Product Description

IBI STS-45i Vertical Sequencing System is constructed of durable cast acrylic for years of faithful service.

  • Designed with the user in mind. The patented slant-back feature prevents the glass plates from falling forward during setup. The white enamel thermoplate not only distributes heat evenly to prevent smiling or frowning, but is a perfect background to follow the dye’s progression. The patented easy-turn knobs provide even pressure to the glass plates and thermoplate ensuring sharp bands without distortion. Both lower and upper electrodes are made from corrosion-resistant platinum. The formed lower reservoir is removable for easy disposal of radioactive material. The STS-45i upper and lower reservoirs are equipped with interlocking safety covers to help protect the user.
  • Power to the STS-45i is supplied by an external DC voltage power supply. This power supply must be ground isolated in such a way that the DC voltage output floats with respect to ground. The power should have two no-load and ground fault safety features.
  • The maximum specified operating parameters for this unit are: 3000 VDC maximum voltage limit, 70 W maximum power limit, and 50⁰C maximum ambient temperature limit.
