MGISTP-3000 from MGI is considered a benchtop automated sample transfer processing system. It combines tube decapping, barcode identification, tube recapping, automated liquid transfer, and negative pressure protection.

MGISTP-3000 provides high torque decapping gripper, 23-in touch screen, and HEPA filters, ensuring the utmost filtration efficiency of 99.995% at 0.3 µm. Moreover, MGISTP-3000 enables users to load three types of tubes in the same run.

Users can transfer 96 samples from screw cap transport tubes to 96-Well Microplates in nearly 40 minutes. A HEPA filter purifies inflow and exhaust air to avoid aerosol pollution and ensure a secure working environment for nucleic acid extraction and laboratory technicians.


Automated: Completely automated—offers tube decapping, tube recapping, barcode identification, and automated liquid transfer functions.

Easy to use: Comes with a user-friendly GUI touch screen and enables users to load three types of tubes in a similar run.

Safe: Two HEPA-filtration and one UV light guarantee a more secure working environment for both liquid transfer and laboratory technicians.

High Reliability: Users can automatically log common errors without requiring human intervention to guarantee continuous functioning.
