AFYS3G’s new automatic capper for single screw cap tubes designed for efficiency

AFYS3G has launched a new capping solution for the automatic closing of single sample tubes: the AFYS3G Capper for Screw Cap Tubes Sigma STR. The Sigma STR is designed to improve efficiency and can be used as stand-alone device. The capper for single screw cap tubes is a reliable and durable instrument for any lab managing compound libraries or biological sample stores that wants to increase sample throughput and reduce manual errors.

The single tube capper, Sigma STR, is compatible with labware from a variety of brands like Sarstedt, Micronic, Azenta and Greiner Bio-one and can cap a single tube in 7 seconds. Through the graphical touch screen interface, the operator can select different options that make capping easier, like seeing the number of capped tubes and manually change the parameters. The capper uses a precisely determined torque value for optimal sealing quality thereby minimizing evaporation and maximizing the integrity of valuable samples. Because of the large cap holder at the top of the Sigma STR, the machine can hold up to 500+ caps. This makes continual capping easy.
