| The new Thermo Electron RapidStak provides valuable walk-away time and relief from monotonous tasks. Utilizing a unique buffer nest technology for parallel processing of stacking and plate loading, the RapidStak provides fast, reliable automation for any laboratory in need of increased productivity and walk-away confidence. The RapidStak can be set-up within minutes to most new or existing Thermo instruments, even in the field. |
Fast, High throughput
The RapidStak features a patented choreography and telescoping arm that allows it to deliver plates to the instrument while performing the next stack/destack operation simultaneously. This parallel processing yields a load/unload time of less than six seconds. Maximum throughput of the RapidStak, assuming a 7 second instrument operation, is 300 plates per hour.
Quick and Easy Set-up
The RapidStak is very easy to unpack, set-up and configure. There are no tools required for set-up and if you are automating the Multidrop or Wellwash AC there is no PC required either. Quickly position the RapidStak and instrument relative to one-another and touch up the instrument nest location. All this can be done in the field in minutes.
The RapidStak can grow as your needs grow. The standard two Stak version can be upgraded to the RapidStak 2x, four Stak model, doubling your capacity when you require. This allows you to purchase the less expensive model with confidence, knowing you can expand in the future. All RapidStak models use both the 30 and 50 plate Staks. These Staks are interchangeable and can be mixed and matched for a run.
The RapidStak is designed and made to the same expectations as Thermos large automated systems and industrial robots. This gives the user confident walk-away time.
