Sci-Print BB Dispensing

Semi automated Metal Ball Dispenser

The BB Dropper is a small, bench-top instrument designed to dispense metallic BBs into microtiter plates, deep well blocks, and tube blocks. It is commonly used in a variety of agricultural labs for genome grinding and pulverization. 

The operating height of the dispensary mechanism is adjustable to accommodate various plate/block heights (up to 80mm) furthering its usability. Its microprocessor program allows for automatic operator prompting, device control, and error checking. With RS-232 control, the device can also be integrated into a robotic work cell.
