Picking Frozen or Thawed Tubes From 96-Position Racks
The Mohawk semi-automated tube picker from Ziath is a compact system that sets the standard for frozen or thawed sample tube picking from 96-position racks.
The Mohawk has been designed to work out of the box, and needs no set up or calibration. Instrument control is through the new user-friendly software which provides an intuitive interface for easy operation. Tubes can be picked from a single rack or a picklist can be set up to select tubes across multiple racks. Pick list operations are normally started from reading the 1D code on a rack placed onto the Mohawk, but manual selection is also possible. The use of Mohawk tube picking technology avoids slow robotics which takes minutes to process racks; instead a rack can be scanned and tubes selected then picked in seconds. Mohawk also integrates with Ziath scanners to produce and verify a report of the picked rack at the end of the process.
