AUTOPLAK is an innovative inoculation and streaking device for liquid samples in Petri dishes. It is capable of inoculating an average of 140 dishes per hour and can simultaneously load 120 liquid microbiological samples of any type. It does not need any additional consumables and it is operated by user interaction with a touchscreen. It also includes pre-installed LIS (Laboratory Information System) connectivity.

AUTOPLAK has three default configurations, set for optimal adaptation to three levels of laboratory capacity: Standard, Advance and Full Equip.

Recently, AUTOPLAK has also added two new features: bi-plate streaking and automatic antibiotic disc dispensing for antibiogram testing.
