The Biotool systems are truly “walk away” plate pouring systems. There are multiple sensors that detect if a plate is not present or upside down and will not pour unless all conditions are correct. When maintained well (cleaned and a yearly preventative maintanance done on the unit) there is very little operator intervention required during operation of the systems. The plates are automatically stacked at the required height (1 – 20) so the lab technician does not have to manually move the poured plate.
The plates are opened under UV light during the pouring stage preventing contamination during this process and kept open for only few seconds,. he lab technician is protected from the UV light by a protective cover with safety switch that turns off the UV light when the cover is open.
Yes- the systems can be connected to a media preparer such as the Proficlave PC10 / 20 to insure that the agar remains at the proper dispensing temperature, well stirred and sterile.

These systems will produce smooth and level plates.
