PERIPHERAL INSTRUMENT COMPATIBILITY


Automated Plate Sealing: For high throughput sealing needs, the PlateLoc can be integrated with the Vleocity11 BenchCel microplate handling system. The BenchCel allows up to 320 plates to be sealed at one time, at a rate of 3 plates per minute, making quick work of even the tallest rack of plates.
Other Velocity11 Instruments: Bravo™ automated liquid handling platform, VPrep® pipetting system, VCode® bar code print and apply station, VSpin™ with Access2™ integrated microplate centrifuge (all of these require the use of an automated plate handler/robot for integration).
Third Party Instruments:Compatible with some reagent dispensers, plate shakers, plate readers, sealers, washers. compound reformatters, plate storage systems, etc. when used with an automated plate handler/robot for integration and appropriate compatible software.

PlateLoc

Gas-Purging PlateLoc Description


The Gas-Purging PlateLoc uses inert gas, such as Argon, to displace air, containing moisture and oxygen, in the plate immediately before the sealing begins. The plate contents can be protected from hydration and oxidation for up to 24 hours. Typically used for compound storage applications, the Gas-Purging PlateLoc is best for plate contents that are sensitive to oxidation and moisture (for example, DMSO).

Note: For typical polystyrene and polypropylene plates, the gas-purging effects can last up to 24 hours when the plates are stored at room temperature. The effects can last longer if the plates are stored at lower temperatures.
