Wide Labware Compatibility

  • Enables you to pick individual or groups of tubes directly from 96-well racks with ease
  • The Mohawk can lift one, two or up to sixteen individual tubes at a time, making it easy to remove them from the rack and place in a subsidiary rack or other tube device
  • Works with frozen and thawed tubes
  • The picklist can even include tubes that are contained in multiple racks
  • The integrated 1D barcode reader identifies individual racks and the system software then uses this ID to look up the pre-defined picklist; this reduces the risks of the wrong tubes being selected during picking
  • It can work in combination with a Ziath Mirage, Express or Cube reader to automatically create picklists and then verify the contents of the subsidiary (or Daughter) racks and reupload their new positions to FreezerPro or to your LIMS via an Excel file

FreezerPro & Other LIMS Compatibility

  • Picklists can be created manually or imported from the FreezerPro inventory management system or from your LIMS or another sample tracking program that can export Excel format files
