e gecko


The Kbiosystems E-Gecko

kbiosystems barcode application automated systems offer the ideal solution to high throughput to the single application of barcode labels to plates racks and Petri dishes.
kbiosystems eGecko Barcode Application systems utilise robust and proven custom designed label printer in association with CAB print engines, the eGecko system is a completely integrated combined printer and application unit in one, with only the need for electrical supply.
With easy swap head operation you can apply labels to flat and curved surfaces with simple change.
Using a fully integrated PC eGecko allows you to connect live to your network LIMs system to allow data transfer and validation of application label. Using the on board optional verification mode you can print and verify all labels to ensure no unreadable labels enter your work flow.
Using Z axis motion we offer the integrators ultimate applicator with no need to adjust between plate types and label position simply call the application macro and apply the label. This motion allows the use of ultra shallow to deep well blocks, to petri dishes, to multi labels
per face. Z axis drive also allows us to move and verify labels rather than a static single try barcode reader.
