The new range of Micronic Screw Cap Recappers have been launched by Micronic to increase the efficiency of the sample storage process by accelerating the capping and decapping of screw cap tubes.
Micronic received a good industrial design award (GIO award) for the innovative design of the recappers. The award indicates that the recappers are original, functional, ergonomic, designed with respect for the environment and add value to end-users.
Each recapper in the range is compatible with either 96-well, 48-well or 24-well format sample storage tubes. Designed in conjunction with leading laboratories, the recappers improve the efficiency of (de)capping tubes.
The handheld device enables users to cap a row of tubes in four seconds and a whole rack of tubes in less than a minute. In addition, the cost-efficient devices ensure optimal sealing performance by sealing tubes securely and uniformly.
As a result of the design, the Micronic Screw Cap Recappers earned a GIO award during Dutch Design Week 2017.
A GIO award is a prestige prize in the Netherlands for devices of extraordinary design.
