BellatRx is one of the leading providers of packaging solutions for the biotechnology and diagnostics industries. We offer a comprehensive portfolio of machines and other solutions to package and label rigid containers with precision and repeatability.
The diagnostics and bio-pharmaceutical industry have particular needs. Typically, product has high unit value and therefore reducing waste is paramount. Achieving low reject rates is critical to having a positive return on investment for equipment. The environment often fits into a clean space classified as a clean room, and therefore requires equipment which adhere to this standard.
Additionally, fill accuracy and torque control is crucial. Accuracy of fill can be achieved with servo-controlled high-precision volumetric or peristaltic pumps to ensure high-value product dispenses are accurate. Additionally, pre-fill and post-fill weight cells can be incorporated into the filling system to ensure 100% inspection of fill accuracy throughout the run. High precision torque sensors control application torque to one decimal place to guarantee no leaks occur after capping.
- Precise torque control within one decimal place
- Weight check of containers before and after filling
- Minimize product loss at changeover
- Heated or cooled product path to ensure product integrity
- Clean room build

Handling of unstable vials and tubes
In order to handle unstable vials and microtube, BellatRx has developed a unique system to feed vials from trays using a robotic pick and place. The robot arm picks microtubes from trays and places them into plastic carriers called pucks to transport them throughout the packaging line. A built-in puck return conveyor returns empty pucks to the puck loading station.
Other systems can feed microtubes directly from bulk using vibratory sorters and feed them directly into the starwheel.
