Flexible automated lab test tube and bottle filler
Used by FDA grants for Coronavirus - COVID-19 Diagnostic Tests and Research
The TF-3000 Biotool Swiss automated tube and bottle filler, automates the repetitive labor intensive process of filling of tubes & bottles. Set up is easy, just place the rack* (you can practically use most commercial rack in the market - * as long as it fits on the filling platform and the tubes are held tightly in place and kept in an upright straight position), train the intelligent yet simple to use software about the position of your racks, size of tubes and requested filling volume and let the TF-3000 do the rest.
The TF-3000 comes as a system with an integrated built-in peristaltic pump that is controlled by the software.
The LED guided arm, will start moving in precision from tube to tube filling up the desired volume freeing the lab technician from this tedious time consuming task.

Our XY tube filler solution has helped over 30 Covid-19 laboratories across the United States and Canada in the process of filling of hundreds of thousands of test tubes used for pre and post swab tests. One of our customers the Broad Institute, converted part of their CLIA-certified lab into a high-throughput COVID-19 testing facility to serve the public health needs of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and surrounding areas. Broad's team has steadily increased the pace and scale of diagnostic testing. The testing facility processes samples obtained from nasal swabs, using an RT-PCR assay, and has an average turnaround time of less than 24 hours from the time tests arrive at their facility helping process 100,000 Covid19 samples per day.
