Flexible Compound Storage System

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.

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
sample management 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
sample management integration

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-footprint racks.

  • Stores 20 trays holding up to 100 standard SBS-footprint 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
