Ziath releases semi-automated tube picker

The Mohawk semi-automated tube picker has been designed to work out of the box, and needs no set up or calibration.

Ziath has released a compact new system that sets the standard for frozen or thawed sample tube picking from 96-position racks. The Mohawk semi-automated tube picker has been designed to work out of the box, and needs no setup or calibration.

Instrument control for the Mohawk is through the new 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. Picklist operations are normally started from reading the 1D code on a rack placed onto the Mohawk, but manual selection is also possible.

The use of such technology avoids slow robotics which takes minutes to process racks; instead, a rack can be scanned and tubes selected then picked in seconds.

Mohawk integrates with Ziath scanners to produce and verify a report of the picked rack at the end of the process.
