Automatic Tube Decapper Accelerates Sample Storage Workflow.

micronicpr70-image.jpgMicronic Europe BV, specialists in sample storage solutions, has announced a new Automatic Tube Decapper that accelerates the time consuming and tedious process of removing caps from sample storage tubes.

Easy to install and operate the Automatic Tube Decapper automatically removes and disposes of the caps from a full 96-tube rack in less than 20 seconds. Operation is safe and user friendly - simply place a rack of capped tubes onto the access tray, push the start button and the Automatic Tube Decapper will in one action gently remove all the caps. Not only does the Automatic Tube Decapper increase productivity but it also reduces the possibility of sample cross-contamination with an integrated cap disposal device that ensures that caps are not reused.

The Automatic Tube Decapper can be used as a stand-alone instrument or can be easily integrated into a fully automated environment. Compatible with most brands of coded tube racks and capping products the new system requires just a mains power source for operation.

Typical applications for the Automatic Tube Decapper include storage of biological materials like DNA, cells, blood, tissue and plant materials as well as compound library storage in drug discovery research.

With the ever-growing requirement for higher sample throughput in many laboratories the new Automatic Tube Decapper enables significant productivity gains to be made in the opening of multiple sample storage tubes.

Dedicated to the design and production of innovative sample storage tubes, accessories and instruments over the last 25 years, Micronic is uniquely able to offer laboratories the expert advice to help them safeguard one of its most valuable assets - its samples.

For further information on the new Automatic Tube Decapper please contact Micronic Europe BV or Micronic North America, LLC now on telephone +31-320-277070 / +1-724 941-6411 or email /
