High speed access and storage capacity for more than 200 microplates
The Carousel is a fast access storage system, which gives users increased walkaway time and is ideal for high throughput applications in genomics, drug discovery and proteomics. The Carousel is compatible with all Freedom EVO® liquid handling instruments and can handle all microplates meeting the Society of Biomolecular Screening (SBS) footprint.
The Carousel allows random access to 220 plates, with an average access time of just 12 seconds per plate. It provides a Freedom EVO workstation with a medium storage capacity and comfortable walkaway time. The Carousel is made up of ten stacks, each of which can be transferred from one carousel to another and can be configured for different types of plates. It can handle stacks with various shelves spacing to allow storing a different type of labware in each stack. A barcode option for the Carousel identifies and tracks samples throughout the complete workflow.
