Brooks Life Science Systems introduces FrostX2™
Faster Frost Removal with the Power of Air!
De-ice and dry your SBS-footprint labware 10x faster for improved readability and faster processing of your 2D barcode samples.
FrostX2 allows you to remove frost from SBS-footprint labware coming from freezers in order to be able to read all 2D barcodes on the sample storage tubes. FrostX2 generates a high-pressure vertical air blade which, when applied to the frost on the bottom of the tubes, removes it in a controlled and homogeneous way either by fast evaporation or mechanically in 10-15 seconds while the sample remains frozen.
De-ice and dry your SBS-footprint labware 10x faster than ever before to make sure your 2D barcodes are readable and your freezers stay ice-free.
- Smarter – Removes ice/frost without damaging or degrading sample quality
- Safer – Keeps sample frozen to ensure integrity and ensures freezers stay ice-free
- Faster – the de-icing process takes 10-15seconds
- Flexible – handles any SBS rack format and freeze box sized sample racks
- Reliable – de-ices sample consistently across an entire sample rack
