Product News: Micronic offers award-winning recappers to scale-up sample processing

Micronic increases the efficiency of the sample storage or testing process by accelerating the capping and decapping of screw cap tubes

01 Sep 2020


With an extensive range of versatile Screw Cap Recappers, Micronic aims to increase the efficiency of the sample storage or testing process by accelerating the capping and decapping of screw cap tubes.

Micronic offers two product lines, the Screw Cap Recapper CS500 series, and the Screw Cap Recapper CS700 series. The recappers are compatible with either 96-well, 48-well, or 24-well format sample storage tubes from Micronic or tubes from other brands.

Screw Cap Recapper CS500

The CS500 Recapper is a handheld device which enables users to recap a row of tubes in 5 seconds and a whole rack of tubes in less than a minute. In addition, the cost-efficient device ensures optimal sealing performance by sealing tubes securely and uniformly. The recapper provides an ergonomic solution for both left and right-hand users. Additionally, the light-weight device doesn’t require a battery and is therefore always available to use once plugged in. The device is easy to use for a wide range of research applications.  

Screw Cap Recapper CS700

The Micronic Screw Cap Recapper CS700 can be used as a stand-alone instrument or be simply integrated into a fully automated laboratory environment. This makes the screw cap recapper ideal for high throughput workflows and to relieve researchers from repetitive manual labor. The device can recap a whole rack of sample storage tubes in 30 seconds. Additionally, the Ethernet connection creates many possibilities for different communication protocols. Because the recapper is also equipped with an interface (API), the device can be integrated into larger robotic systems like liquid handlers. An optional sensor verifies that all caps have been removed for an effective use of the device in an automation process. The Screw Cap Recapper uses a precisely determined torque value for optimal sealing quality thereby minimizing evaporation and maximizing the integrity of valuable samples. 

The reliable and robust Micronic Screw Cap Recappers come with a 1-Year warranty. Micronic’s labware equipment is designed and assembled in-house. At Micronic, high quality and a high level of service are of paramount importance. By assembling equipment in-house, Micronic's equipment assembly personnel and engineers have the first-hand knowledge and skills necessary to perform services quickly and smoothly.
