Overview

System Overview.

In early 2015 Labman installed and commissioned a semi-automated vial processing system into a UK diagnostics laboratory for increasing production rates of immunodiagnostic test kits. The system is designed to handle four different vial types with fully customisable dispensing, sealing, capping and printing parameters which enables a high degree of process flexibility. It is operated by a single user who is responsible for loading empty vials and removing the processed vials. The system dispenses product to a +/- 2% (by volume) tolerance in the range of 2ml to 50ml with an average throughput of 800 vials per hour. Vials are check weighed at a user specified interval before being heat sealed, capped and then printed with manufacturer’s data. The system features automatic dispense calibration to maintain the dispense tolerance throughout the process run, minimising system downtime or the need for offline calibration checks.

“Labman staff have always been thoroughly professional and are experts in their field.”
