Laboratory Automation Solutions
Improve safety and efficiency in various types of clinical laboratories with Thermo Scientific™ TCAutomation™ Laboratory Automation Solutions. This expandable and scalable, fully-featured laboratory automation solution allows labor-intensive tasks in pre- and post-analytical phases of sample management to be automated in different combinations. Depending on the floor plan and efficiency requirements, the TCAutomation systems can be expanded step-by-step.
TCAutomation™ systems throughput can range from 250 up to 1000 tubes per hour. Because solutions are modular, they are easy to expand. Automating can be started from a certain function and built up towards total laboratory automation. Samples are transported in the system within dual-lane conveyors in a multitube carrier which accommodates several tube sizes. The carrier includes an embedded microchip, based on RFID technology, making sample identification fast and reliable, and enabling excellent real-time sample tracking possibilities.
Entry Modules for high-volume automatic sample loading in user-specified racks
Centrifuge Module for automatic and continuous centrifugation of samples
Decapper Flex Module for automatic cap removal from different types and sizes of primary tubes
Aliquoter/Labeler Module for automatic sample aliquoting to secondary tubes with user-defined rules. Disposable tips are used. Secondary tubes are labelled automatically with the primary tube ID according to user-definable fields.
Recapper Module for automatic capping of different types and sizes of primary tubes
