iST Scientific – supplying 5.2 million Covid-19 PCR plate tests


iST Scientific celebrates supplying 5.2 million specialist micro-plate sealing films – vital components in Covid-19 PCR tests across the globe.  This equates to HALF A BILLION individual wells being used through the PCR process.

iST’s exclusive PeelASeal Super Heat-Sealing Film has enabled vital Covid-19 tests to be delivered to customers in Taiwan, the United Kingdom and China.

Placed side-by-side, these 5.2 million PeelASeal Films would cover an amazing 11.56 acres or 6 and a half football pitches!

iST looks to continue supplying aid against this pandemic and increase these statistics significantly over the coming months, as more countries require products such as PeelASeal for research and testing.

We’re delighted to be helping in the fight against Covid-19. Our PeelASeal Super seals are especially suited to the needs of Covid-19 tests.

Not only are these quality seals peelable from all plate types, but they maintain the integrity from -80 degrees to 110 degrees centigrade. And because we manufacture these seals at our dual sites in the UK, availability and speed to market is something we pride ourselves on.
