The Tube Decapper OEM Module is designed to automate the pre-analytical function of decapping a specimen collection tube by incorporating into your IVD analyser or automation system without creating any additional complexity. At only 52 cm in height, its compact size means it can be integrated into an analyser or automation system without taking up excessive space.
It can reliably decap specimen collection tubes with a wide range of cap closure types seamlessly, including screw caps, push on caps and even conventional rubber bungs improving workflow and efficiency in the laboratory. Tubes can range from 12mm to 16mm in diameter and from 80mm to 120mm in capped height.
An integral electric tube gripper holds and aligns the presented tube with the decapping head. The removed cap is ejected into a waste chute into a waste bin for easy disposal. The waste chute can be easily removed by the operator for cleaning if required. By eliminating the need for any pneumatics, the set up time is reduced along with the overall capital and operating cost.
The Tube Decapper OEM Module can be customised to suit your analysing or automation platform, enabling you to streamline your development time frame.
