Unscrewing and tightening caps on tubes is an essential part of the lab process. In the past, this was mostly done manually and took a lot of time. In addition, the repetitive movements caused discomfort and lesions in the hands and arms. Over the years, better and more convenient devices and tools have been developed to productively unscrew and tighten tube caps.
Today, there are highly intuitive machines called automatic cappers and decappers. In addition, manual devices have become a lot faster and more user-friendly. In this way you can significantly reduce the burden on your hands, and increase your work satisfaction. Of course, your productivity increases significantly with the help of these state-of-the-art automatic cappers and decappers.
We offer single cappers and decappers, as well as for a row of 8 tubes, or fully automatic devices, for immediate capping or decapping of racks with 96, 48 or 24 tubes. In this way, there is an intuitive capper/decapper available for every budget.
Of course, your safety is guaranteed when using a decapper. This has been taken into account during the design, and your hands remain free of the moving parts at all times. In addition, efforts have been made to prevent cross-contamination as much as possible. All devices have a small footprint, making them usable in any laboratory.
MICRONIC AND AFYS3G
For these automatic cappers and decappers we make use of the expertise of the unique Dutch company Micronic, which is highly specialized in the production of sample tubes, racks and sample management equipment. The company has many years of experience in this field, and has already helped several laboratories around the world. The company is known for their high quality and innovative products, which do not cost a fortune.
In addition, for labs with a slightly larger budget, we offer an automatic capper and decapper of the brand AFYS3G, which is equipped with a very intuitive touch screen. This device is capable of (de)capping a complete rack in less than 30 seconds, and can be very well integrated into an automatic liquid handling system.
