Process Array Tape® Counters

Tape Counter

Douglas Scientific has adapted off-the-shelf carrier tape counters to process Array Tape, giving the end user a quick way of counting the number of arrays in a given length of Array Tape.

A secondary use of the tape counter is to wind Array Tape in the opposite direction with wells facing out onto a different spool.

Array Tape Centrifuges


Douglas Scientific has retro-fitted select models of centrifuges to spin Array Tape and force the sample to the bottom of the well. An air knife that blows a steady stream of air through the spool of Array Tape aids in the removal of moisture that may have become trapped between layers during water bath PCR.
