automated capping of screw cap tubes
Automated capping of screw cap tubes - Capit-All
Capit-All is a standalone product for automated capping of screw cap tubes held in racks.
It takes approximately 10 seconds to automatically decap all the tubes simultaneously within a rack, with each tube staying in its allotted place. The rack can then be removed by the user for further manual processing. When presented back to the unit it will automatically recap all the tubes.
Capit-All improves laboratory efficiency and reduces the risks associated with repetitive manual processing of large numbers of screw-cap microtubes. This is achieved in a very flexible, easy to operate and use system for automated capping of screw cap tubes which works 'out of the box'.
Capit-All is a new bench top system designed for use in any standard laboratoy or microbiological safety cabinet .It is ideal for laboratories already using screw-cap vials to store samples, or for laboratories that are considering replacing split septum seals with screw-cap tubes.
