In order to evaluate test results reliably and quickly, test tubes must be labeled uniquely.
In practice, 2D codes or linear barcodes are printed on self-adhesive labels and the labels are applied on the tubes.
Print resolutions of 300 or 600 dpi, a sharp-edge print image and high contrast enable even tiny 2D codes to be verified. Thermal direct and thermal transfer printing are possible.
The AXON 2 printing solution by Cab is a perfect fit for labeling tubes individually as a manual workstation or integrated in sample processing systems
Tubes of diameters 10 to 17 mm can be processed, capped or uncapped. Printing and labeling take less than two seconds. After the tubes have been labeled, they can be removed one by one or be ejected to a tray. Self-explanatory symbols enable intuitive operation. The label roll and the ribbon are easy to remove.
If it comes to cleaning or in cases of wear, print rollers and transport rollers can be removed easily by the operator with the help of a tool attached. AXON 2 may be integrated in a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). Data transfer from a PC is possible via interfaces such as RS232, USB, Ethernet, or via WLAN.
In stand-alone operation, when no PC is connected, variable data are set with a keyboard or a scanner. Power may be supplied by 110 to 240 VAC voltage or 36 to 60 VDC voltage, 24 VDC on request.
Labeling tubes reliably in real time
The last few months have been incredibly exciting for our organization. In early April, we changed ownership to Sole Source Capital, an experienced private equity company focused on the industrial services market and committed to our growth. With Sole Source’s support, we have added tremendous capabilities, resources, and industry expertise to the Peak portfolio through the acquisition of three companies in the last 60 days.
Along with these exciting developments comes a renewed sense of commitment and purpose. To celebrate this exciting new chapter, we wanted to use this opportunity to reflect on our past, while looking forward to the future. We are extremely pleased to announce that we have changed our company name to Peak Technologies, Inc.
For many of our long-time customers, this is a return to the company name that had been in place since our founding in 1981. When we merged with Ryzex in 2011, we combined our names to symbolize the union of two industry leaders. But over the last few years, we have become ONE Peak, added additional capabilities, battled through a pandemic together, and feel that the time is now to re-brand the company as we look forward to the future.
