UVXPO Sealing Sheets

UVXPO Sealing Sheets

UVXPO Sealing Sheets

SWISSCI’s UVXPO Sealing sheets are a 50 µm film with 50 µm inert encapsulated silicone adhesive. They are optically clear, with minimal to no auto-fluorescence (UV compatible), and are especially suited for protein crystallization and qPCR applications.

The encapsulated silicone adhesive is non-tacky until pressed against the sealing surface, at which time adhesive is released only in sealing areas to form the strongest available heat-resistant seal around each well on the plate. The adhesive on non-sealing areas of the film, such as directly over sample wells, remains encapsulated and inert.

UVXPO Sealing sheets are sized to fit within the edges of  SWISSCI plates. Two end tabs assist in positioning the film on the plate, and the non-tacky adhesive surface simplifies handling. Easy removal of the end tabs at perforated boundaries prevents lifting and higher evaporation rates that can occur with films that overlap the plate rim.

· High optical clarity
· Minimal to no auto-fluorescence (UV compatible)
· Chemically inert; no extractables except at extreme pH
· DMSO resistant for HTS
· Heat resistant recommended for temperatures from -70 °C to +105 °C
· Certified DNase-, RNase-, and nucleic-acid-free
· Silicone adhesive forms the strongest available seal for evaporation prevention
· Non-tacky adhesive layer simplifies handling of the film prior to sealing

SWISSCI XPOL LCP for Excellent Crystal Viewing

SWISSCI XPOL LCP for Excellent Crystal Viewing

SWISSCI  XPOL LCP

The new SWISSCI XPol LCP allows excellent crystal viewing for even the smallest of crystals, with uniform zero background when using cross polarised light.

The SWISSCI XPol LCP was developed closely with the Protein Crystallisation Center of the University of Zurich. The center has many years of expertise in crystallizing membrane proteins. The XPol LCP kit has been specially formulated to improve performance versus standard LCP systems.

The Hydrophobic (silanized) Glass Base comes in ANSI/SLAS 1-2004-Standard (SBS) format allowing for easy automation and high throughput screening. The Double-Sided Pressure Adhesive, available in 60μm and 120μm, comes readily stuck to the Glass Base with space for barcode application. The Double-Sided Pressure Adhesive has 96 holes which are 7mm in diameter and have a 2.3μ volume in the 60μm version and 4.6μl volume for 120μm. The large diameter almost eliminates the occurrence of precipitation solution being pulled to the side, which can often happen with smaller diameter holes.

The SWISSCI XPol LCP comes as standard with 175μm Cover Glass. For the addition of UV/Flu, UV Cover Films are also available upon request at 40μm, 100μm or 200μm thickness.

SWISSCI LCP Modular

SWISSCI LCP Modular

The SWISSCI LCP Modular range aims to offer more flexibility to the membrane protein crystallographers LCP experiment. There are three choices of LCP Bases which are combined with one of five pre-affixed LCP Double Sided Pressure Adhesives*. The Pressure Adhesives are of varying thickness and well dimensions. To complete the LCP sandwich plate there is a choice between two sizes of Cover Glass or three UVP Cover Films that are of varying thickness.

LCP Sandwich Options:

LCP Bases: SBS XPOL Glass Base, Glass Base and UVXPO Plastic Base

Spacers: 60 μm, 100 μm, 120 μm, 200 μm. Well sizes: 5.5 mm and 7 mm.

Covers: Cover Glass, Large Cover Glass, 40 μm Cover Film, 100 μm Cover Film, 200 μm Cover film covers

White PS tray for Automation:  low tack or no tack

* Separated bases and adhesives available on request
