For an innovative provider of a Total Laboratory Automation (TLA) system m-u-t has developed a bulk input module. With it, m-u-t has covered the full range of the solutions:
- Mechanical design
- Development of control system (electronics and Software)
- Product documentation for the customer’s regulatory requirements (e.g. CE certification)
- Serial production of the module at the Wedel site
The module is consists of a bulk-input-funnel. The tubes are loaded into the System. The barcode is then read and the cap colour and the tube geometry are detected. Finally, the tubes are placed with aligned barcodes in a puck on the track system. At the same time, the system transfers the information from the tube to the System middleware.
