Hamilton DeCapper

For labs that require frequent removal and replacement of caps, we offer the DeCapper. The DeCapper optimizes workflow in a laboratory by decapping and re-capping 12 rows of vials simultaneously in less than 60 seconds. 

The DeCapper supports 0.5ml to 1.4ml microtubes from Matrix, Micronic, and Nunc. The DeCapper can be controlled either by the MICROLAB® STAR Line Venus one software or a standalone controller. Caps can be placed on a separate cap holder for processing multiple plates. 

In addition, this valuable system can be operated as an integrated and stand-alone unit simultaneously.
