Cytomat* 6000 and 6070 Automated Incubator
Considered as an enabling technology for cell-based assays by clients worldwide, the Thermo Scientific* Cytomat 60xx provides extremely uniform and stable temperature, humidity and CO2 conditions setting the standard in automated incubation since years and has proven itself as a perennial favorite.
The Cytomat 60xx series offers a temperature range of from Ta+10°C to +70°C with a humidity level of up to 98% rH in the high humidity version and storage for 189 standard microplates. A specially designed internal water reservoir creates this stable, high level of humidity, and ventilated stackers minimize evaporation. A single point of integration creates an extremely robot-friendly design, as the robot only needs to be taught one position for plate retrieval. The small access door and Thermo Scientific Plate Shuttle* system allow microplates to enter and exit the unit in seconds, significantly minimizing disruption to the controlled environment and virtually eliminating recovery times. Loading and unloading results in less than 0.5°C fluctuation, and the atmosphere inside the Cytomat 60xx series regenerates rapidly, regardless of the number of plates being retrieved. The Plate Shuttle system and access door can handle all standard microplate formats including deep-well plates. A built in barcode reader can scan barcodes at any plate position inside the Cytomat 60xx series. This minimizes plate movement and provides superior sample and plate tracking.
