SBS Rack De-Icing System

SBS Rack De-Icing System is designed to quickly remove ice and frost from SBS-format racks of frozen sample tubes, to ensure complete readability of 2D datamatrix codes in cold-storage environments

  • Removes frost from any 2D coded tubes in SBS-format racks
  • Complete defrosting in 10 to 15 seconds
  • Defrosting without heat, sample remains frozen
  • User-defined settings depending on rack type
Overview

SBS Rack De-Icing System is designed to quickly remove ice and frost from SBS-format racks of frozen sample tubes, to ensure complete readability of 2D datamatrix codes in cold-storage environments. Sample thawing is not necessary for accurate barcode reading and the SBS Rack De-Icing System de-icing process takes 10 to 15 seconds whilst your sample remains frozen.

Failure to remove frost from a 2D-coded sample tube prior to reading can lead to serious errors. Delays in decoding can result from frosting, and tubes can become completely unreadable if more than 30% of the barcode is frosted.

SBS Rack De-Icing System is a compact and lightweight unit, producing effective defrosting with any type of tube that can be stored in an SBS-format rack. The unit generates a high-pressure air blade, which removes the frost from the bottom of the tubes in a controlled and homogeneous way.

Key Features
  • Broad Compatibility
    • Can be used to defrost any 2D datamatrix coded tubes in SBS-format racks from all manufacturers
    • 24, 48, 96, 240 and 384-format racks are all accommodated
    • PCR tubes  are also supported
    • Defrosting platform has a level, stable and dry surface to aid rapid defrosting
  • Designed with Sample Integrity in Mind
    • Complete defrosting without applying heat, sample remains frozen
    • Sensor confirms when SBS rack is correctly inserted for defrosting
    • No direct heat is applied to the sample tubes, minimizing the risk of sample damage
  • Fast & Flexible Performance
    • Number of air blade cycles, pressure of air flow and the speed that the air blade moves across the rack can be varied to optimize defrosting performance for each rack
    • User-defined settings can be called up depending on rack type
    • Defrosting process typically takes 10 to 15 seconds whilst the sample remains frozen
