Steri StoreTM

Self-Sterilizing Automated Incubator
Clean We think your instruments
should clean up after themselves

SteriStore is the only automated microplate incubator that sterilizes itself with dry heat — over 150°C for 3 hours, not including ramp-up and ramp-down. That exceeds even the most stringent dry heat sterilization protocols, killing even extremophiles and prions. Plus, you can validate SteriStore's sterilization cycle with standard spore-kill tests, unlike competing laboratory incubators that feature only "decontamination" routines. Wipe down is easy because there are no gears, belts, or other mechanisms with nooks and crannies that are easy to contaminate and hard to clean. This makes the SteriStore your premiere choice for a cell culture incubator, tissue culture incubator, or your overall choice for an automated lab incubator.

Cool Don't worry about catching heat from SteriStore

SteriStore is insulated with aerogel (also known as frozen smoke), the lowest-density solid known. Aerogel is also listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the best insulator known to man. Comprised of air pores trapped in a dendritic microstructure, aerogel virtually blocks all three forms of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation. Dual sets of automated doors minimize exposure of the internal chamber to the environment, which is important in a cell culture incubator. That's pretty much the best protection you can give your samples, as well as yourself.

Fast Why should your robot wait around for a slow incubator?

Its about the speed of your workflow, not the velocity of your plates. With up to six separate transfer nests, SteriStore is the most efficient lab incubator for your process. And auto-id of barcoded plate stackers prevents crashing due to configuration mistakes.

Friendly Don't fight with your incubator

SteriStore's interface is an intuitive graphical web page—no need to memorize cryptic codes. Navigate from set up to teaching to operation with ease. Quickly access run data and environmental history. Network with Ethernet communications, not serial. As the only automated incubator on the market that comes standard as CO2 incubator ready, you won't have to worry about your changing incubator needs. Web-based temperature and gas-level monitoring plus email alerts of alarm conditions makes monitoring your laboratory incubator a breeze.
