Features of the DeCapper

  • Easily swap decapping heads to decap tubes in 24-, 48-, and 96-format tube racks on a single device
  • Decap only tubes needed—all rows, selected rows or columns, or partial racks
  • Process tubes in portrait or landscape format within one device
  • Can be operated as a standalone device or integrated with a Microlab VANTAGE Liquid Handling System or third-party robotic arm
  • Built-in Secure Mode ensures an optimal seal during capping to eliminate cross threading
  • Minimize the time a tube is open using optional Row Loop Mode—only one row is processed at a time by holding caps after decapping and immediately recapping

New Feature: 6-Channel Head

  • Enables use of 24-format tubes in addition to 48- and 96-format tubes
  • Decaps a wide variety of internally or externally threaded tubes and vials
  • Allows laboratories to work with tube volumes and types that are most appropriate for their specific needs
