ID_STARlet

The ID STARlet is a new Hamilton solution developed for the unique needs of Human ID laboratories. It has been designed to streamline the different steps of the Pre-PCR  process of all DNA Forensics Laboratories. The ID STARlet combines Hamilton Robotics' technologies advanced features and Life Technologies Human Identification kits to offer a complete fully tested solution ready to run in your laboratory. Hamilton superior pipetting technology, liquid level detection features and Hamilton proprietary CO-RE technology, prevent from possible contamination issues and help to facilitate your final validation process.

All methods have been verified together with Life Technologies professional services to insure automated kit performance match the specifications and offer fast and easy implementation.

To comply to modern laboratory quality standards the ID STARlet ensures a very high level of traceability and can be integrated with sample management systems.

BENEFITS

  • Eliminate human errors
  • Increase traceability
  • Increase productivity and speed

FEATURES

  • Complete sample tracking with the Autoload option: the Autoload option reads barcodes of sample tubes, microplates and carriers, verifies correct labware positions and loads carriers automatically to the system for greater method security.
  • Minimize contamination risk with the unique CO-RE technology: the CO-RE system attaches disposable tips to the pipetting channels with a stable lock-and-key fit. The system requires no vertical force for tip attachment or tip ejection - no aerosols.
  • MAD: by monitoring the air-based pipetting action, the instrument detects clots or empty wells during the aspiration step in real time.
  • On-site performance verification by Life Technologies professional services
  • Verification report is generated using mock sample sets to guarantee instrument and reagents performance
  • Laboratory internal validation time reduced

The ID STARlet offers different configurations to automate DNA Purification, Quantification and STR/Normalization setup. The system can be adapted to your current workflow to accommodate all kinds of input or output labware. Various carriers and adapters are available to choose from different types of tubes or plates as input or output formats.

 

ID-workflow-1

 

ID STARlet offers three fully tested automated DNA Kit method groups:

 

ID-workflow-2
PrepFiler - purifies DNA from most casework or database sample types in tube or plate format – saves hours of DNA preparation time

 

Quantifiler/Quantifiler Duo - simplifies real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR) assay setup - rapidly measures sample amount and suitability
for STR typing

 

Automates complex normalization and STR setup procedure over wide (10000+ fold) DNA concentration range. Choose from one or more ABI STR typing kits (e.g., Identifiler® Plus).  Ensures successful downstream STR typing

 

.

  • Verified kits
  • Fully tested automated DNA methods
  • Verification by Life Technologies
  • Easy to use software packages
  • Proven robotic technology

 

 

A wide range of tube and plate adapters are available to customize your deck layout to best fit your laboratory workflow. For DNA Extraction, Quantification setup or STR Normalization setup, you may choose 1 or several adapters for input or output as shown below.

Deck layout for Quantification, Normalization and STR Setup

One of 5 possible sample input formats is included: Tubes (up to 96), Plates (deep well block, microtiter, PCR and semi-skirted PCR plates)
