Efficient labeling solutions to streamline prep work

Applying labels automatically can look very different from lab to lab. Some applicators still require an operator to place the tube, while others are bulk-fed may not require any operator involvement for hours at a time. Some may be better suited for robotic handling and conveyor systems, while some can fit comfortably on a benchtop. Determining how you can achieve the most value with automation requires auditing your current needs and future goals with an automation specialist.

cab Axon 1 key features

The Axon 1 is economical, accurate, and easy to use. It can function as a simple, standalone tabletop unit, or it can be used to support a larger automated workflow. In contrast with the Axon 2, the Axon 1 applies labels to tubes oriented vertically. This simple variance can make a world of difference in your overall labeling strategy so it’s important that you discuss your needs with your labeling partner to determine the best solution for you.

  • Vertical orientation can handle both filled and capped tubes, including hinge caps
  • Integrate with additional automation including robotic handling an scan verification
  • Compact sizing makes the Axon 1 an ideal choice for tight spaces
  • Fast and easy change-overs for different tube and vial sizes
  • The Axon’s print and apply automation is best for moderate throughput volumes
  • Versatile design supports standalone operation as well as integration

Laboratory Resource Management

Tracking high-value samples across multiple systems and locations can be a challenge in any laboratory. Without proper infrastructures in place this can lead to higher costs and lower visibility. Computype’s Digital Traceability Platform helps track critical assets digitally and physically – monitoring storage, usage, and more.
