The smart solution for automating your tube processes


The compact all-rounder for your laboratory

From opening to sealing: the X-TubeProcessor®_Smart relieves your employees of the manual work 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 .

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.

Labeling / Labelling Tubes
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.

We needed equipment that could be easily integrated into our routine production schedule. HTI was able to deliver an automation solution that met our processes and took up as little space as possible.
