X! is a stacker for microplates. iX! Holds 80 microplates, and can be used to deliver plates to automated robotic liquid handling equipment, or it can be setup to run as a master in a workstation and interface with readers, washers, and scanners.
The problem we have addressed with this product is that a lot of assays are time critical. At the moment many applications run on liquid handling equipment have to resort to programming tricks to achieve equal incubation times. The iX! resolves this issue by providing a platform where you can store and retrieve plates and racks of tips at random locations and times. With just 15 seconds average access time, you can access any plate in the system at will.
