Take a look at this PDF file to find plates that are compatible with
your application:

We use Pryme AVRT1 plates with the 7300 and 7500, but we are not doing
FAST QPCR.  From our vendor, the plates are $50 for 25 plates.  There are
likely to be cheaper vendors.

For optical grade sealing film we pay $80 for 100 seals.
