Automation Compatible Tube Rack Delivers Significant Productivity Gains

Oct 30 2007

The RoboRack-96 from Micronic BV is a innovative chemically resistant polypropylene tube rack which incorporates a wealth of novel productivity enhancing features for automated applications including sample storage, liquid level sensing and laboratory logistics.

Accommodating 96 individual 1.4 ml tubes in the industry standard 96-well configuration the RoboRack-96 exactly conforms to the globally recognised ANSI/SBS-1 (2004) Footprint Dimensions. This ensures turnkey integration with all commercial automated sample handling and storage systems enabling significant gains in productivity to be routinely achieved.

The RoboRack-96 is at the leading edge of automation-compatible rack technology. Benefiting from a unique contoured well top (Sure-Shot) design, the RoboRack-96 provides positive tube lead-in (A1-H12) increasing throughput and decrease downtime. Unlike traditional rack designs any tubes not perfectly delivered to the desired vertical rack location will no longer cause jamming and instead will be positively guided into the correct well location. An additional benefit of the contoured well shape is that it also offers improved access for robotic grippers to retrieve tubes. To speed the process and to ensure consistency of heating to access deep frozen samples, or cooling of samples for storage, Micronic has incorporated a novel open rack air flow architecture system on the RoboRack-96 that considerably reduces traditional freeze-thaw cycle times. To ensure sample integrity during transport or storage each RoboRack-96 is supplied with an easy-to-operate lockable lid. The CovLoc lid has been thoroughly tested to operate even at low temperatures.
