Ambient Random Access Storage
Designed for easy integration into automated systems
Thermo Scientific™ Cytomat™ random access storage hotels are designed to integrate into any automated system. From benchtop to floor standing models, Cytomat Hotels can accommodate from 42 to 1008 shallow well plates, while the integrated plate shuttle system (PSS) can handle all SBS standard microplate formats, including deep-well plates and tip boxes. The system can also be optimized for petri dish or protein crystallography applications.
Most compact ambient, random access storage hotel with a capacity of up to 42 standard microplates.
Ambient random access storage hotel for up to 189 standard microplates.
Fastest, high-capacity ambient, random access storage hotel for up to 210 standard microplates with standard or perspex housing.
Ideal for highest capacity ambient, random access storage hotel for up to 504 standard microplates.
Large capacity, random access storage hotel for up to 1008 standard microplates; ideal for vibration-minimizing applications such as protein crystallography.
The Cytomat system delivers the microplate to a single point, offering “easy-teach” integration for any automated system. A single loading and unloading point – the transfer station – makes teaching simple and cuts down the programming time, making for an extremely robot-friendly design.
These transfer stations offer a versatile placement of the Cytomat in the lab.
Standard transfer station
This standard transfer station supplies the microplate in portrait format. A 90° turnable version is available for landscape presentation.
Linear transfer station
This linear transfer station is available in different lengths (300mm, 400mm and 500mm) for extended reach and delivers the microplate in portrait format. Additional options are available for landscape presentation and lateral movement.
Swap station (180°)
This swap station accelerates your lab automation handling system by providing two plate positions.
This plate lift is stepper motor driven (SMD) and offers microplate movement to a predefined height within a 500 mm stroke.
The right options to match your application and automation needs with internal barcode readers, stackers, copper chambers and more.
Internal barcode reader
The barcode reader is located on the plate handler, allowing retrieval of information on every position, even when manually loaded.
The stainless steel, autoclavable Cytomat Stacker accommodates all standard microplates. Dedicated pitch sizes are available to optimize capacity for different types of microplates.
The use of 100% pure copper as the chamber material minimizes contamination (introduced through door opening or sample handling) due to its inherent properties.
