In Detail

Sample registration
Sample tubes are registered via a high-performance barcode scanner for a fast and reliable sample tube identification.

Cap-color identification
A unique, in-house developed spectrometer identifies the cap-color of every single tube enabling a plausibility check between tube type and corresponding barcode.

Sorting rules
Sorting of tubes occurs by customer-defined rules based on cap-color and/or barcode information or by LIS-transmitted rules. Wipers smoothly guide the tubes into target bins.

SIQ-bin
External bin for samples in question.

User interface
Intuitive and simple operation via colored touchscreen.

Bulk loader
Easy and continuous sample loading in bulk, with a capacity of up to 600 tubes.
