What are the advantages/disadvantages of domed and flat PCR caps?

Due to the fact that the lid of the thermocyler presses a domed PCR cap against the tube, the sealing between cap and tube will be improved. In contrast to flat caps domed caps cannot be labeled on the cap and cannot be used for Real Time PCR (q!PCR).

Evaporation losses in tubes with flat PCR caps can be higher compared to tubes with domed caps.
