Ziath will showcase its Mohawk Semi-Automated Tube picker on booth #452 at SLAS 2019 in Washington DC.
The system is designed to set a new standard for frozen or thawed sample tube picking from 96-position racks. The Mohawk works out of the box, and needs no set up or calibration. Instrument control is via user friendly software which provides an intuitive interface for easy operation.
Tubes can be picked from a single rack, or a picklist can be set up to select tubes across multiple racks. Pick list operations can be started from reading the 1D code on a rack placed onto the Mohawk, but manual selection is also possible.
Other key features include the ability to generate picklists externally in other software applications, or to create a template using the Mohawk’s own software. For additional 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. A 1D-scanner for reading the rack barcode is included as standard.
