Key Benefits

If you need to quickly and precisely control of the temperature processes on a robotic deck – go no further. The Heater/Cooler thermoblock provides highly accurate temperature control for the most demanding robotics applications. The module is only slightly larger than a standard microplate. Fully adjustable between 0°C and 100°C and well beyond the cooling & heating accuracies of most other brands, ColdPlate guarantees excellent temperature control for tubes, glass vials or microplates.

Small. Light. Efficient. Quiet.
  • Cooling & Heating in one unit
  • Temperature range 0° to 100°C
  • Perfected thermo adapters
  • First-class aluminium housing
