HiGro High Capacity Microwell Plate Growth System

HiGro High Capacity Microwell Plate Growth System

Digilab's HiGro® is a high capacity incubating shaker (with orbital shaking and aeration), designed to accelerate sample growth in microwell plates.

These unique features make sample growth in standard 96 or 384 microwell plates ideal for production sequencing and other downstream applications. When used in conjuction with Microwell Plate Cassettes (instrument comes with 4 Microwell Plate Cassettes standard), HiGro simplifies plate handling, storage and organization.

Key features

  • High throughput: 48 shallow-well or 24 deep-well plates
  • Capacity: 4 growth chambers, each holding 1 cassette with 12 shallow-well or 6 deep-well plates.
    Total system capacity is 48 shallow-well plates or 24 deep-well plates.
  • Space-saving design
  • Optimizes growth in 96- and 384-microwell plate formats
  • Easy to load and unload
  • Superior control over growth environment
  • Temperature: Independent control for each chamber. Range is ambient to 55°C. Resolution is 1°C.
  • Shaking: Rotational orbital is 8.0 mm (ideally suited for 96-well growth) or 4.0 mm (ideally suited for 384-well growth)*. Maximum speed is 650 rpm. Resolution is 1 rpm.
  • Gas Flow: Oxygen- or air-ready*. Gas flow rate and timing controls located on instrument front panel.
