Fully Automated Accessioning and Benchtop Sample Tube De-Capping/Re-Capping with Sample to Microplate Transfer

STP-3000 Automated Sample Transfer Processing System

Safely remove samples from a variety of tube types, including screw-capped, swab style, microtubes, and others. Simplify sample accessioning liquid transfer with an automated, benchtop system that accurately transfers 96 liquid samples from 96 sealed tubes to a 96-well microplate in just 40 minutes.

From Sample to Report in One System

The benchtop STP-3000 integrates a tube handling robotic arm, de-capping and re-capping module, tube barcode reading, liquid handling pipetting channel and negative pressure protection to provide fast and convenient sample transfer. Safely remove caps, transfer liquids to a microplate and re-cap the sample tube with the same cap, reducing waste and eliminating the risks from operators handling biological collection tubes.
