Hamilton Microlab STAR Liquid Handling System
As Good as Ever
The Microlab STAR has always been used in a wide variety of laboratories, universities, and institutions. Its longevity is not only due to top workmanship and engineering excellence… What makes the STAR unique is its flexibility. It can be expanded, specialized, and individualized.
Improved Visibility and Throughput
With the new multifunctional Status Light, you can instantly recognize
the process status of the STAR, even from a distance.
Combining the patented CO-RE® II (Compressed O-Ring Expansion) technology with intelligent software, the Microlab STAR ensures the most reliable and safe liquid handling performance, guaranteeing trustworthy results while lowering routine laboratory costs.
Modularity and Flexibility
Flexibility thanks to modularity. The STAR is an adaptable platform ready to evolve with the future.
- 1 HEATER SHAKER
- The Hamilton Heater Shaker (HHS) automates the heating and shaking of ANSI/SLAS footprint microplates. Multiple units may be integrated and connected via a control box for higher throughput applications.
- 2 HEATER COOLER
- The Hamilton Heater Cooler offers wide-ranging and precise temperature control for ANSI/SLAS footprint microplates.
- 3 LIQUID DISPENSER
- The Liquid Dispenser works in two directions. On one hand, it can be used as a dispenser for larger quantities of liquid without losing valuable deck space. Alternatively, it can be used as a liquid waste by sucking up liquid that is no longer needed from the deck.
- 4 COOLING CARRIER
- The Cooling Carrier combines two essential features: it can simultaneously cool samples to a predefined temperature and read them via autoload.
Better user guidance and programming.
The new VENUS five software allows users to control their system for processes from simple to complex without compromising requirements. The software is designed to be as easy as you need, yet powerful enough to provide the flexibility to set up assays exactly the way you want them automated. VENUS five software is completely integration-friendly, easily allowing third-party components to be added to the system without limiting functionality.
VENUS’ Power Steps offer a quick and easy start into the world of automation, for everyone, and at any time. There are five intuitive visual guides for frequently used pipetting tasks:
- Transfer Samples
- Add Reagent
- Serial Dilution
- Hit Picking
Increased Safety and Reliability
For you as a user, for your samples and processes, and to protect your investment.
We know it’s essential that you can work with an optimal system both today and years from now. Because it’s not always possible to predict how your research and automated workflows will change, we’ve designed a platform from your perspective. A modular system configured for your current needs, that can adapt to changing requirements by adding or upgrading features, the STAR protects your initial investment over a longer time period.
There are no limits to your imagination.
