BioMicroLab XL9 and XL20 for Use in Flexible Tube and Vial Handling

The range of adaptable, trustworthy, and user-friendly sample management automation instruments from BioMicroLab offers necessary tools to laboratories by automating a single task for the first time or fulfilling completely automated sample management workflows.

Flexible tube and vial handling systems

The BioMicroLab XL Series of reliable and inexpensive benchtop robotic pick and place systems automate their vital sample management tasks like reformatting, organizing, and examining samples.

The company provides four models differing by configurable modules and rack capacity, and each instrument could be utilized for a single operation in users’ workflow or to accomplish multiple tasks like weighing, scanning, and labeling.

All models are completely electric (no compressed air required) and include Windows-based easy-to-use, integration-ready software and are completely consistent with LIMS systems.

XL9

The BioMicroLab XL9 tube handler is available for 96-format microtubes, and can be configured with sample tracking, labeling, and volume detection capabilities. Having a 9-rack capacity, this is perfect for laboratories that are just starting out with automation or with restricted benchtop space.

XL100

The BioMicroLab XL100 executes complicated tube and vial handling tasks, such as liquid transfer, volume detection of low sample volumes, capping, labeling, de-capping, and re-arraying. Having been consistent with tubes and vials ranging up to a height of 125 mm and developed with an interchangeable pick-head, laboratories could use the same instrument for various vials and tubes.

XL200

The BioMicroLab XL200 is similar in capabilities and function to the XL100, but has a bigger deck capacity of 30 racks and executes complicated tube and vial handling tasks, such as volume detection of liquid transfer, very low sample volumes, capping, labeling, de-capping, and re-array.

The XL200 is consistent with the same range of tubes and vials (ranging up to a height of 125 mm) and is perfect for laboratories processing high-volume runs or needing deck spaces for wash areas, reagents, or tip boxes.

Standalone Volume Detection for Quality Control

The BioMicroLab VolumeCheck instruments use patented non-contact ultrasonic technology to precisely detect the volume of every well or tube and output the volumes of a 384-well plate to an easy-to-use and intuitive display in just 30 seconds.

The BioMicroLab VolumeCheck is utilized with liquid handlers to guarantee the precision of assay plate preparation in sample library inventory management workflows and in any workflow requiring volume verification before or after other processing tasks.

The BioMicroLab VolumeCheck has outstanding repeatability, compatibility with an extensive range of labware, and user-focused software offering laboratories a straightforward solution for automated volume verification.

VC100

The BioMicroLab VolumeCheck 100 aids laboratories in getting away from visual or manual inspection of well plates and tube racks by offering an automated alternative.

With an inexpensive price point, the BioMicroLab VolumeCheck 100 is perfect for laboratories combining the detection of low or high volumes in uncapped 96, 48, and 24-format well plates and tube racks into their workflow.

VC384

The BioMicroLab VolumeCheck 384 is the ideal solution for most laboratories as they have the quickest scan speed, highest precision, and compatibility with the extensive range of labware. It is consistent with 384 well plates and uncapped tubes in 96-, 48-, and 24-format racks (no adapters or consumables are required) and returns the volumes of a 384 well plate in as little as 30 seconds in quick scan mode.

Automated Tube and Vial Labelling

LabelPro

The BioMicroLab LabelPro helps automate the time-intensive process of printing and employing labels by hand. It comes as an independent printer or combined with a BioMicroLab XL Tube Handler for automated labeling and other tube handling tasks. The BioMicroLab LabelPro applies labels to cryovials, microtubes, glass vials, and Falcon conical centrifuge tubes.

By making use of the included software, operators can design even or special labels with text, barcodes, or symbols by making use of any font, and repeat labeling projects easily.

Automated Benchtop Capping and Decapping

AutoCap

User-friendly, right out of the box, the BioMicroLab AutoCap makes it simple for operators to rapidly add or eliminate screw caps for 96-format internal or external thread tubes. For laboratories with several types of tubes, the interchangeable capping tools enable operators to alter the instrument to cap different labware rapidly.

Having been regulated by an onboard easy-to-use 7″ color touchscreen interface or a network connection, repetitive strain injuries typical of capping tasks are avoided completely.

Barcode Scanning for Sample Tracking

The BioMicroLab SampleScan complete rack and single tube barcode scanners are user-friendly, trustworthy, and combine well with other systems. They could be utilized to decode 2D barcodes on the base of cryovials, cryotubes, glass vials, and others in an extensive range of ANSI or SLAS standard labware.

BioMicroLab SampleScan systems are found in drug discovery labs and biorepositories worldwide and have become popular for thousands of users.

Scan

The BioMicroLab Scan integrates the latest camera and software technology with a small and modern design. Having been developed for high-speed barcode reading for both SBS and standard cyrobox format 2D barcoded tubes, this strong new reader decodes most rack types in under one second.

BioMicroLab XL Ionizer

Users can use the XL Ionizer in ultra-dry environments to enhance the precision of analytic balances. Plastic test tubes that are moved in and out of plastic racks have the potential to house an electrostatic charge.

The charge might result in slight changes in the test tube sample weight when the tube has been positioned in an analytical balance, particularly at low volumes. The XL Ionizer dispels the electrostatic charge on the balance, the instrument deck, tube racks, and tube itself.
