The STX1000 is the largest carrousel based incubator of the StoreX series. Like the STX500 the STX1000 can be configured as double Decker carrousel allowing 880 MTP using 2x2 levels of standard 540 stackers or 1000 MTP using 680 stackers on the upper deck or configured as single deck using 1200 stackers maximizing its capacity to 1060 MTP. Despite its large capacity, the STX1000 with its 770mm depth and 1970mm height will still fit through any laboratory door or in any maintenance elevator. The wheels lock into place to ensure stability at the workstation.
The STX1000 Series supports a wide temperature and humidity range. Namely the STX1000 is available as IC (Incubation), HC (high humidity cold storage), DC (dry, low humidity cold storage, DF (Deep Freezer), HR (high humidity wide temperature range incubator), DR (dry, low humidity wide temperature range storage) and AR (adjustable humidity). The mechanical dimensions of all STX1000 are identical and independent of any Climate Options.
The STX1000 houses two independently operating carrousels. The transport lift is located on the back side of the incubation chamber between the two carrousels having three rotation positions - left carrousel, right carrousel and transfer station position. The Gate and therefore the transfer station are located in the center of the back side of the instrument.
Two large user doors on the front side of the incubator allow simple and easy manual access to the plates inside the incubation chamber. For manual access the carrousels may be positioned automatically or rotated manually.
Like all members of the StoreX family the STX 1000 can be equipped with a large number of options and a wide selection of useful accessories. For details please refer to Options or Accessories.
