LaboStocker® 150Me

LaboStocker 150Me LaboStocker 150Me feature1 LaboStocker 150Me feature2

We have added a -150℃ automated cryogenic temperature storage unit to the LaboStocker series lineup. Samples can be stored securely for a long period using a liquid nitrogen cooling system. Picking is also automated in the -150℃ enviroment to avoid exposure from an ambient temperature.

Features

  • The unit maintains sample quality by eliminating exposure with storing and picking at -150℃.
  • Exposure of samples when inserting or extracting them is reduced with the use of a freezing box.
  • 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.
  • Condensation and frost are prevented by controlling humidity in a nitrogen environment.
  • Various tubes such as 96 tubes and cryotubes are available to be picked up and be stored.
    *A Picking unit can be manufactured according to the size of the tube. Please contact us for more information.
  • With liquid nitrogen gas phase storage, cooling is maintained even during a power failure or liquid nitrogen supply interruption.
  • The same operation and management as the other LaboStockers is possible. It consists of proven software already in use in the laboratories, such as the reservation function and storage and retrieval history management.

Specifications

Dimensions (WxDxH) 1500mm(59 in) x 1800mm (71 in) x 2600mm(102 in)
Storage Capacity 20,000 tubes (using the 96 screw cap tubes 1.3ml type)
Storage Temperature -150℃ at a storage&picking area
Cooling method Gas phase liquid nitrogen

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® 80

LaboStocker 80

The LaboStocker 80 is a storage unit with automatic picking functionality that enables the high demand storage at −80℃. Microtubes, 384 tubes, and plates(SBS Standards) are stored individually in the freezer area. Transfer capability is fast and accurate with our original transfer unit and picking unit.

Features

  • Compact size with high storage capacity.
  • 3 racks can be stored at a time using a special designed cartridge.
  • Backup cooling device (Carbon dioxide gas)
  • Samples are automatically transferred to the -80℃ freezer area in case of emergency error.
  • Prevent exposure with faster 2D reading
  • Rack and tube separation function installed
  • Sample control by barcode and 2D code

Specifications

Storage Capacity 51,408 tubes (using the 48 tubes 2ml type)
Storage Temperature Freezer area : -80℃
Picking area : -20℃
Picking Speed 60 tubes/hour (at 1 tube/rack) ~ 300 tubes/hour (above 3 tubes/rack)
Storage Size Installation area : 5.1m × 2.1m = 10.71m2
Storage height : 2.3m (0.1m gap included)

LaboStocker® mini

LaboStocker mini

The LaboStocker mini is the ideal solution for those who have limited instllation spaces but need the benefits of automated sample storage systems with temperature-control. The small sized automated storage system provides as much storage capacity as possible. The storage units are easily expandable. The same as the conventional model: microtubes, 384Tubes, and plates(SBS Standards) are stored individually in the freezer area. Picking capability is fast and accurate using the transfer unit and picking unit.

Features

  • The size is even more compact with a high storage capacity.
  • The storage capacity can be easily expanded by installing more units.
  • Easy to install and deliver. Delivery by units → Delivery by a elevator is possible. (See Note1)
  • Data can be searched or samples in/out instructed from the individual researcher terminals.
  • Managing data such as samples, the amount of sample remaining and picking count.
  • Standard units can be combined with storing and picking capacities and layouts to meet your needs.
  • Barcode and 2D code reading for secure control
  • The data can be shared with existing LaboStockers when installed.

Note 1: The size of the space in the elevator must be more than 1,050mm × 2,000mm × 2,000mm (W×H×D).
