Adhesives systems for genetic lab testing equipmentMaster Bond high performance adhesives, sealants, and encapsulants are able to play an integral role in the construction of instruments used in genetic engineering. These range from mass spectrometers, genetic analyzers, autoclaves, DNA sequencing equipment to automated electrophoresis systems, microarray equipment, and PCR thermocyclers. Customized Master Bond products have been developed to provide solutions for challenging customer requirements and are employed in medical, agricultural, industrial, and energy research applications. Such equipment is frequently utilized by academic institutions, hospitals, governmental agencies, biotechnology laboratories, pharmaceutical agencies, engineering firms, and chemical corporations.

Master Bond compounds are formulated to meet stringent quality control standards. Our easy-to-use compositions offer excellent mechanical, electrical, thermal and chemical resistance properties. These systems have the capability of contributing to designing instruments that ensure quick, precise, accurate, and reliable results. They also have been most successful in adopting advanced technology, improving efficiency, data integrity, automation, touch screen operation and maximizing space through miniaturization. Specific Master Bond grades are dimensionally stable, low outgassing, durable, tough, fill gaps, withstand cyclic fatigue, seal against liquid gas contamination and possess high glass transition temperatures (Tg). In this ever-evolving competitive marketplace, Master Bond made much progress in achieving elusive goals with novel products.
