The BioMicroLab XL100 simplifies complex tube and vial handling tasks including volume detection of low sample volumes, liquid transfer, labeling, capping, de-capping, and re-arraying. Compatible with tubes and vials up to 125 mm in height and designed with an interchangeable pick-head, laboratories benefit from the flexibility of using the same instrument for different tubes and vials.
The XL100 brings together scanning, decoding, re-array, labelling, weighing, capping/decapping, and liquid transfer capabilities within a single user-friendly instrument. Its modular design offers researchers and operators the flexibility to use it for individual tasks, or to accomplish multiple tasks as part of a single workflow.
The generous capacity enables researchers to pre-load 20 racks, reservoir plates or pipette tip boxes, removing tasks from the critical path and increasing research productivity. For a 30 rack capacity deck, see the XL200.
The instrument’s pick fingers adjust to a wide variety of tubes and vials, and the XL100 is compatible with ANSI/SLAS format tube racks, including honeycomb format racks and PCR plates.
The XL100 seamlessly integrates 2D and 1D barcode decoding with other tube handling operations for easier sample identification and tracking.
Our LabelPro module applies high-resolution labels printed with 1D & 2D barcodes, symbols and human readable text to tubes and vials - reducing the burden of manual labeling tasks and eliminating bottlenecks.
To verify volume upon receipt of samples, or before/after liquid transfer operations, the XL100 integrates precision balances to automate the collection of sample weight data.
The XL100 has a proven track record of reliability, ensuring maximum uptime for day-to-day automated sample management operations and safeguarding research productivity.
XL Series Tube and Vial Handlers streamline liquid transfer, volume detection, sample identification/verification, labeling, capping/de-capping tasks to eliminate bottlenecks and transform tube handling workflows.
User-friendly Windows based software is included with all XL Series instruments to manage sample processing modes and robotic operations. BioMicroLab offers software developer toolkits for your instrument and workflow integration projects.
Included with all XL Series instruments, the XL Work List Manager Software offers user-friendly management of vial pick and place operations. It provides multiple tube processing modes for common tube handling applications to meet varied workflow needs and allows researchers flexible control to increase your throughput. Output files can be easily configured to meet LIMS system requirements. Easily managed by multiple users, our full featured tube processing software provides walk away operation to meet throughput requirements even for demanding environments with advanced system error handling options. Software features include:
Cost effective solutions to temperature management are available depending on the application. Options include models built for cool room environments, or a system integrated directly on the XL Series instrument platform, such as Solid State Cooling system or Mécour Thermal block, to maintain steady sample temperatures.
The XL100 is compatible with commonly used microtubes, cryovials and vials up to 125 mm in height!
Please inquire if you do not see your labware listed, as it still may be compatible!
When operator safety is a concern, the XL100 can be enclosed so that the instrument automatically shuts off when the door is opened. Clear, acrylic walls allow maximum light and visibility into the instrument to support comfortable user conditions. Enclosures are now available with HEPA filtration.
The LabelPro module prints and applies high-resolution 1D & 2D barcodes as well as human readable text and symbols. User-friendly software allows operators to generate unique or identical labels using a variety of label materials and sizes.Download XL100 LabelPro Flyer
The XL100 seamlessly integrates 2D data matrix barcode decoding with other tube handling operations, decoding up to 500 tubes per hour. BioMicroLab’s software captures and reports each tube’s 2D barcode, tube location, weight, volume and more to LIMS systems.
The instrument integrates either a precision 4-place or 5-place automated balance to automate the collection of sample weight data and easily verify volume upon receipt of samples, or before/after liquid transfer operations.
We offer automated liquid handling with the Tecan ADP pipetting module, configured on your XL Series Tube Handler via a separate Z-axis to allow seamless integration with other tube handling tasks. The Cavro ADP single channel pipette uses air displacement technology or conductive tips to aspirate or dispense fluids to and from any tube, vial or rack position!
