Steri Store TM

Self-Sterilizing Automated Incubator

 Clean At HighRes, we think your instruments should clean up after themselves

SteriStore sterilizes itself with dry heat — over 150°C for 3 hours, not including ramp-up and ramp-down. That exceeds even the most stringent dry heat sterilization protocols. Plus wipedown is easy because there are no motors, gears, belts, or other mechanisms with nooks and crannies that are easy to contaminate and hard to clean. And the inner chamber is fabricated from stainless steel with smooth, welded corners to eliminate pockets for spore growth.

Cool - Don’t worry about catching heat from SteriStore.

SteriStore is insulated with aerogel (also known as frozen smoke), the lowest-density solid known. Aerogel is also listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the best insulator known to man. Comprised of air pores trapped in a dendritic microstructure, aerogel virtually blocks all three forms of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation. And dual sets of automated doors minimize exposure of the internal chamber to the environment. That’s pretty much the best protection you can give your samples. And yourself.

Fast - Why should your robot wait around for a slow incubator?

SteriStore delivers plates fast (and stores them just as speedily). That’s ultra high-throughput fast. And with two separate transfer nests, SteriStore is designed to wait on the robot, not the other way around. And auto-id of barcoded plate stackers prevent crashing of the spatula due to configuration mistakes.

Friendly Don't fight with your incubator.

SteriStore’s interface is an easy-to use graphical web page. Just point and click–no need to memorize cryptic codes. Navigate from set up to teaching to operation with ease. Network with Ethernet communications, not serial. And with web-based temperature and gas-level monitoring, plus email alerts of alarm conditions, you can be in constant contact with SteriStore.
