MicroStream™ Microplate Thawing Station from Porvair Sciences
Product News May 09, 2008
The MicroStream™ microplate thawing station from Porvair Sciences Ltd circulates ambient air across the base of a frozen microplate or tube rack to gently and evenly thaw samples without risk of damage, the company has said.
The majority of compound stores worldwide utilize DMSO as the primary solvent. As DMSO has a freezing point of 18 degrees C, thawing samples from microplates or sample storage tubes is a widely recognized laboratory bottleneck.
According to Company, the MicroStream increase laboratory productivity and maintains sample integrity protecting compounds during multiple freeze-thaw cycles, reducing the precipitation risk.
