Sample management systems

Micronic Tube Handler HT700

Next level sorting and managing of your valuable samples with the Micronic Tube Handler HT700. The automated handler answers the need for sorting sample storage tubes more efficiently, quickly and safely. Due to the unique design, the device has a small footprint and a large capacity. There is a minimum distance between the sample to be picked up and the target rack, which makes sorting faster. The closed system guarantees the safety of the user.

A “pick list” that is generated from a LIMS system can easily be loaded with a USB stick. The desired tubes are automatically selected and placed in a target rack. There is room for a maximum of 24 source racks and 1-3 target racks. A log-file is generated when the selection is finished. In combination with the use of Micronic tubes, the device is an excellent and reliable choice for many sample storage tube applications.

Our solutions

Next level tube sorting

Small footprint: due to the unique ‘cassette’ design, the Tube Handler HT700 has a small footprint and a large capacity (24 source racks / 1-3 target racks) compared to other handlers where racks are placed side by side on a platform.

Speed: by making use of cassettes instead of a platform there is a minimum distance between the sample to be taken and the target rack. This makes sorting faster.

Safety: the unique closed system guarantees the safety of the user.

Compatibility: the device is compatible with other brands of sample storage tubes and there are possibilities for a customized device (contact us for more information). It can be used as a stand-alone device or it can be made compatible with LIMS systems.
