The cover clamps for 4 deepwell plates (CR1700) assure that the deepwell plates and its sandwich covers are clamped together tightly; the individual wells are hermetically closed. The cover clamp can be mounted onto orbital shaking platforms from a range of suppliers (generally 4 clamps per shaker, so 16 plates, see photo below), and can be used at g-forces up to 3.
Up to four clamps (16 deepwell MTPs) can be mounted onto a standard shaking platform of 40 x 80 cm: the distance between the rows is required to slide in and out the MTPs + sandwich covers
CR1700: cover clamp for 4 deepwell plates + sandwich covers (can be mounted on orbital shakers from most suppliers, with screws)
We also supply cover clamps for two deepwell plates (CR1702, see below)
Since 2014, we also supply such 4-position clamps with a slightly larger groundplate, that allows clamping onto EPFL tables from Kuhner shakers (order number: CR1700c). These clamp systems have rapidly become popular because it allows to clamp the culture- filled MTPs and covers together already outside the shaker cabinet (e.g. already in the laminar flow cabinet where the plates were filled with medium, and inocuated)
