Flexible Sample Storage

With its quick processing speeds, Verso allows more time to be spent on science instead of manual, labor-intensive tasks. Furthermore, the system can be run day and night without supervision, allowing users to run jobs after hours to maximize productivity during the day.

Verso handles a wide range of labware types, including tubes, vials, and plates, to accommodate current and future workflows. Additionally, the system can be expanded modularly to grow with future storage needs.

Features and Benefits

High-Throughput Tube Picking

  • Processing speeds up to 1,500 tubes/hr* and over 170 plates/hr*
  • A Universal Picker provides the ability to pick multiple labware types with different diameters in one picker module
  • A 96-Tube Picker-Puncher provides the ability to pick and punch tubes in the same module

User-Friendly Design Features

  • Automated Input/Output module door that allows users to load racks of samples without needing a free hand to open the system door
  • Up to 100 racks can be placed into the Input/Output (I/O) module at once
  • Optional active thawing module allows users to retrieve samples ready for pipetting by eliminating the time-consuming manual thawing step
  • Automated integration with liquid handling workstations such as Microlab STAR and Microlab VANTAGE Liquid Handling System, and other laboratory automation devices

Modular Storage System

  • Configure the system to current needs and expand the system in the field to accommodate future storage requirements
  • Smaller configurations—S1 SE and M1 SE—fit into small laboratory spaces

INSTINCT S Software

  • Run daily operations with only three clicks
  • Operate the system with minimal training
  • Set up automated inventory, access control, and full audit trails
  • Use the powerful Application Programming Interface (API) to interact directly with LIMS
  • Connect sample management software, such as Mosaic or LabWare LIMS, using drivers from the software providers

LIMS Integration

  • Use the powerful API to run any jobs in Verso using your LIMS system
  • The RESTful-based API uses the same technology as any internet browser, making the Verso API easy to integrate
  • The flexibility of the Verso API allows basic integrations, which can be set up quickly, to in-depth integrations, where the LIMS can control additional parameters of Verso and the job management
  • Mosaic, LabWare LIMS, Labvantage, and many custom LIMS systems have integrated Verso API, and the list continues to grow

Transport Samples Quickly Using the Sample Cart

The Sample Cart transports samples quickly and efficiently around your laboratory. It is a user friendly option that allows users to avoid manually carrying large quantities of samples, and it extends the ease-of-use of Hamilton Storage's systems to the whole laboratory. The Sample Cart's shelves are made up of trays that slide in and out. The trays, which need to be purchased separately, hold standard SBS-format racks

  • Stores 20 trays holding up to 100 standard SBS-format racks
  • Two front-opening doors keep samples securely inside during transport
  • Comes fully assembled
  • Saves time by transporting racks in large quantities
  • Reduces the hassle of multiple trips
  • Whole trays can be loaded into Verso
