The new ImpressiOn from Ziath has been designed to take the strain out of applying friction sealing mats or septum sealing caps to SBS format tube racks. Simply place your rack or plate with its attendant friction mat or septum cap web in the drawer and push it firmly shut. Initiate sealing with the large, glove- friendly start button and the sophisticated electronics take over, applying reproducible and even pressure every time to force the septum seals down into each tube. Time after time, ImpressiOn does the hard work for you. It’s more reproducible, quicker and less likely to cause a strain injury than trying to do this manually. The compact unit requires only a 110v or 220v power supply to operate and is small enough to sit on most lab benches.


ImpressiOn will work with most commercially available septum cap mats and different manufacturers 2D-coded and uncoded tubes in SBS-format racks. Both friction and septum seals for 96-, 48- and 24-tube plates have been shown to work well in ImpressiOn.
