PlatePierce™: A Low Cost Automation Solution for Some Applications

The PlatePierce is a low cost plate piercing station that does not include provision for tip washing, but may be a cost effective solution for some applications.

Minimizing carryover is a function of the right application, typically involving very small sample volumes which are not contacted by the short length pins used to puncture the seal.

PlatePierce - Overview + Features

PlatePierce™ . Overview + Features

As a complementary instrument to the PlateLoc, the PlatePierceTM pierces a wide variety of seals on 96 or 384 well microplates in only 4 seconds of cycle time. Specially designed piercing pins guarantee a clean, controlled puncture on every plate with a penetration depth of 3 mm, even with deepwell plates. Use either as a stand-alone unit, or integrate into an articulated robotic arm-based system able to fully access the plate stage.  Instrument may be controlled via third-party software using ActiveX control and RS-232 serial port connection.  Indicator lights on the machine alert the operator to the machine status (ready, busy, stop, low air pressure), and a plate alignment sensor ensures that the microplate is correctly positioned in the plate locator before actuation. A hardware interlock on the front door provides maximum safety to the operator. The piercing head is easily removed for cleaning. Reconfiguration between formats is accomplished in seconds by changing the pierce head.
