These thermoconductive modules provide reproducible and standardised temperature control to biological samples while on the bench. Place CoolRack® or CoolSink™ modules on ice, dry ice, liquid nitrogen, water baths, heat blocks (–200 to 100 °C), or other vessels and they rapidly adapt to source temperature. Cool, (snap) freeze, or thaw samples consistently and reproducibly without directly inserting them into a temperature source to reduce variability and contamination. CoolRack® tube holders and CoolSink™ plate holders accommodate a wide variety of tubes and plates. Precision engineered, patent-pending construction ensures well-to-well consistency (±0,1 °C) and optimal thermal transfer. Hard anodised surfaces prevent corrosion and rust. Autoclavable, high-heat sterilisable, and compatible with RNase Away, viricides, and other common lab detergents and disinfectants.
CoolRack® tube holders accommodate a variety of tubes from 200 µl through 50 ml. CoolSink™ plate holders accommodate 6-, 12-, 24-, 48-, and 96-well plates, as well as 50 ml reagent reservoirs. CoolRacks® are grey in colour unless noted. Ideal for PCR, protein/nucleic acid handling, tissue freezing, cell culture, virus and bacteria cooling and freezing.
CoolRack® XT (AF) thermoconductive modules provide reproducible and standardised temperature control to biological samples while on the bench. CoolRack® XT (AF) modules feature an SBS-footprint and are designed for brief use on automation platforms. Keep samples cold on the bench or in the refrigerator, then transfer cold samples to the robotic instrument for approximately 10 to 20 minutes of cold processing.
ThermalTray™ platforms support all CoolRack® and CoolSink™ modules in liquid temperature sources such as melted ice, water baths, and liquid nitrogen. Thermoconductive material keeps sample tubes and plates at source temperature for hours (for example, 0,5 to 4 °C for up to 14 hours with one pan of ice). Also provides a solid cold surface for tissue dissection or cryo storage reorganization.
