Dayton, OH (August 2018) —AutoSorter™ 2000BB is Yaskawa Motoman’s high-speed bulk sorter for high-volume commercial laboratories, providing maximum specimen throughput at up to 2,000 tubes/hr. It minimizes manual handling of specimens through bulk loading/unloading, and it reduces sequential sorting by fine sorting in one step.
AutoSorter 2000BB addresses other common requirements for high-volume commercial labs: bulk loading; wide range of container types and sizes; data connectivity and sorting to 24 bins with options for loading to racks or track.
A bulk sorter configuration that maintains frozen specimens in a -20°C environment during the sorting process is also available. This enables automated sorting of most frozen specimens which previously required labor-intensive and error-prone manual handling.
AutoSorter 2000BB utilizes the AutoSorter 1200 platform – a proven, robust sorter engine that is designed and built to industrial standards to serve for an extended lifecycle in high-demand laboratory environments.
AutoSorter 1200 is a high-speed sorting instrument for pre- and post-analytic specimen processing in high-throughput commercial/reference laboratories. It may be used as a stand-alone workcell for “task-targeted” specimen processing (AutoSorter 1200S), or it may be connected to a track system (AutoSorter 1200T) as part of an integrated pre-/post-analytic specimen processing system.
Yaskawa Motoman provides automation solutions for labor-intensive, high throughput areas of the clinical diagnostic laboratory. Capabilities include sorting; aliquoting; decapping/recapping; thawing/mixing; centrifugation; and archive storage and retrieval – with a range of standard platforms. AutoSorter solutions can be customized to meet every laboratory's unique specimen processing needs.
