Optimize storage and throughput with this small-footprint unit that stores stacked microplates and tip boxes, and supports automated access by our robotic systems. Thermo Scientific™ Platefeeder Carousel consists of a motorized turntable with detachable hotels, and includes a controller that enables a host computer to rotate the turntable until the desired hotel is in position. When used with a Thermo Scientific Laboratory Automation and Integration robotic arm, our Platefeeder Carousel provides fully-automated storage of stacked microplates.
