Prior Scientific PL200 Slide Loader

PL200 Slide LoaderThe PL-200 Slide Loader is an advanced system for automatic slide handling in a variety of microscope applications. The PL200 is fully supported by Objective Imaging’s Surveyor software with Turboscan, Molecular Devices MetaMorph image acquisition and analysis software, Media Cybernetics Image Pro 7.0.1 software and Nikon NIS-Elements imaging software.

The PL-200 model is designed for 1×3 slides and accommodates up to 200 slides that are housed in four removable slide racks, each of which holds up to fifty slides.  Sensors on the loader monitor the presence of the slide racks so the system can intelligently respond when racks are changed in the middle of a run for example. Installation of a rack on the loader initiates a unique slide detection system which automatically identifies the location of the slides. Prior has optimized both to provide the highest productivity with a complete system capable of performing load/unload cycles in as little as 24s. The units can be used with existing microscopes simply by adding the appropriate Prior scanning stage.

  • 200 (1×3 slides) capacity
  • 15-25s load time
