FluidX™ Aperio™ Semi-Automated Vial Capping and Decapping System

The FluidX Aperio semi-automated system is compact and ideal for use on a benchtop. The system is designed for efficient tube capping in labs with medium to high throughput. Aperio offers the consistency of an automated decapping system, at lower price point. Using a semi-automated hand lever the Aperio system can cap a single column of tubes, from a cap carrier, in under 10 seconds and will cap, or decap, a complete rack of 96 tubes in under 2 minutes.
