Fully automated Sample Tube Sorter

Automatically sort and manage your valuable samples from multiple racks at once

Selecting and sorting sample storage tubes by hand is a monotonous task that’s prone to human error. With the HT500 Tube Handler from Micronic, researchers can pick and place up to 400 96-well format tubes per hour.

To use the HT500, follow these three steps:

  1. Create a “pick list” generated from a LIMS system; enter into the HT500 via a USB stick
  2. Use the included 1D code reader to scan the rack positions on the platform, source and target racks
  3. Let the machine do the rest

With the ability to hold 20 racks and pick/place up to 400 tubes per hour, the HT500 can help speed up and simplify workflows in the lab. Its innovative user interface makes it easy to select, arrange, or rearrange samples, making it an ideal automation tool for every laboratory and biobank.
