High Throughput Information Marking System Lambda576

The Lambda576, the first-of-its-kind automated laser marker, is designed to replace manual or even automated application of tube labels which can be prone to error. Moreover, based on the ever increasing requirement to store smaller volumes of samples in smaller tubes, the ability to label typically is not possible or in many cases not suitable for automation.

Read benefits

The Lambda576 offers multiple benefits

Automatic marking

Automatically mark up to six racks (ANSI/SLAS format) of sample storage tubes.

Variety of laser engravements

Laser engrave information such as: shapes, logos, texts, codes and batch IDs directly on the tube surface.

Information on multiple places

Can pick and place vials and therefore place text on multiple places on the vial.

Wide compatibility

Compatible with tubes in 96-, 48- and 24-well format racks from different brands.

Information based on 2D code

Can etch information on the tube side based on the 2D code on the tube bottom.

High resolution markings

High resolution and consistent markings which allow small text.

High resistancy of markings

Markings are resistant against chemicals, mechanical abrasion and temperatures between +100°C and -196°C.

Intelligent user interface

Intelligent user interface with unique Play/Pause simplicity for tube addition and removal.

Markings never wear off

Laser engraved markings cannot be separated from the plastic surface and can never wear or fall off.


Software with unmatched features 

User-friendly software lets researchers create, select and laser a variety of markings: 2D codes, 1D barcodes, logos, text or sample IDs directly onto a tube’s surface. Markings can be engraved into a non-transparent area of a sample storage tube, allowing them to be read regardless of the type or color of the sample. Tubes from various suppliers such as Azenta (FluidX), LVL Technologies and Micronic are compatible with the Lambda576. By simply changing the racks and software settings, the system can be used to laser-etch a variety of brands and tubes.

Order information

Automated Laser Marker Lambda576

The AFYS3G automated laser maker can hold up to six ANSI/SLAS format racks of sample storage tubes at once. A gripper arm selects one tube from the rack and carries it to the camera. The camera then detects the laser-friendly part of the tube, which tells the gripper arm how to position the tube in front of the laser. After the tube has been positioned, the laser etches a permanent marking directly onto the tube’s surface.
