Magnetic Loading/Testing Wand
The Magnetic Loading and Testing wand is used with the Cassette Loading Guide Tool to transfer samples into SSRL cassettes. This wand contains two magnets, a strong magnet on one side for removing samples and a weaker magnet on the opposite side for inserting samples into cassettes. A maroon stripe on the weaker magnet is used to test the size of pin bases – good pins will easily cover the entire maroon stripe when placed on the weaker magnet end of the loading wand.
These tools work with the complete cassette kit (CP-111-020) . For directions on the use of these tools see the users guide on the SSRL website.
