Update: New unit provided and it works really well.
Application Area: Decapping
"UPDATE: Customer service improved and new decapping head unit works well. Eventually we were provided with a loaner unit that has new model head that performs much more consistently than the previous model. Happy with the new head."

Inconsistent. Not worth the money.
"Results are inconsistent. Sometimes it perfectly decaps and recaps. Other times, it has broken and mangled tubes. Recently it has lifted the whole rack up because it didn't fully unscrew one cap. The rack was wedged in the machine and it almost spilled all the tubes had I not been watching to stop it and forcibly remove the rack. No loaner unit for PMs, and poor customer service. Looking for better options."
The Micronic Screw Cap Recapper CS700 offers users the ability to cap, decap or recap 96 tubes with Screw Caps in a single action. Designed to improve efficiency, the Micronic Screw Cap Recapper can be used as a stand-alone instrument or be simply integrated into a fully automated laboratory environment. The CS700 decaps Screw Caps from a full 96-tube storage rack in less than 30 seconds! Through the graphical touch screen interface the operator is able to select any rack to cap, decap or recap without using different adapters for different tube sizes. The Screw Cap Recapper uses a precisely determined torque value for optimal sealing quality thereby minimizing sample evaporation and maximizing the integrity of your valuable samples.
Micronic offers the Screw Cap Recapper CS700 for use with other brands of tubes and caps (Thermo, FluidX and LVL). This means that if you use sample storage tubes or caps from another brand, it is still possible to benefit from the wide range of qualities our Screw Cap Recapper CS700 offers.
Micronic received a Good Industrial Design Award (GIO award) for the innovative design of the recapper. The award indicates that the recapper is original, functional, ergonomic, designed with respect for the environment and adds value to end-users.
