Includes CoolBox XT System, automation-compatible CoolRack XT M24 to hold 24 1.5ml or 2.0ml microfuge tubes.
Easily transfer samples from the CoolBox XT cooling workstation to the robotic platform for brief cold processing (approx 20-30 minutes <10℃). CoolRack XT M24 tube module can be used to store samples in the refrigerator or freezer and then transferred to the CoolBox XT system for over 16 hours of ice-free cooling on the benchtop, in the tissue culture hood or in the clean room. Use the optional XT Freezing Core to keep the samples frozen for up to 8 hours or use with dry ice for snap freezing. Minimize risk of contamination from microorganisms and nucleases.
Applications include qPCR, RNA assays, tissue culture, snap-freeze bacteria, virus or protein samples, short transport of temperature-sensitive samples from lab to lab, field to lab, patient to clinic.
