Accurate & Productive Microplate Seal Piercer

velocity11pr64-image.jpgThe Microplate Seal Piercer from Agilent Automation Solutions is a low cost automated microplate piercing station ideal for screening and compatible with a variety of seals and pin plates. Designed for productivity the Microplate Seal Piercer is able to accurately pierce 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 microplate with a penetration depth of 3 mm, even with deep well microplates. The Agilent Microplate Seal Piercer can be used either as a stand-alone unit, or integrated into a robotic system through the ActiveX control and RS-232 serial port connection. Indicator lights on the machine alert the operator of the machine status (ready, busy, stop, low air pressure), and a microplate alignment sensor ensures that the microplate is correctly positioned in the microplate 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.
