Cap detection and test tube identification in the decapper and sample carousel

For decapping, two steps are essential to avoid system failures or errors in the process: Reliable cap detection and correct identification of the test tubes. This enables their correct assignment in subsequent process steps. The performance and size of the G6 photoelectric proximity sensor and the CLV60x fixed mount barcode scanner are perfect for the requirements of this application.
