The Scinomix Retros

A fully-automated tube sorting and selecting system


The fully automated tube sorter Scinomix Retros by Scinomix is a bench-top device that can sort tubes, prepare sample racks (cherry-pick), and validate your sample data. With easy-to-use software, this high-tech device integrates seamlessly into your laboratory environment and reduces human error.

As a data-driven device, the Scinomix Retros fully automates what otherwise would have been tedious and error-prone tasks in the lab. This high throughput tube sorter is ideal for labs that require a more efficient workflow.

Let the Scinomix Retros become the center of attention

by letting the device do all the heavy lifting

High Throughput
High Capacity

The Scinomix Retros has a 12-rack workspace, which enables you to sort up to roughly 1200 tubes in one session. This high capacity allows the users valuable walk-away time and creates opportunities to focus on other tasks in the lab.

A well-established Scinomix Retros device will have finished a single session in under an hour. This means that the throughput of the Scinomix Retros is as high as 1200 tubes per hour.

Compatible with a different branded tubes

and with lots of different sizes.

The fact that there are many branded sample tubes out there, is what has driven the design behind the tube sorter Scinomix Retros. It is designed to be compatible with a large number of brands, like the Micronic sample storage tubes for example.

Not only is there a huge amount of branded tubes, but there is also a huge difference between sizes and shapes. Luckily the Scinomix Retros is also compatible with a broad range of different tube sizes and volumes. The Scinomix Retros can cherry-pick tubes ranging in volume from 0.5 mL to 50 mL. The Scinomix Retros works with sample storage tubes that have a max height of 120 mm and a max diameter of 35 mm.
