Micronic, Aston, Pa, has launched the Micronic HT700 automated tube handler. The HT700 allows users to reconfigure or single-out sample tubes in 96-well format Micronic racks (ANSI/SLAS standard) for downstream processes at room temperature.

The handler’s user-friendly software interface enables users to set quarantine conditions and run parameters that meet end-users’ specific requirements. The handler can also be configured to use worklist files from a USB thumb drive.

An integrated 1-D barcode and 2-D code reader double checks whether the sample tubes are selected correctly during the arraying process, and provides traceability for information to be transferred to database and laboratory information systems.

The Micronic HT700 tube handler can handle capped and uncapped Micronic tubes from 0.30 mL to 1.40 mL at speeds of 800 tubes per hour, and offers a capacity of 24 racks plus one to three target racks. The unique closed system guarantees the safety of the user.
