The Automation Partnership (TAP) has premiered Capit-All™, its new system for automatically removing and replacing screw-caps from microtubes, on Stand 31 at the European Laboratory Robotics Group (ELRIG) and Society of Biomolecular Screening (SBS) Meeting in the East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham, UK.

According to TAP, its Capit-All system can simultaneously unscrew and recap 96 tubes held in standard 96-way tube racks. Each cap is replaced concurrently and individually tightened to a seal, avoiding the risk of putting the wrong lid back on a tube and eliminating a source of cross-contamination.

Capit-All can process common tube types including Nunc’s CryoBank and Bank-It cryotubes, Micronic’s Tracker and TraXis tubes and Matrix’s TrackMate range. Since the system uses an SBS standard rack format, the rack can be transferred to most commercial liquid handlers, making it easy to add Capit-All into an automation workflow. With a small footprint, Capit-All can fit on any bench or in laboratory or microbiological safety cabinets and is light enough to be portable, making it ideal for a variety of biostorage situations.
