Ziath Mohawk Tube Picker - Fast Large Sample Picking Device

Azenta Life Sciences' 48-position Ziath Mohawk Tube Picker

  • Avoids slow and costly robotic systems.
  • 48 solenoid pins are used to select specific frozen or thawed sample tubes.
  • Can be connected to a whole-rack reader for accuracy verification.
  • Connects directly to a 2D barcode scanner for tube confirmation and picklist generation.
  • Standard includes a 1D scanner for reading the rack barcode for further traceability.

The 48-position Ziath Mohawk tube picker from Azenta Life Sciences selects and picks wide, heavy, or tall tubes, making this system perfect for retrieving individual whole tissue samples from storage.

Proven in installations worldwide – Mohawk tube selection and picking technology avoids the need for slow and costly robotic systems. Importing a pick list, selecting, and picking larger whole tissue sample tubes takes seconds.

The Mohawk 48 uses forty-eight solenoid pins to enable a specific frozen or thawed sample tube to be raised and selected when a 48-position tube rack is presented according to a pick list from Excel or a LIMS system. Alternatively specific individual tubes can be manually selected and picked via the user interface. Individual sample tubes can be picked from a single rack, or users can create a picklist to select tubes across multiple racks. Pick lists can be created by connecting the Mohawk to a whole-rack reader, such as the Ziath Mirage. In that case, the advantage is that destination racks of picked tubes can also be verified for accuracy on the same reader.

Connecting the Mohawk 48 directly to a 2D barcode scanner for tube confirmation provides extra sample tracking and security. In this configuration, generating picklists directly from the tube barcodes is also possible. A 1D scanner for reading the rack barcode is included for further traceability.
