CMR-3011 is a  35 mm (1.5 in) diameter port for the ColorFlex that is designed to center a disposable polystyrene tissue culture dish (35 mm OD/30 mm ID x 10 mm high), to measure small quantities of powder, granules and pastes.

Disposable plastic Fisherbrand Media-Miser Disposable Petri Dish, (35 mm OD/30 mm ID x 10 mm high), clear polystyrene, are available from a third-party source – Fisher Scientific www.fishersci.com, catalogue number 08-757-11YZ .

If the sample is effectively opaque, there should be no need to cover the sample dish at the port. If not, order 04-4000-00 Sample Cup Opaque Cover to serve as a consistent black surround.

FAQ: “Do you have the same for LabScan XE?”

LabScan XE/VSI CMR-2836 Port for 35 mm (1.5 in) diameter dish provides a port insert for the same disposable, tissue culture dishes. The LabScan XE must be fitted with the VSI – Variable Sample Illumination option to image a 25 mm (1.00 in) diameter area of view of the dish.
