Weigh, image, mark.

MultiVial is a live project currently in product exploration phase. The system has capability for vial weighing, labelling/marking and imaging. The project provides an exciting opportunity for potential buyers to help us discover solutions for a broader scope of analytical processes.

Accessible and collaborative.

MultiVial is a configurable system which offers fast and efficient processing of vials. The concept is based around weighing, vial imaging, marking or labelling, or a combination. Handling glass and plastic vials from 1ml - 50ml, the platform can process up to ten SBS racks of mixed vials in one run. It can be dropped into any existing workflow owing to its collaborative arm and compact size. MultiVial’s open REST API enables seamless integration with other devices, and easy access to your data.

Accurate and intuitive weighing

MultiVial’s collaborative design allows technicians to work safely in the same space. With an intuitive and simple interface, minimal training is required for new users. Weigh to an accuracy of up to 5 d.p. and mark up to 960 1ml vials or 60 50ml vials, or any combination in the same run.
  • Smart rack detection technology automatically detects the presence of racks as the user places them onto the instrument
  • Priority selection allows the user to prioritise a particular rack
  • Integrated antistatic bars and draft shield allow the balance to tare quickly for efficient weighing

Vial imaging

Vial imaging can provide essential data for research and quality purposes in all areas of chemistry and materials science. Owing to an integrated line scan camera, the MultiVial system can capture crucial data for further analysis purposes such as vial fill volume, precipitate analysis, solid residue analysis and liquid phase separation. The camera can be used to photograph a cross section the vial, or take a continuous image of the entire inner surface of the vial.
  • Vial fill volume
  • Precipitate analysis
  • Solid residue analysis
  • Liquid phase separation

Laser marking and labelling

Laser etching labware is historically problematic and inconsistent. MultiVial’s laser etching capability has been fine tuned and tested to quickly and consistently mark a range of glassware. With configurable marking options, the system is capable of laser etching directly onto the vial to suit your upstream processes. A physical label printer is an optional alternative.
  • Laser marking removes the need for inks and tedious/costly consumables by permanently etching the surface with numbers, bar codes or QR codes
  • A line scan camera is used to automatically detect the marking area
  • The system handles glass and plastic vials/tubes

“The newest model of TIDAS instruments is being put through rigorous evaluation and constant use. The upgrades to the software and automatic draw-down device have made this newest member of the TIDAS family an indispensable must have. The results obtained from the TIDAS instruments have made it easy to show our customers the reality of lab grind analysis without putting on a lab coat, for this we are grateful. Thanks to the Labman team for the great support and superb customer service. The transition from installation to full practice was a snap.”
