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.

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 300 tubes.

Sorting to target bins
Illuminated target bins can be removed any time during the sorting process due to an automatic stop function. The target bins hold about 150-200 tubes and are equipped with a light barrier that controls the arrival of assigned samples and prevents overloading.
