LabElite Integrated I.D. Capper

LabElite Integrated I.D. Capper

Automated screw cap decapper and barcode reader for liquid handling integration

The Integrated I.D. Capper features all of the utility of the standalone version and allows users to seamlessly integrate these features to their Hamilton Microlab STAR. With the addition of an extended linear rail, tube racks and cap holder racks can be presented directly onto the deck of the STAR allowing for easy automation of tube processing workflows.

New Feature: AutoSwap

The patent-pending AutoSwap is an optional accessory that allows fast and easy switching of labware-specific decapper adapters on the fly without manual intervention, adding new functionality to the LabElite decappers.

  • Switches between any two sets of Hamilton adapters
  • Uses adapters compatible with tubes from all major manufacturers, in 96- or 48-well formats
  • Use in integrated robotic workflows for walkaway automation involving multiple tube types
  • Eliminates the need to stop a process to make manual adjustments for different tube types

Flexible Automated Tube Decapping and 1-D/2-D Barcode Reading

  • Easily swap decapping heads to decap tubes in both 48-cryovial and 96-microtube racks on a single device (patent pending)
  • Process a full rack of tubes or row of tubes in portrait or landscape format within one device (patent pending)
  • Multiple integration configuration options allowing users to directly pipette into decapped tube racks in track positions 1 through 6, or conserve deck space and integrate left of Track 1
  • Optional 1-D barcode reading for racks
  • Multiple tube heights can be read within the same rack
  • Compatible with SiLA (Standard in Laboratory Automation)
  • Highly-configurable output options for smooth integration into LIMS or databases

Sample Security

  • New secure processing mode provides sample security by minimizing the time a tube is opened—only one row is processed at a time by holding caps after decapping and then immediately recapping
  • Point-of-use decapping—limit risk of exposure or contamination from environment
  • Eliminates risk of cross contamination by not moving over opened tubes


  • Automated 2-D barcode reading and optional 1-D barcode reading
  • Using optimized libraries, users can easily incorporate the device into existing VENUS software methods on the Microlab STAR and utilize all of its features to streamline workflows
  • Simple touchscreen interface for walk-up access in between long automated runs


  • 2-D barcode reader processes a 96-microtube rack in less than 3 seconds, and a 384-tube rack in 5 seconds
  • Cutting-edge decoding technology allows for robust and secure identification of even challenging codes
