XTP-1152

The XTP-1152 Tube Picker / Tube Sorter represents a unique combination for rapid picking and processing of all common types of microtube including 0.5, 0.65, 0.75 and 1.4ml tubes (with or without 2D datamatrix barcoding).

  • Capable of tube picking, 2D barcode reading, tube weighing, and liquid handling and tube capping / decapping.
  • Ideal for cherry picking, dilution, reagent addition and sample transfer.
  • Integrated linear barcode and 2D-datamatrix barcode reading.

Overview

The XTP-1152 Tube Picker / Tube Sorter represents a unique combination for rapid picking and processing of all common types of 96-format sample storage tubes (with or without 2D datamatrix barcoding).

 

Capable of tube picking, 2D barcode reading, tube weighing, and liquid handling using either a single fixed or disposable tip system. This combined functionality provides an independent and stand-alone picking and processing centre.

 

Tube picking and sample processing

Integral liquid handling capability. The Xtp-1152 is capable of cherry picking, dilution, reagent addition and sample transfer functions can be integrated into a single tube picking protocol.

 

11 rack (or plate) capacity with "quick-change" racks so that high throughput demands can be easily met.

 

2D-code reading

Integrated linear barcode and 2D-datamatrix barcode reading for positive tube identification.

 

Sample weighing

Analytical grade balance provides tare weights, determines liquid compound volume or dry compound weight.

 

Decapping

A decapping / capping module enables liquid handling steps to be completed, even with a wide variety of screw cap storage tubes and cryovials.

 

The XTP-1152 can perform septum piercing with fixed probe and is suitable for use with most split septum caps.
