Hamilton Verso for medium to large automated sample storage

Persberichten   •   mar 24, 2015 11:49 CET

Adaptable storage solution for compound management,
biobanking and forensic applications

Hamilton Storage Technologies, an affiliate entity of Hamilton Company, a leading provider in the design and manufacture of liquid handling, process measurement, robotics and storage solutions, today introduced the Hamilton Verso™, a truly modular automated storage platform which is easily configured to meet the needs of the most demanding sample management applications.

The Hamilton Verso system can be scaled to fit sample capacities ranging from 100,000 to over 5 million tubes at temperatures from ambient to -20°C. Verso is capable of storing and processing up to 1,500 tubes and plates per hour, and allows loading and unloading of up to 70 sample racks at a time. To complete a fully automated workflow, Verso can integrate with Hamilton automated liquid handling workstations, such as the Microlab® STAR or the VANTAGE Liquid Handling System™.

With end-users in mind, the intuitive system allows users to easily perform most jobs in three clicks or less. Features include one-touch loading, and a job queue manager which allows users to prioritize jobs and set jobs to process overnight. Every sample is tracked at all times to maintain a complete audit trail, including their temperature logs, who accessed the sample and what function was completed.

Compound screening applications are fast paced and storage systems need to be dependable and flexible to meet these needs”, said Matt Hutnak, Platform Lead, Hamilton Storage Technologies. “The Hamilton Verso provides a faster, more reliable platform which adapts to meet the user’s needs and applications without compromising their process. Verso combines storage modules which accommodate any labware or container type with functional modules that handle a wide range of labware and containers without any modification”.

Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) is generally defined as the measurement and medical interpretation of chemical parameters in blood with direct influence to drug prescribing procedures. Its main focus is on drugs with a narrow therapeutic range, which can easily be under- or overdosed.

There are numerous variables that influence the interpretation of drug concentration data: time, route and dose of drug given, time of blood sampling, handling and storage conditions, precision and accuracy of the analytical method, co-medications and, last but not least, clinical status of the patient.

Many different professionals starting with the physicians over the clinical pharmacists to the nurse are involved in this multidisciplinary process. Failure to properly carry out any one of the steps needed, can severely affect the usefulness of using drug concentrations to optimize therapy.

Therefore Hamilton started to develop together with its Partner Prolab Instruments a workstation which fits easily in clinical laboratory and minimize the human interaction to analyze blood, serum or plasma samples.

Based on the Flip Tube Technology which allows opening and closing of tubes as well as single tube transport, the workstation combines the automatic preparation of the calibration curve with up to 12 free selectable calibration points, the QC curve and the samples. Single sample processing avoids elongated queue time which prohibits further degradation of the analyte during the sample preparation procedures. Furthermore it allows the clinical laboratory to run more different parameter test without the necessity to collect samples.

The workstation is not only preparing the samples but is also capable to control the LC MS system in a way that during the LC MS run the next sample will be prepared for the next injection and after injection the workstation automatically restarts the LC MS for the next analysis. All injection and washing steps of the injection valve are done with disposable tips which minimize the time for the cleaning procedure with carry over rates less than 0.3%. The inter day variation of the analysis is less than 11%.
