Cytomat™ 6001 and 6001 C4 Automated Wide-Range Incubator

Setting new standards in automated incubation, the Cytomat 6001 provides stable, homogeneous temperature, humidity and CO2 conditions for optimal assay storage and incubation.  Unsurpassed temperature uniformity and stability ensure that your processes can be fully reproduced, providing you with the same high quality results every time.  Excellent parameter stability during loading and unloading at 37°C, with less than 0.05°C and 0.6% rH fluctuation, virtually eliminates recovery times and minimizes assay variance.  The Cytomat 6001 has storage for up to 189 standard microplate, a temperature range of Ta+8°C to 50°C and a humidity level of up to 95% rH.

A single point of integration creates an extremely robot-friendly design, as the robot only needs to be taught one position for plate retrieval. The small access door and Plate ShuttleTM  system allow microplates to enter and exit the unit in seconds, significantly minimizing disruption to the controlled environment. The Plate Shuttle system and access door handle all standard microplate formats including deep-well plates.
