XT Starter

XT Starter bench top cooling systems provide sample cooling or freezing without ice, electricity or batteries

  • Open-platform ice-free cooler
  • Fits most CoolRack and CoolSink modules
  • Low profile and small footprint
  • Keeps samples cold for up to 4 hours
  • Monitoring of temperature performance
Overview
  • CoolBox ice-free systems are bench top cooling workstations that provide sample cooling or freezing without ice, electricity or batteries
  • CoolBox systems are versatile and accommodate a variety of sample formats and temperatures
  • The modular design enables the use of CoolRack and CoolSink thermo-conductive sample modules to hold microfuge tubes, cryogenic vials, PCR tubes or plates, assay plates and more
Key Features
Secure sample preparation
  • Operates without ice, batteries or electricity
  • Keeps samples at a uniform 0.5 to 4.0°C for up to 4 hours
  • The built-in 1-8ºC temperature indicator provides visual assurance of operational temperature while working
Broad compatibility
  • Versatile: accommodates most CoolRack and CoolSink modules
  • Low profile and small footprint ideal for use in the hood especially in keeping temperature sensitive solutions cold
  • To extend the cooling duration, keep an additional XT Cooling Core in the freezer and replace the core as needed
How it works: ease of use
  • Freeze the XT Cooling Core in -20°C freezer
  • Place frozen core in base
  • Rest CoolRack or CoolSink module on core
  • Module will equilibrate and maintain temperature via thermo-conductivity
  • To extend the cooling duration, keep an additional XT Cooling Core in the freezer and replace the core as needed
