Suction-type Deep-well Microplate Loader

The Suction-type 96-well, deep well Microplate Bead Loader is fast.  Beads are delivered into 96 wells of microplates at a rate of ~10 microplates per minute.  The loader comes complete with a 96 nozzle loading manifold, a hand held vacuum unit and a foot switch.  Compatible with all 96-well, deep well microplates.

The Suction-type Bead Loader works by vacuuming up 0.4 milliliter of 0.1 to 2.3 mm diameter ceramic beads (glass, zirconia silica or zirconia) into an array of 96 nozzels.  Beads in the nozzles of the loader are retained against stainless steel screens.   While still under suction, the loader is placed over a receiving 96-deep-well microplate and the vacuum unit is turned off with a foot switch.  No longer under suction, the beads drop into the receiving plate.  Typically, the process of loading a microplate only takes a few seconds.  If additional beads are required per microplate the process is repeated.

 Certain beads are not compatible with this loader: Beads larger than 2.3 mm in diameter are too big to fit in the nozzles, heavy steel beads are too heavy to suck up and irregularly shaped "beads"  such as silicon-carbide particles, granet particles or tungsten-carbide particles get stuck in the nozzles.  These bead limits are not imposed by our Manual Microplate Bead Loader, but the loading rate (number of microplates loaded per minute) is considerably slower.

The Suction-type Microplate Beadloader includes the polycarbonate bead-loading manifold, a hand-held, 115VAC vacuum unit, and a foot switch.
