An expanded automation system for your tube processing application


The compact all-rounder for your laboratory

From opening to sealing: the X-TubeProcessor®_Smart relieves your staff of the manual work with micro-screw tubes.

Set up to six racks with micro-screw tubes, press “Start”, done: processing tubes with the X-TubeProcessor®_Smart is that simple.Despite its compact size, the device is a fully-fledged automation solution that can be flexibly adapted to a wide range of processes and production quantities. The X-TubeProcessor®_Smart not only ensures that your liquids are filled in exactly the right quantity and quality, saving time and resources. It also frees your staff from manual pipetting and the associated risks: contact with potentially hazardous substances, human error, chronic stress symptoms (e.g. repetitive strain injury syndrome). Instead, your employees are deployed where they can develop their full potential.

Capping and Decapping of screw cap tubes
The X-TubeProcessor®_Smart System automates the capping and decapping of screw cap tubes. It is optimized for 0.5 … 2.0 ml Sarstedt Tubes. The screw caps are fed from a bulk hopper and the tubes are in racks. A tube turning gripper picks up the caps from a cap feeder and caps the tubes with a defined torque.

Dispensing of liquids
An optional dispenser module utilizing a peristaltic pump enables precise, sequential filling of tubes with desired reagents. Typical dispensing volumes are in the range of 25ul to … 2,000 μl. The Smart module also allows easy and quick cleaning.

Labeling of tubes
Extend the X-TubeProcessor®_Smart with a labeling module for precise label applications. User-friendly software is available for designing the label layout. The individual data can be supplied via the user interface on the device or via a database connection.

Sorting & Storage
The time of your employees is precious. The Smart allows sufficient walkway time. Without further user intervention, up to 6 SBS Racks, each with 48 tubes can be placed into the X-TubeProcessor®_Smart.

» We needed instruments that could be easily integrated into our routine manufacturing schedule. HTI was able to provide a workflow that suited our processes with minimal footprint. «
