Overview
  • Tube Auditor is a fast, accurate and non-invasive device used to measure sample volume in microtubes
  • It can also be used to detect precipitate, and therefore to help understand sample quality
  • It works with capped tubes ensuring that sample quality is not compromised
  • Tube Auditor is compatible with 96-SBS or 48-SBS format racks
  • It can be used as a stand-alone unit or integrated into an automated system
  • If integrated into an automated system, an OPC license is required to enable remote control
  • Tube Auditor measures sample volume and detects precipitate using high-speed vision technology
  • Tube Auditor gives confidence in sample quality (at both collection and output) and helps to reduce downstream costs and waste, which can arise from empty wells and precipitated samples
Key Features
  • High-speed measurement
  • Accurate to better than +/- 10μl; minimizes downstream costs from the processing of empty tubes
  • Precipitate detection: increases confidence in the concentration of delivered output samples
  • Cap detection: helps avoid damage to liquid handling tips caused by failed de-cap operations
  • No need to de-cap tubes: eliminates possibility of cross contamination
  • Manual or remote operation: allows integration into automated system
  • Image storage and recall: allows audit trail and provides ability to re-assess or re-analyze the image
