Scorpion Plate Handling System

The Scorpion Automated Plate Stacker from KBiosystems is designed to operate with standard SBS format plates. There are two main stacker body operational units - a left hand and a right hand feed with two variations of hotels to handle either lidded or non-lidded plates. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The main body of the machine is the same for both lidded and non-lidded plates so to swap between the two formats only requires a simple hotel unit change...
