The Station One thaws frozen samples and reagents in a fraction of the time using only ambient air. Dual fans intake ambient air and channel it upward through a perforated thawing tray where it circulates over and around samples. This simple action decreases sample and reagent thawing times by up to 75% without any application of heat. It eliminates edge effects, cold starts and sample to sample thermal variability. And its fixed platform enables highly reproducible thawing that can be proceduralized and validated under GMP/QSR, USP, and ISO.
