Although the automation-friendly data matrix code on the bottom of storage tubes has now been standard for many years – and has considerably simplified the handling of samples, many users still want to mark tubes with their own specific information. But at the same time, they want to get away from time-consuming and non-secure methods of labeling and lettering. To meet precisely this need, LVL has developed a fully automatic tube laser marker.
The TLM 864 can automatically laser-code SAFE® tubes in SBS 96, SBS 48 and SBS 24 formats from two sides and link the information in a database to the 2D code that was previously lasered-on during production. Up to 500 tubes per hour can be coded from nine SBS/ANSI positions. The information to be applied is created and transmitted from an external PC, and the device is configured via an integrated touch screen.
