AcroSeal Protection

What sets AcroSeal apart? No accidental removal, adhesive-free sealing for less risk of contamination, better reseal, longer product life, higher package integrity and more.

Prevent Moisture with AcroSeal

Puncture Surface 7x Larger Than Competitors

The innovative quadrant septum of AcroSeal packaging offers superior performance and quality as the industry-leading packaging system for air- and moisture-sensitive reagents.

Designed to deliver the best performance and convenience in the marketplace, the new and improved AcroSeal septum (patent pending) was developed from a polymeric elastomer with surfaces coated with inert fluoropolymer. It offers significant performance and quality improvements over the previous generation septum. AcroSeal is the most innovative system for aggressive solvents and reagents.

Features and Benefits

The tamper-evident dual-cap system features an ergonomic top cap and a quadrant-style bottom cap that simultaneously provides enhanced protection and easy access to a large volume of solvent.

Inside the cap, the specially designed septum features:

  • A large surface area that reduces the force required for piercing with a syringe and allows for multiple punctures
  • A multi-layer design that retains its physical integrity and reseals better than the previous generation
  • An adhesive-free construction that reduces the risk of contamination

How to Use AcroSeal

For best results from AcroSeal packaging, we recommend the following process:

  • Use a clean and dry 18- to 24-gauge, detected non-coring needle
  • Never puncture septum through the same hole
  • Hold the bottle in an upright position when withdrawing reagents

Don’t Forget

Once you puncture the septum and withdraw the required amount: 

  • Replace the nitrogen blanket
  • Store upright to prevent prolonged product contact with the seal
