A Flexible Tube Filling System - Ideal for VTM Dispensing
12 Oct 2020
Gilson has developed a compact, low-cost tube filling system that can fill bottles, tubes, vials, or microplates and can help improve productivity.
Viral transport media (VTM) is a critical component of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) test kits as it is used for the collection, transport, and storage of clinical specimens. As companies and laboratories accelerate the manufacturing of their test kits to meet the continued high testing demand, the ability to fill transport tubes with VTM quickly is an important step in the process.
Features of the Gilson system include:
Adjustable dispense head spacing.
Flexible tube/vial/plate holders.
Peristaltic pumping technology for dispensing.
Small footprint for use in biosafety cabinets.
Quick start-up and installation.
Easy-to-sterile flow path for zero contamination.
The company can also work with labs to offer a fully customisable tube-filling system to help increase productivity and provide rapid installation. Find more details here.
