MCD-13: Laboratory Decapping / Capping Machine

Microtube Decapper & Capper

The Microcapper MCD-13 helps attaching screw caps on microtubes. It improves occupational health & safety and process integrity.

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.

Specifications.

• Micro-tube cap size of 13×6 mm (others on request).
• Size: 210mm (L) x 175mm (W) x 400mm (H).
• Power supply: User selectable 115V or 230V.
• Power rating: 450W max.
• Weight: 5 kgs

Performance.

• Easy operation – User places cap on tube and load into tube holder for capping.
• The noise level is less than 70 db at 1 meter.
• Device requires little to no maintenance.

 

Consistency
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
Our 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.
