• XSD capper/decappers are available with optional height detection module for added flexibility.
• XSD units are designed to be used alone or integrated into larger robotic systems.
The XSD range of automated screw cap tube cappers/decappers are available with an optional auto height detection module.
This allows tubes of 2 differing heights to be used within the system, using the same caps.
Sensors on the side of the unit determine the height of the tubes placed within the system and adjust accordingly.
This is particularly beneficial when integrating into a system that uses 2 different tube sizes such as 2ml and 4ml cryo tubes, or 6ml and 10ml large format tubes, in a liquid handling platform as no additional command changes are required to the integration software.
The XSD range of automated screw cap tube capper/decapper are designed to be used as a stand alone system (using the integrated touch panel) or integrated via the inbuilt RS232 port and PCL controlled serial command set.
Compact XSD systems fit easily on the deck of automated sample processors and racks can be easily placed onto the extended reach of the rack shuttle by the gripper arms.
Error reporting and recovery via the RS232 connection allow for reliable integration. Sensors indicate if a cap has not been removed during a decapping cycle.
Easy to replace cap drivers, along with a design that has been optimised for field service, ensures minimal down time for integrated systems.
