Trays for microtiter plates

Kuhner has designed trays specifically for microtiter plates. Handles at the front of the tray open and close the special clamping mechanism allowing plates to be loaded and unloaded. Trays of different heights (22, 47 and 77mm) allow the stacking of up to four microtiter plates. The trays are suitable for all types of plates (deep well, low well, 24, 48 and 96 well).

Trays with sticky mats

A tray fitted with sticky mats is especially useful for flasks shaken at low speeds (up to <200 rpm). The flask is placed directly on the sticky mat without the need for any other support. Flasks of all sizes can be used. Sticky mats are available individually or in sets and can also be supplied already fitted to a tray. The F-size tray accepts 7 mats.
