Accelerating tube picking & selection

The Mohawk tube selector and picker from Ziath employs a linear rack reader and ninety-six pins that allow a frozen or thawed sample tube to be raised when a rack is scanned according to a picklist. This innovative technology avoids the need for slow, expensive robotics which can take minutes to process racks. With Mohawk, a rack is scanned, tubes are selected and picked in seconds.

Mohawk needs no set up or calibration. Control is achieved via through software which provides an intuitive interface for fast and effortless operation. Tubes are picked from a single rack, or a picklist can be set up to select tubes across multiple racks. Pick list operations are normally started from reading the 1D code on a rack placed onto the Mohawk, but manual selection is also possible.

For extra sample tracking and security, the Mohawk can be connected directly to a 2D-barcode scanner for tube confirmation. In this mode it can also generate picklists directly from the tube barcodes. For further traceability, a 1D-scanner for reading the rack barcode is included.
