The SampleStore II SE automated storage system is designed to manage a wide range of consumable types. The manufacturer says laboratories now can efficiently manage small to mid-size sample collections comprised of a range of tubes, vials and plates with a single automated storage solution. In addition, an enhanced information management system allows the new storage solution to be used as a standalone unit or integrated with a broader enterprise IT strategy. The storage system combines flexibility and cold-chain management across a broad base of storage applications.
The modular storage system is designed for libraries of 50,000 to 300,000 1.4 ml tubes at temperatures of -20° C to +20° C. It is scalable with expansion modules to meet future needs and can fit through a standard laboratory door.
The system’s intuitive user interface makes it easy to store and retrieve samples. The software also enables comprehensive sample information management, scalability, and integration with laboratory information management systems (LIMS). Brooks Automation
