For successful testing of compounds in High Throughput Screening and other assays, the integrity of those compounds is essential to generate reliable assay results. As variation in storage conditions could compromise the integrity and therefore influence test results, storage in a monitored and controlled environment is crucial.
During automated storage using Hamilton Storage Technologies' solutions environmental parameters are monitored and controlled, thus maintaining integrity and eliminating variations in conditions. Storage is available under controlled atmosphere for a number of temperatures from -80°C to ambient. An environmentally controlled Server allows controlled output of single racks. It also offers the option to re-array compound tubes using a tube picker inside the system. The possibility to restrict access to authorized individuals allows documenting the chain of custody.
