Automatic Plate Pouring: Serial Filler

Waste is depressing—because your experiments are valuable, your time is valuable and your reagents are valuable. Never discard a badly poured plate ever again and optimise on repeatability, sterility and bench space.

Serial Filler - Agar Plate Pourer

HOW does it work?

Using advanced Graboid™ technology, the Serial Filler media dispenser automatically recognises the type of plate with zero user-input.  It pours perfectly level, bubble-free agar by adjusting the pouring speed and volume according to plate sizes and shapes. An audible signal alerts you when your agar plates are ready.

 

WHAT can I use it for?

– Pour agar plates of most standard sizes and shape (rectangular SBS, square, round Petri Dishes)
– Dispense media with high precision (+/- 3%)

– Pour perfectly flat agar plates for pinning at densities of 1536 and above

– Pour all kinds of shots and party drinks – awesome for any lab party occasion!!!

 WHAT is it?

The Serial Filler is a compact, versatile and efficient media dispensing instrument that accepts a wide range of Petri dishes and SBS-format plates.  Equipped with a UV lamp and multiple HEPA cabinet and venting filters, the Serial Filler produces superior quality agar plates of consistent volume in a sterile enclosure, which greatly reduces any threat of contamination.

 

WHAT does it do?

With the touch of a button on our signature user-friendly interface, the Serial Filler automatically dispenses biological growth media onto Petri dishes and plates. The quick-change Media Dispensing Kits enable easy setup between runs for labs that use multiple media formulations.
