LABOSTOCKER Rack Type

LABOSTOCKER Rack Type is an automatic picking storage best suited to small- to medium-scale amounts of storage in laboratories and such. It stores microtubes or plates (products conforming to SBS Standards) individually on rotary racks and picks up the tubes precisely and at a high speed by means of a transfer unit and picking unit. Moreover, the stocker supports the optimum storage temperatures suited to the articles to be stored, ranging from room temperature to freezing and refrigeration.

Features

Compact and capable of high density storage.
Ability to retrieve data and to instruct stocking-in/out from terminal of each researcher.
Data management for samples, remaining amounts, number of uses made, etc.
Stocking-in/out capacity and layout to meet needs are achieved through the combination of standard modules. Sure-fire storage based on bar codes and 2D codes.

LABOSTOCKER Bucket Type

LABOSTOCKER Bucket Type is an automatic storage system that flexibly accommodates a wide variety of articles to be stored, including vials, microtubes, plates, and so on. It employs dedicated buckets of high-density storage and, for example, can achieve stocking-in/out with excellent space-saving and at a high speed for a storage amount of over one million 96-well microtubes. Moreover, the stocker supports the optimum storage temperatures suited to the articles to be stored, ranging from room temperature to freezing and refrigeration.

Features

High-density storage and high-speed stocking-in/out using buckets.
Buckets can be customized to meet specific articles to be stored.
Sure-fire storage based on bar codes and 2D codes.
Ability to retrieve data and to instruct stocking-in/out from the terminal of each researcher.
Data management for samples, remaining amounts, number of uses made, etc.
Possible to design systems consistent with intended operation modes and to select flexible layouts suited to installation sites.

LABOSTOCKER 150(LN2 type)

We have added a -150°C automated ultra-low temperature storage unit to LABOSTOCKER series lineup.
With liquid nitrogen cooling, you can keep your samples safety for extended periods.
Picking is also carried out within the −150°C environment, so the samples are not exposed.

Features

The unit maintains sample quality because exposure is eliminated through storing and picking at -150°C. Exposure of samples when inserting or extracting them is reduced through the use of freezing boxes.
Samples are picked and transferred accurately and quickly without fail thanks to the outstanding tube gripping and rack-transfer functions - both of which are the result of LABOSTOCKER’s innovations.
No condensation or frost is generated because the nitrogen environment controls the humidity.
Tubes of various sizes can be used according to the items being stored.
The unit can pick a range of tubes from 96-well mini tubes to Cryo tubes.
Gas phase storage of the liquid nitrogen means the cooling function is maintained even during power cuts or interruptions in the liquid nitrogen supply.
Operation and management procedures are similar to LABOSTOCKER.
The unit’s software functions such as the timer and history management regarding insertion and extraction of samples has already been proved through use in laboratories.

LABOSTOCKER 150M (LN2 type)

An automated, -150°C ultra-low-temperature storage unit has been added to LABOSTOCKER series lineup. It enables long-term safe storage of biological samples by means of liquid nitrogen vapor-phase cooling. Also, it allows picking in a -150°C environment so that biological samples are free from exposure.
