Vacuum Tube Decapper

The Globe Scientific GTD-1 decapper is a semi-automated system for safely and efficiently removing caps from primary blood and urine tubes. With three available carousels, the GTD-1 covers most common volume tubes. By using a simple yet effective design, the unit helps limit aerosol exposure commonly associated with the opening of blood tubes, finger injury due to broken glass and repetitive strain injury. Technicians can expect a throughput of approximately 60 tubes per minute and free their time to tackle more productive activities.
