XQ MCD-13 Capping and De-capping Machine for Microtubes
XQ Instruments MCD-13 Capping and De-capping Machine for Microtubes
The XQ Instruments MCD-13 Microcapper helps attaching screw caps on microtubes. It improves occupational health & safety and process integrity. Has a capping/de-capping rate of 10-15 caps/minute.
Manual screw capping introduces variation in the torque applied to tighten the caps. Consistent torque provided by our Microcappers prevents leakage of tubes, especially during transportation.
Health & Safety
XQ screw capping machines alleviate operator fatigue and reduce possibility of occupational health issues such as carpal tunnel syndrome which frequently occur in manual lab capping.
Consistent tightening of the caps is ensured to prevent leakage during transportation. The MCD-13 reduces operator’s hand fatigue. It is known that hazards such as carpal tunnel syndrome can result from the repetitive strain of manually tightening screw caps, making mechanical capping important.
Designed for capping of screw caps on 13mm tubes typically used in laboratories for the preparation and processing of samples and reagents, the MCD-13 works for various cap, vial and tube sizes. The bench top device is compact, a footprint of less than half an A4 paper, and portable.
The product is user friendly and can be operated with minimum training. Caps are manually placed on each tube, before loading onto holder and pushing in for capping. A de-capping function is also provided.
