New generation Univo Electric Decapper DC480 from Micronic.

Targeting the ever-growing requirement for higher sample throughput the new generation Univo Electric Decapper DC480 from Micronic enables labs tasked with opening multiple sample storage tubes to achieve significant productivity gains.

The Univo Electric Decapper DC480 is the latest addition to Micronic’s redesigned 'blue-white' line of productive sample handling equipment, that is not only compatible with all Micronic tubes (up to 1.40ml) but also with tubes and caps of other brands.

Through an improved user interface the operator is able to select any rack to decap, without using different adapters for different tube sizes / brands.

Easy to install and operate the compact Univo Electric Decapper DC480 removes and disposes of the push caps from a full 96-tube storage rack in 8 seconds.

Operation is safe and user friendly - simply place a rack of capped tubes onto the access tray, push the start button and the Univo Electric Decapper DC480 will gently remove all the caps in one action.

The integrated cap disposal device ensures that caps cannot be reused.

Designed and built to the highest quality standards the Univo Electric Decapper DC480 sets a new benchmark for reliability and operational uptime.

Designed to improve users productivity the Micronic Univo Electric Decapper DC480 can be used as a stand-alone instrument or be simply integrated into a fully automated laboratory environment.

Dedicated to the design and production of innovative sample storage tubes, accessories and instruments over the last 25 years, Micronic is uniquely able to offer laboratories the expert advice to help them safeguard one of its most valuable assets - its samples.
