I wrote to the LRIG several weeks ago about an issue I was having with a
plate sealer and some 384 well plates. With much appreciated help from
Chris Kelley from Velocity 11, we were able to come up with a solution for
the sealing problem. Due to minor differences in plate shape, it appears to
be critical to raise or lower the plate on the sliding platform using plate
shims. Once the proper shim was combined with optimized time and heat
parameters, we had no problem sealing many different kinds of plates.
