ISARA sample changer

IRELEC is the leading worldwide provider of automated systems (robotic sample changers) for the automation of X-ray diffraction experiments on Synchrotron macro-molecular crystallography (MX) beamlines. These automated high-throughput systems guarantee the safe and reliable storage and handling of biological samples at liquid nitrogen temperatures for structural biology research.

Since 2007, IRELEC has been supplying highly versatile systems (CATS), and continuously creating new standards for MX sample changers, whether in terms of reliability, speed, autonomy or user-friendliness.

ISARA, the last generation sample changer by IRELEC, offers the fastest transfer time combined with the highest storage density available on the market, thanks to dual grippers and optimized software.
