Petri Dish Filling Machines
Dedicated Dish

Select petri dish filling machines specialized for 55mm, 90mm, 150mm, contact plates and more. One of the advantages of using our filling machines over the competitors is that our machines take up less space, even though the lids are completely off for faster drying. Our petri dish filling machines can be used with diagnostic culture media, tissue culture, agricultural filling processes and anything else that requires filling of petri dishes. Production rates on our machines are based on a three minute dry time. Custom machines quoted upon request.

All of our petri dish filling machines come with the following standard modules:

The following options are also available for our petri dish filling equipment:
