With grab-and-go convenience in mind, Verso Q20 will even arrange samples just the way you want them. Imagine what you can accomplish while the system handles mundane sample picking tasks.

Sample placement is practically effortless through the convenient I/O module. With the added flexibility to accommodate a wide variety of labware types, you can continue using your preferred sample vessels. Additionally, you can rest easy knowing that automated barcode scanning, lockout controls, and a full digital audit trail prevent the risk of lost or missing samples.

In other words, Verso Q20 is a more environmentally friendly option than many freezers using conventional refrigerants. With this much efficiency and peace of mind, you’re sure to capture well-deserved attention as a research standout.
