Tube Handler HT500 Features

A “pick list” generated from a LIMS system can easily be loaded with a USB stick. The desired tubes are automatically selected and placed in a target rack. There is room for a maximum of 20 racks. A log-file is generated when the selection is finished. In combination with the use of Micronic tubes, the device is an excellent and reliable choice for many sample storage tube applications.

Automating the selection and sorting of sample storage tubes can greatly improve efficiency and accuracy in the lab. The HT500 Tube Handler from Micronic is designed to streamline this process, allowing researchers to pick and place up to 400 96-well format tubes per hour.

Using the HT500 is efficient:

  • 1. Generate a "pick list" from your LIMS system and input it into the HT500 using a USB stick.
  • 2. Utilize the included 1D code reader to scan the rack positions on the platform, source, and target racks.
  • 3. Allow the machine to complete the task.
