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.

The Biotool PS900 and PS20 system uses 90 – 100mm beveled (automation) plates. We ask you to send one sleeve of your plates so we can adjust the system prior to the delivery to your laboratory. The PS200 filler works with most 90-100mm plates.

The Biotool systems are equipped with a dual head pump that eliminates air bubbles during the dispensing of media, keeping it smooth. in addition, the PS900 and PS200 systems are equipped with an additional vibration system to actively smooth the agar. These systems will produce smooth and level plates.

Yes, any of our systems can draw media from a flask or any other container. The Proficlave PC10 or 20 insures that the media is at the proper dispensing temperature, properly mixed and sterile.

Yes – the PS900 system can accommodate any stack height from a single plate up to 20 plates.

Yes – the systems let you choose any stack height from 1 to 20 (remember, lower stacks will cool faster due to smaller heat residue).

Yes, we offer a wide range of leasing program for small monthly installments, call our Toll Free number 1-888-810-5179 for more information and lease programs.
