Microplate Mat Cappers

For laboratories having to seal several microplates, Porvair Sciences offers a range of versatile mat capping solutions. 

Compact and portable, the Mat Capper (manually operated) and the Autocapper (electronically operated) are very easy to use, requiring only one operation of the system to produce an accurate and tight seal on a wide range of both collection and shallow well microplates. The seals used are EVA or silicone mats, which work by friction fit and are re-usable with care.

The Mat Capper

The Mat Capper can also be used with 2D bar-coded tube racks and their closure mats, including racks containing glass tubes, thanks to the clever design of the mechanism which will not crush one end of the rack but applies even pressure across the plate or rack.

  • Caps shallow and deep well polypropylene storage plates
  • Needs minimal pressure for capping, reducing fatigue and RSI
  • Powder coated to resist chemical spillage
  • Universal plate ‘shuttle’ to take shallow or deep well plates
  • Fixing holes for securing to bench
  • Works with glass tube racks

The AutoCapper

The electronic mat capper designed to effortlessly and securely apply friction sealing caps to a wide range of microplates. 

  • Automation-ready
  • Ideal for deep well and shallow plates
  • Reproducible tight sealing for higher throughput
  • Reduces repetitive strain injury (RSI)
