Newswise — Aim Lab’s PathFinder 350A Archiver is a compact bench top workstation for automating the capping (foil sealing), sorting and archiving of sample tubes directly from analyzer racks into low cost storage racks. When sampling is complete, analyzer racks are loaded onto the PathFinder 350A for processing. Those sample tubes where all requested tests have been completed are foil sealed and sorted into uniquely identified storage racks. Tubes are capped with a laminated foil which seals the tube preventing evaporation and leakage during transport or freezer storage.

The PathFinder 350A is best suited to archiving workloads of 500 – 3,000 tubes per day and offers the following additional benefits:

  • Significantly reduces tube handling and eliminates manual processing errors

  • Easy sample tracking

  • Reduces repetitive strain injuries

  • Low cap costs compared to alternatives

  • Sorts out those tubes with any outstanding tests including send outs

Come and see a demonstration of the PathFinder 350A on Booth 4648 at the 2018 AACC Clinical Lab Expo in Chicago.
