Brooks REMP TPM
Manufacturer: Brooks Life Sciences
Model: REMP Tube Punching Module

The tube punching module allows small collections or low throughput laboratories to automate the sample picking of REMP 96-way tubes and REMP 384-way tubes.It can quickly and reliably re-array and reformat tubes through a unique “push through” technique. The REMP TPM functions as a standalone instrument or it can be integrated into many automated systems.
