Cryo-replicator press: The cryo-replicator press (CR1100) is a guiding system for the cryo-replicator and ensures an accurate vertical movement during the sampling of the frozen glycerol stocks or the transfer of 96 colonies into liquid medium. The cryo-replicator press is generally used in a sterile laminair flow cabinet note: the cryo-replicator can be used from free-hand as well. However, application of the cryo-replicator press is strongly recommended.
The replicator press has place to store two additional cryo-replicators. It is advisable to work with more than one replicator, since after each sampling, the replicator has to be sterilised by placing it on a hot plate for 5 minutes. The subsequent cooling down to room temperature requires 12 minutes.
