Specialized laboratory stands [Downloadable 3D models]

Prototype laboratory stands dedicated to COPAN Floqswabs for testing for SARS-CoV-2 virus.


The aim of the project was to quickly manufacture stands for the Warsaw Genomics laboratory, which currently performs up to 1000 tests per day. The purpose of the 96-slot stands is to facilitate and secure (stabilize) the test-tubes when working with samples. The stands are foldable and very easy to print / modify.

Based on this solution, we’ve built more models dedicated to other types of test-tubes used in the sample testing process.

We will constantly update our solutions according to the feedback from research laboratories.

If you want to manufacture stands for others  BE SURE TO READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY:

– Keep the maximum possible caution and sterility of production. Use preventive measures in accordance with the current recommendations of the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate.

– Inform the person/company for which you deliver the parts of the conditions in which you manufacture the laboratory stands.

– Do not store all prints in one place. Limit the possibility of contamination.
