are thin, silicone-gasketed chambers providing optimal surface-to-volume fluid dynamics for hybridization assays on large or multiple specimens and microarrays on glass or film coated slides. These adhesive-backed chambers are designed for single-use, very-low volume incubations and are ideal for autoradiographic, fluorescent or chemiluminescent end-point applications requiring small, enclosed fluid volumes. SecureSeal™ Adhesive is a double-sided tape with a silicone adhesive surface on one side (covered with a clear PET liner) and an acrylic adhesive on the other surface (covered with a paper liner).
SecureSeal™ chambers form removable, peel-and-stick enclosures to isolate specimens affixed to glass microscope slides. The chamber design minimizes friction, promotes reagent mixing, and facilitates uniform hybridization. Sealable access ports in the chamber surface allow for the addition and removal of reactants. SecureSeal™ adhesive bonds chambers to glass in seconds and removes cleanly and easily even after heating. Adhesive Seal Tabs create leak-proof chambers that are temperature resistant. Each package includes illustrated instructions for use and 120 adhesive port seals. Additional seal tabs are sold separately (SKU: 629200).

CoverWell™ Incubation ChambersSEARCH
CoverWell™ incubation chambers are reusable, easy to apply chambers that attach without the use of adhesive. CoverWells™ enclose a large sample area with a small reagent volume and preserve kinetic (non-capillary) fluid dynamics for better reagent mixing and lower backgrounds within the chamber for more uniformly sensitive assays. These ready-to-use chambers are designed expressly for in situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry.
FastWells™ Reagent BarriersSEARCH
FastWells™ are sticky, flexible silicone gaskets that form hydrophobic reagent barriers around specimens without messy adhesives or special slides. Gaskets may be stacked to increase depth and volume. FastWell™ Reagent Barriers provide rapid isolation of cells and tissues on slides or coverslips for antibody incubations. The barriers remain sealed during agitated washing steps, preventing reagents from spilling when shaken or rocked. FastWells™ peel off quickly and cleanly, leaving no residue to interfere with specimen cover-slipping. They can be washed, autoclaved and reused. The barriers can also be sealed to form incubation chambers using flexible HybriSlip™ covers.
FlexWell™ 4 Slide TraySEARCH
Multiple slides and FlexWells™ may be inserted into a reusable FlexWell™ tray, organizing wells into the footprint of a SBS compliant microtiter plate to facilitate handling.
FlexWell™ Incubation ChambersSEARCH
FlexWell™ incubation chamber silicone gaskets form wells on slides using clean release adhesive to isolate up to 16 specimens per slide. Slides fit into a reusable slide tray organizing wells into the footprint of a microtiter plate. Gaskets may be sealed for mixing and to prevent evaporation.
FlexWell™ Seal StripsSHOP
To prevent evaporation apply seal strips using the plastic applicator to the top surface of the chamber. Seal strips remove cleanly and easily without leaving a residue.
HybriSlip™ Hybridization CoversSEARCH
HybriSlips™ are rigid, light-weight, thin plastic coverslips that minimize friction and facilitate uniform reagent distribution during incubation steps which require small reagent volume. HybriSlips™ are RNase and DNase free, hydrophobic covers that will not trap or bind probes to their surfaces like coverglass. Working surfaces are protected from nuclease contamination by clean liners and are ready to use without pretreatment. HybriSlips™ remain flat and unlike Parafilm, will not curl, even at high temperatures. HybriSlips™ are clear, will not chip or break, and are lighter weight than glass, minimizing friction and facilitating uniform reagent distribution.
HybriWell™ Sealing SystemSEARCH
HybriWell™ Sealing System bonds securely to a microscope slide surface in seconds to confine small reagent volumes with samples and eliminate evaporation. Each package includes illustrated instructions for use, applicator and 200 adhesive port seals. Any of the designs listed may be easily customized to increase or decrease chamber depth. Hybriwells™ are recommended for most protein and nucleic acid assays. If you are using Cy5 or ® Alexa Fluor 647 direct-labeled DNA probes please refer to our new “fluorescent friendly” chambers. All current designs may be fabricated using our "fluorescent friendly" adhesive material.
ProPlates® were specifically designed to enable automated robotic liquid handling. Two main configurations are available:
- The ProPlate® Microtiter Plate is comprised of a SBS compliant microtiter plate superstructure and feature a SesureSeal ™ adhesive bonding system applied to the bottom. Click here for more information
- The ProPlate® Multi –Array Slide System integrates microscope array technology with automated microtiter plate processing. Individual modules fit into a tray with a standard microtiter plate footprint. Click here for more information
Silicone Isolators allow researchers to isolate specimens using removable hydrophobic barriers. They may be used to isolate cells grown in culture dishes or separate multiple specimens affixed to microscope slides. Isolators are available in red silicone thickness 0.5 to 2.5mm pre-cut or as sheet material with or without secure seal clean adhesive on one or both surfaces. Nonadhesive isolators are autoclavable and reusable.Silicone Isolators™ remain sealed to smooth surfaces during washing steps. Where additional sealing is required, SecureSeal™ adhesive on one or both surfaces is recommended.
