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.
Using advanced Graboid™ technology, the Serial Filler media dispenser automatically recognises the type of plate. 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.
– Pour agar plates of most standard sizes and shape (rectangular SBS, square, round Petri Dishes). See list of compatible brands.
– 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!!!
The Serial Filler is a compact, versatile and efficient media dispensing instrument that accepts 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.
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.
Pack of two HEPA Cabinet Filters, with 99.95% global efficiency and 99.75% local efficiency for MPPS particles, which ensures maximum sterility of the Serial Filler interior.
Pack of five high-retention polypropylene HEPA Venting Filters, with 99.97% efficiency at 0.3µm, which ensures maximum sterility of your prepared media.
Pack of five 1.7m silicone media dispensing umbilicals, crucial to obtain optimal throughput for labs pouring multiple types of media or drugs.
The Serial Filler works with a range of different plate or dish formats – a unique feature of it’s kind! Compatibility includes round Petri dishes at 90mm and 150mm. Square plates at 120mm, and SBS-format plates including Singer PlusPlates. Because of the vast differences in size and quality between different manufacturers, the Serial Filler does not work with all plates. Good quality plates are crucial for accurate pouring; the Serial Filler is only compatible with these manufacturers.
Just follow the on-screen instructions. Boom!
Pour 50x 90mm Petri dishes in less than 8 minutes!
Pour 400 level, bubble-free plates in an 8-hour day (includes set-up time)!
