Semi-Automated Screw Cap Decapping

The new LabElite Handheld DeCapper is designed to provide fast, repeatable 6- or 8-channel decapping/capping of tubes in 48- and 96-format tube racks with internal or external threads. The device incorporates the same interchangeable adapter technology used in Hamilton Storage’s line of benchtop decappers, allowing for superior labware flexibility in terms of both brand and format.

With an ergonomic grip, along with intuitive Decap, Cap, and Eject buttons, the Handheld DeCapper provides a user-friendly experience while adding efficiency and speed to workflows. Additionally, the device helps maintain sample integrity and prevent sample loss by capping tubes with optimal torque thanks to five preset torque levels to accommodate a variety of labware.
