• 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.
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 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.
12 rack (or plate) capacity with "quick-change" racks so that high throughput demands can be easily met.
Integrated linear barcode and 2D-datamatrix barcode reading for positive tube identification.
Analytical grade balance provides tare weights, determines liquid compound volume or dry compound weight.
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.
