Agar/Media Filler PS900

A linear agar petri dish filler, the PS900 can fill up to 900 Petri dishes per hour (15ml/plate). Petri dishes move from station to station: from the stacking unit – to the high sterility filling chamber – through media smoothing – to the height stacking area.

Manufacturer: BioTool Swiss AG
SKU: 900000


Neutec Group is proud to offer innovative agar plate filler systems by Biotool Swiss. This series of fillers offers state-of-the-art agar filling technology and includes changeable dish height stacking, and a touch screen. The PS900 linear filler can fill Up to 900 plates per hour capacity (15ml per plate)!

This large batch system media filler machine was designed to be more flexible as compared to carrousel fillers. It will accommodate up to 20 dishes per stack and the stack height may be selected as needed. The unit is user friendly and engineered for batch, or continuous operation with minimal down time.

The Petri dish is transported on a conveyor belt from station to station – from filling in the decontamination chamber, through media smoothing, up to the stacking area. All these functions can be manipulated by the operator.

The PS900 media filling machine can be connected to any ink jet printer. This allows for dish customization and printing of information such as barcodes, batch numbers, dates and times, or the sample ID as required.

To help you transition from manual Agar filling to automated Agar pouring check our Cost Savings and Return on Investment R.O.I calculator. For more information regarding the Biotool Swiss media filling machine or any of the other products in our catalog, contact Neutec Group at 1-888-810-5179.

This is the most ergonomic user-friendly filler that allows the easiest stacking and un-stacking of plates, as compared to a carousel media filler 

The PS900 can be connected to an external Ink Jet that will print on the dish information such as sample ID, batch number, date or a barcode. If this is a requirement, the unit will need to be pre-ordered from the factory as “printer ready” and we will be happy to connect you to the local Ink Jet dealer who can offer you the printer itself together with necessary supplies.

We purchased a PS900 (and PS20) at Nassau Community College to help automate our media production. This purchase hands down is one of the best purchases we have made. The PS900 has increased our productivity in the lab. Freeing up time to take care of other essential tasks we need to accomplish throughout the day. One of my favorite features of the PS900 is the fact that I can set the stack height of plates to a desired number then with our old carousel. For us this was extremely helpful because media sets and is ready for class in no time! Thank you Kimi and the rest of the awesome group of people at Neutec for all your help and guidance.

I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how much The Georgia Poultry loves our Petri Swiss 900. After years of battling with the Carousal pourer it’s amazing how simple getting twice as much work done in a much shorter time has become. Also I would really like to thank Luc - our Neutec Service Engineer for always doing such a great job taking care of our machine. He is one of the most knowledgeable and gracious young men I’ve seen in a long time. What a great asset for us all. Thanks again.
