Brooks Life Science Systems has launched a 96-format whole rack capper/decapper.

The FluidX IntelliXcap features an interchangeable cartridge and a storage media detection sensor for managing multiple tube types allowing users to decap a rack of tubes in 20 seconds.

The interchangeable cartridge system allows tube types to be switched in two minutes.

It has integrated touch panel controls and a stage extension for automated workflow integration. The system is for medium to high-throughput labs managing compound or biological samples.

The IntelliXcap capper/decapper is available through Brooks and authorized dealers from this month.

Brooks offers products and services for sample management in temperatures of -20°C to -150°C, including outsourced services across the life cycle of biological samples.

The firm is headquartered in Chelmsford, Massachusetts with direct operations in North America, Europe and Asia.

"Our advanced automation technology enables us to deliver increased throughput, ease of use and high system reliability in our delivery of IntelliXcap, which has created a new benchmark for the next generation of cappers/decappers," said Robin Grimwood, VP and general manager at Brooks Life Science Systems Automation Solutions. 

"The industry innovation from FluidX in the development of 2D tubes and automated sample storage instruments have long enabled optimized workflows and reliable handling processes that helps ensure the highest sample integrity.”

It was on display during the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) conference in Washington DC, February 4-8.
