The cooling trays in conjunction with an ice bath and a pump provide over five hours of cooling with out refilling the ice. The WellAware Cooler will keep your plates over 10°C cooler than room temperature which is sufficient to significantly reduce evaporation during pipetting of small volumes. The cooling trays are available for 96 or 384-Well plates.
