A high throughput systems for your flexible automated process
Pipetting, dispensing, labeling of tubes, labeling of screw caps, screwing, opening, IPC, sorting, storing and much more. and preferably at the same time. Our X-TubeProcessor®_Ultra supports your flexible process with the processing of up to 1,000 tubes per hour. Different modules can be used to handle up to 10 processes in parallel. HTI’s Ultra systems are characterized by universal application possibilities, high accuracy and compact design. The X-TubeProcessor_Ultra also shows maximum flexibility with micro screw tubes. You can use tubes or cyrovials from Sarstedt, LVL, Micronic, Matrix or other manufacturers.
The screwdriver and cap handler
The X-TubeProcessor®_Ultra automates the opening and closing of tubes. We offer solutions for various tube and screw cap sizes and types. Fully automatic feeding of tubes and screw caps via a tube or cap feeder is possible. Both screwed and open tubes can be fed to the unit as bulk material. The cap feeder can be optionally equipped with a color sensor. This checks the color of the caps and sorts out the wrong caps.
Dosing, pipetting and dispensing liquids
The tubes can preferably be filled sequentially with reagents. Depending on the requirements, several peristaltic and/or syringe pumps are available. The Syringe pumps are used for pipetting/dispensing of smaller filling volumes. Especially with very small liquid volumes, pipetting is very precise, so that the reproducibility of the results is ensured at all times. The change of pipette tips can be freely selected. Peristaltic pumps (peristaltic pump) are provided for dispensing larger volumes. It is possible to cool the output vessel (reagent vessel) and to integrate a weighing module for monitoring dispensing volumes.
The X-TubeProcessor®_Ultra can be extended with a labeler module for labeling tubes and/or caps. Printing is done individually or in batches in the same way. The label information can be fed via the operating menu on the device or via a database connection. Various marking systems such as laser, thermal transfer or inkjet can be used. Of course, pre-printed labels can also be applied.
Feeding, Sorting & Storage
Do you need a whole rack storage or is individual tube feeding important to you? Or even a combination of both? The feeding as well as the final storage of the tubes can be done in bulk or in single or in a number of up to 50 racks in an automated rack storage system. Talk to us and together we will define your individual solution.
Reliable traceability in the work process is possible at all times with our products. Barcodes can be read on racks and tubes and processed according to the stored requirements.
We offer tube handling solutions also for sterile applications. For this purpose, the devices are equipped with special hoods, Hepa filters and laminar flow.
The user-friendly and intuitive software runs on an external laptop or PC. Various criteria can be defined for editing the tubes and individual modules can be selected or deselected.
To start the machine, you can select the created jobs in an overview or alternatively enter them directly on the user interface. A menu guides you through the input steps. Jobs can be transmitted to the control software via an interface (SOAP- TCP/IP protocol).
Messages, malfunctions or news can be transmitted via an email output, among other things. In this way, you will be quickly and reliably notified of machining events even if you are not currently at the plant.
