Microlab STAR

Hamilton STAR
Liquid Handler

The Microlab® STARTM 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 but what makes the STAR unique is its flexibility. It can be expanded, specialized, and individualized.

Enhanced Liquid Handling Performance

Hamilton Microlab STAR combines our 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.

Microlab STAR's Modularity and Flexibility

The Hamilton Microlab STAR is an adaptable platform ready to evolve with the future, thanks to it's flexibility and modularity.

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.
The Hamilton Heater Cooler offers wide-ranging and precise temperature control for ANSI/SLAS footprint microplates.
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.
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, it is powerful enough to provide the flexibility to set up assays exactly the way you want them automated. Hamilton's VENUS software is completely integration-friendly, easily allowing third-party components to be added to the system without limiting functionality.
