As a next natural step once media/ agar has been prepared - we offer the largest selection of automated plate pouring systems in the marketplace, Agar Plate Filler systems by Biotool Swiss. This new series of Media fillers, offers state of the art technology that includes optional text/bar code printing on every plate and programmable dish height stacking. Touch screen programming is standard on every Biotool instrument. It incorporates easy to follow menu instructions so the user does not need a Manual, backlit graphic display for perfect read-off and automatic device self-diagnosis ensures that the system is ready for operation even before the process is started. These innovative automated plate pouring systems, consist of an Economical version - the PS20 automatic plate pourer, Carrousel Agar filler - the PS 200 / 400 automatic plate pourer and a large capacity Agar Filling System- the PS900 automatic plate pourer. They are designed to be much more flexible and reliable compared to traditional carrousel compared to traditional carrousel media and agar fillers. Our Media pourers are user friendly and engineered for batch, or continuous operation with minimal down time.
Another downstream tideous activity done in many labs after preparing media and buffer is filling dilution test tubes and bottles -The new TF-3000 from Biotool Swiss automated tube and bottle filler automates the repetitive labor intensive process of filling of tubes & bottles. Set up is easy, just place the rack* (you can practically use most commercial rack in the market - * as long as it fits on the filling platform and the tubes are held tightly in place and kept in an upright straight position), train the intelligent yet simple to use software about the position of your racks, size of tubes and requested filling volume and let the TF-3000 do the rest.

The Biotool systems are truly “walk away” plate pouring systems. There are multiple sensors that detect if a plate is not present or upside down and will not pour unless all conditions are correct. When maintained well (cleaned and a yearly preventative maintanance done on the unit) there is very little operator intervention required during operation of the systems. The plates are automatically stacked at the required height (1 – 20) so the lab technician does not have to manually move the poured plate.
The plates are opened under UV light during the pouring stage preventing contamination during this process and kept open for only few seconds,. he lab technician is protected from the UV light by a protective cover with safety switch that turns off the UV light when the cover is open.
Yes- the systems can be connected to a media preparer such as the Proficlave PC10 / 20 to insure that the agar remains at the proper dispensing temperature, well stirred and sterile.
The Biotool PS900 and PS20 system uses 90 – 100mm beveled (automation) plates. We ask you to send one sleeve of your plates so we can adjust the system prior to the delivery to your laboratory. The PS200 filler works with most 90-100mm plates.
The Biotool systems are equipped with a dual head pump that eliminates air bubbles during the dispensing of media, keeping it smooth. in addition, the PS900 and PS200 systems are equipped with an additional vibration system to actively smooth the agar. These systems will produce smooth and level plates.
Yes, any of our systems can draw media from a flask or any other container. The Proficlave PC10 or 20 insures that the media is at the proper dispensing temperature, properly mixed and sterile.
Yes – the PS900 system can accommodate any stack height from a single plate up to 20 plates.
Yes – the systems let you choose any stack height from 1 to 20 (remember, lower stacks will cool faster due to smaller heat residue).
