Consumption approx. 66.0 l (17.4 gals) per min with recap unit
|Sample Identification||Positive sample identification via bar code; able to handle most of the standard bar code formats such as Interleaved 2 of 5, Code 39, Codabar (NW 7), Code 128, others2|
Network connection via TCP/IP or serial connection via RS 232
1. Final throughput is contingent on various parameters, such as aliquot volume or number of aliquots per primary tube
2. Other bar code types can be checked on request
