UVEX PS-256

Benchmark storage solutions for crystal plates

Temperature controlled storage cabinet for imaging and plate management

  • Key Features

    • Quiet, built-in DC compressor keeps temperatures constant in the 4-25°C range
    • Built-in UPS continuous operation in case of power failure
    • Motors driven in hybrid stepper mode, allows for smooth, quiet, and fast operation
    • Stall detection stop motors if unusual amount of resistance encountered
    • Smooth transition of plates sensors ensure smooth transition of plates between loading port, storage racks and imager
    • No risk of dropping plate plate handler slips under the plate and lifts for pick up

The UVEX PS-256 is a temperature controlled plate storage system with a capacity of 256 standard SBS, or 344 low-profile SBS plate or 424 LCP glass sandwich plates. Racks can be allocated to accommodate all three plate types and for increased capacity (can be upgraded on site); loading port accommodates taller (VDX type) SBS plates as well. The system comes with a built-in barcode reader which works with plastic trays as well as LCP glass sandwich plates. It also has built-in cameras for remote monitoring of plates. The UVEX PS-256 system sits on casters and adjustable feet for easy repositioning or moving between rooms.

Plates are tracked as they are moved in and out of the hotel; removed and re-introduced. About 180 x 96-well plates can be imaged every day – with one lens and a BF and a UV image per drop.

Existing UVEX-P can be integrated with plate hotels for significant cost savings.
