Brooks Life Science Systems Optimizes Workflow and Improves Sample Throughput with New FluidX™ IntelliXcap™ Decapper


New 96-format whole rack capper/decapper features industry’s first interchangeable cartridge system for use with a wide range of tubes.

With a compact yet modular design, the versatile IntelliXcap is the industry’s only 96-format full rack system to feature an interchangeable cartridge and an advanced storage media detection sensor for managing multiple tube types, allowing users to decap a complete rack of tubes in as little as 20 seconds.

“Our advanced automation technology enables us to deliver increased throughput, ease of use and high system reliability in our delivery of IntelliXcap, which has created a new benchmark for the next generation of cappers/decappers,” said Robin Grimwood, Vice President and General Manager, Brooks Life Science Systems Automation Solutions. “The FluidX brand continues to build on its market leading presence with IntelliXcap as the fastest, most flexible and reliable multi-tube capper/decapper system in the market.”

IntelliXcap features user-friendly functionality including quick installation, integrated touch panel controls, and a stage extension for fully automated workflow integration, making the system ideal for any laboratory managing compound or biological samples.

FluidX Are Sample Storage and Tracking Specialists

The team at FluidX probably know more about 2D barcoded storage tubes and readers than any other group in the world.

We were part of the team that developed the very first 2D datamatrix barcoded tubes back in 1999 and also introduced the first scanner capable of identifying a whole rack of 96 tubes.

With over fifteen years of continuous development, it's no wonder FluidX 2D barcode readers perform so well.

On October 1, 2014, FluidX, in combination with our development partners Cedrex A/S and BioFex Ltd, was acquired by Brooks Automation, Inc. to help form a new Consumables and Instruments group within Brooks Life Science Systems, a Global leader in automated cold-chain management for drug discovery and biostorage applications.
