Overview
  • Designed with flexibility and ease of use in mind, the Intellixmark HT is an automated platform capable of permanently marking a wide range of sample tubes with supplementary information such as batch ID, collection site information or even custom graphics or barcodes
  • The Intellixmark HT is an automated platform designed to print text, 1D linear barcodes, 2D data matrix codes and / or graphics directly onto polypropylene sample storage and general-purpose laboratory tubes, substituting the need for labels or stickers for sample identification 
  • Using patent-pending Thermal Pixel Printing technology, the Intellixmark HT prints directly onto the surface of tubes sized from 0.5ml to 50ml
  • Clear and durable marking with consistently legible text and barcodes printed at high resolutions is easier and faster than marking by hand
  • Permanent printing is resistant to water, alcohols (methanol, ethanol, isopropanol), DMSO, haematoxylin, liquid nitrogen and mechanical abrasion 
  • Prints are stable over a wide temperature range from -196°C to 100°C and markings do not transfer when tubes are manually handled
Key Features
Broad compatibility
  • Prints directly on the surface of plastic laboratory and sample storage tubes in seconds 
  • Bespoke, quick release tube picking heads to pick a large range of tubes from 0.5ml all the way up to 50ml screw cap tubes
  • Interchangeable rack nests to accommodate 6 SBS racks, 4 cryo racks and custom SBS racks
Flexible label printing to suit your needs
  • Tubes can be marked in a variety of orientations
  • Can print text, 1D linear barcodes, 2D datamatrix codes and graphic files (monochrome .bmp, .gif, .tiff) such as logos
  • Several lines of text can be printed, such as: sample name, your name, date, time etc.
  • All TrueType fonts available on the connected PC can be printed
  • Font size, type and orientation determines maximum available printable area
High-quality and durable printing
  • Thermal Pixel Printing technology produces clearer and more durable marking than marker pens
  • Metallic blue, black and white ink ribbons are available for a range of colored tubes and colored contents
  • Printing straight onto the tube surface is much easier than marking by hand or adhesive label 
  • Quick and easy to change ink ribbon
  • Marking resistant to 70% ethanol, 70% isopropanol, >98% methanol, DMSO*, pure haematoxylin, liquid nitrogen and mechanical abrasion
  • Printing is temperature resistant from -196°C (liquid nitrogen) to 100°C
  • 300m ink ribbon will mark up to 100,000 tubes** 

*Blue ribbon resistant to 70% DMSO, black & white ribbons resistant to 100% DMSO

**Dependant on size of label print

Ease of use and extra security features
  • 2D code scanner scans 2D codes on a tube base to reproduce within new label or to link information through a LIMS system
  • Linear barcode verifier checks print quality post printing
  • Low ribbon warning
  • LED lighting indicates the operative state of the instrument
  • No requirement for external compressed air
  • LIMS compatible
