Scinomix RapidCAP2 Automated Capper & Decapper

Achieve convenient, high-throughput capping and decapping in your production lab environment without the added expense of premium-priced pre-racked tubes required for expensive automation applications. Our small benchtop RapidCAP2 is remarkably simple to operate and designed to cap and decap inexpensively priced cryovials between 0.5ml and 2.0ml in just 4.75 seconds per tube — making it both budget-friendly and impressively fast compared to other equipment.

Manually capping and decapping tubes is tedious and time-consuming work. The RapidCAP2 automates this task and makes it more convenient for people working in the lab.

As lab managers have so much to get done in the lab, Scinomix engineers developed features within the RapidCAP2 to prevent endless busywork attending to the device. That’s why we created the cap hopper to hold up to 1,000 caps, or two bags, to minimise the interruption of having to keep dumping caps into the hopper. Just fill it and walk away.

Lab managers today are exposed to increased risk and liability from incorrect vial handling. To reduce the risk of human error for color-coded samples, RapidCAP2 offers a helpful color sensor and detection system that prevents the wrong cap colour (which may represent a specific sample) from being capped accidentally on a vial. This also saves valuable time by eliminating the need to go back and fix avoidable errors.

Nobody has time to learn new, complicated systems. The RapidCAP2 software is simple, user-friendly, and does not require a dedicated computer with specialty software. We believe lab equipment should fit into existing lab infrastructure with little or minimal effort. That’s why RapidCAP2 comes ready to go and requires little configuration. What’s more, its helpful touch screen software makes operation fast, convenient, and reliable, so end users can spend their time on more important tasks and not with technical staff.

The system is factory configured to the user’s specific needs, which allows for minimal setup time at the user’s facility. Plus, RapidCAP2 is designed using modular components to make servicing quicker and easier which minimizes production downtime.
