LabElite® DeCapper and I.D. Capper Help to Speed Results while Protecting Against Coronavirus Exposure

Hamilton Storage named the LabElite® DeCapper and I.D. Capper as urgent hands-free solutions for diagnostic and research laboratories working with SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. As such, incoming orders of these products related to the pandemic will be prioritized for rapid delivery throughout the world.

The LabElite DeCapper and I.D. Capper automate tube decapping and capping in a rapid, hands-free manner to protect users from contact with the highly infectious coronavirus while also reducing the risk of sample contamination. The devices are compatible with a variety of internally or externally threaded tubes and vials in 24-, 48-, and 96-format tube racks. Additionally, the I.D. Capper offers high-speed 1D and 2D barcode scanning with automatic upload of barcode information to a connected LIMS.

“We see a significant uptick in demand for these high-throughput, hands-free products due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and remain strongly dedicated to supporting those who are bravely tackling this virus from all angles,” says Matthew Hamilton, President of Hamilton Storage.
