STX44

LiCONiC STX Series
Manufacturer: LiCONiC
Model: STX Series

The STX44 is the smallest member of the STX family. Its 44 MTP capacity make it perfectly suitable of small-scale integration, highly miniaturized applications or short/long time incubation assays. Its compact size makes it ideal for laboratories with room constraints. Its fast retrieval time makes it perfect for throughput issues. The STX44 instruments are available for integration with the instrument placed on the table surface (BenchTop BT) or for integration with the instrument standing on the floor (StandAlone SA).
