All plate formats that match to the SBS Standard for microplates, for example:

MTP (up to 1536-Well)
96- and 384-well PCR-plates (skirted, semi-skirted, unskirted)
Deep well plates (up to 384-Well)
Cell culture plates (6-, 12-, 24-, 48-, 96- and 384-well)

The BioShake iQ/XP UNIVERSAL SPRING CLAMPSSuitable for all microplates

In the corners eight spring clamps are inserted for easy fixation of microplates and deep well plates in SBS format 127.7 x 85.5 mm without an attached adapter. These spring clamps lock the microplate quickly and safely, even at the highest mixing frequencies.

For flexible and deformable PCR plates we recommend using of the related PCR adapter.

Fast mixing processes with frequent plate changes can be performed in the routine as easy and safe.

The exchange of adapter plates can be performed very easily within one minute. All adapters will be automatically detected while mounting on the instrument. The allocation of the adapter to a particular category determines the properties. All pending information and indications are shown in the display.
