Media Plate Filler

Fill any plate with any media

The Media Plate Filler fills plates easily and accurately. Compatible with 90mm petri dishes, omnitrays, and up to 24-well microtiter plates

The key immediate benefits discovered are: cut plating time in more than half, very precise filling volumes of media and no contamination.

Pours up to 4 different media at once – both solid and liquid media
Run time: 10-30 minutes
Run 45 petri dishes or 30 microtiter plates per batch

Precision technology

Downscale to enable new assays reliably

  • Fill plates automatically with ±2% precision
  • Plates are stationary for perfectly even surfaces
  • No contamination when filling plates
  • Perfect for downstream automation applications

“By trying Reshape Biotech’s Media Plate Filler, we realized how quickly we could produce 24-well format microtiter plates for custom media and food analogues.
Plates were manufactured with great speed and the result is a great, even surface for spotting. Cleaning procedures were tested and plates were incubated for cross- and carryover contamination with no issues. The plates produced with the Media Plate Filler were of the highest possible quality. I can only give the Media Plate Filler my highest recommendation.”

Cleaning procedure

In order to ensure cleanliness of the operation, two options are available:

  1. Cleaning with 100℃ demineralised water. The Media Plate Filler is equipped with a cleaning program using hot water. Simply insert the tubes into a container with hot water after a run and press the button. This method is suggested for sterile media.
Change tubes
  1. Removal of tubes. The Media Plate Filler has easily changeable tubing. In case a more thorough cleaning is required, the tubes can be removed and cleaned separately. This method is suggested for non-sterile media.
