The compact all-rounder for your laboratory
Longer walkaway time
thanks to processing of up to 6 racks
Reproducible, safe and efficient processes
due to sensor-stabilized and time-saving machining processes, as well as sterile working environment thanks to HEPA filter
Adaptation to a wide range of processes and different production volumes
thanks to its various processing capacities and individual workflows.
No interference with laboratory processes thanks to compact size and quiet operation
Easily expand your laboratory with minimal space requirements and short delivery time of the device
(when using Sarstedt tubes)
“We needed equipment that could be easily integrated into our routine production schedule. HTI was able to deliver an automation solution that fit our processes and took up as little space as possible.”

Available modules in _Smart for the automation of your tube processes
Screwing and uncapping micro screw tubes
The Smart automates the opening and closing of tubes. The devices are specially designed for 0.5 … 2.0 ml Sarstedt Tubes. The screw caps (caps) are fed in bulk, the tubes in racks. A tube rotary gripper picks up the caps from a cap feeder and screws the tubes with a defined torque.
Dispensing of liquids
An optional dispenser module based on a peristaltic pump enables precise, sequential filling of the tubes with reagents. Typical dispensing volumes are in the range of 25ul … 2,000 μl.
The Smart allows easy and quick cleaning of the interior.
Expand the X-TubeProcessor®_Smart with a labeling module for precise application of your labels. User-friendly software is available for designing the label layout. The individual data can be fed via the user interface on the device or via a database connection.
Sort & Store
Your employees’ time is precious. The Smart allows a sufficiently large walkway time. Automated processing takes place in up to 6 SBS racks with 48 tubes each without further user intervention.
“The most important criterion for our business lies in the quality and reproducibility in the manufacture of our products. We were looking for a compact device, an all-in-one solution that would perform the filling of our wash buffers reliably and in the perfect walk-away time for us – and we found it in the SMART.”
Increase the capacity and process reliability of your laboratory through automation.
The Tube and Fluid Handling System is a comprehensive-automated solution designed to optimize tube handling, fluid transfer, and sample processing in a variety of laboratory applications.
Service and support – Acting instead of reacting
Avoid downtime in your operation: As part of a customized service contract, we proactively maintain your products via routine on-site and remote maintenance. In addition, our training courses teach you everything you need to know as a user about the proper handling of your device.
We supply: Labels, racks and other laboratory consumables.
The partner at your side: HTI is a specialist for the automation of laboratory tubes. And this for 30 years. We not only take care of our machines, but also advise you and supply you with the right materials for your processes.
The compact all-rounder for your laboratory
From opening to closure: the X-TubeProcessor®_Smart relieves
your employees from having to work manually with micro screw tubes.
Set up to six racks of micro-screw tubes, press “Start”, done: processing tubes with the X-TubeProcessor®_Smart is that easy. Despite its compact size, the device is a full-blown automation solution that can be flexibly adapted to a wide range of processes and production quantities. This makes the X-TubeProcessor®_Smart suitable for more demanding applications even where space is limited.
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.
