Petri Dish Filling Machines – Dedicated

Dedicated Petri Dish Filling Machines

Petri Dish Filling Machines
Dedicated Dish.

These petri dish filling machines are specialized for 55mm, 90mm, 150mm, contact plates and more and run one or two dish types at speeds reaching up to 1,500 dishes per hour, per lane. On an 8-lane machine this is up to 12,000 dishes per hour with extremely efficient use of belt space. One advantage when using IQ 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:

  • Enclosed HEPA drying environment
  • Open lid drying
  • Print station
  • Adjustable dry time
  • Multi-cavity pouring where applicable
  • Additive pump where applicable
  • Meniscus generation where applicable

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

  • Individual nozzle volume control
  • Bulk loader
  • Rotary edge printing
  • Passive edge printing
  • Nozzle heating
  • Packaging
  • Upgrades and maintenance for existing machinery

Petri Dish Filling: IQ-HSL

Based on proven technology, our highest speed dish filling machine has a space saving design that takes up less than half of the footprint of the competition with 100% open dish drying all enclosed in a HEPA filtered environment. This machine provides maximum dish density while drying. Even with lids completely off for drying dishes can almost be touching without causing a problem, allowing maximum belt utilization. High speed stacking using our drop stacking technique avoids stack tip over and other problems found with conventional stackers.
