A Hamilton Solution for Mayo Clinic

The All of Us Research Program at Mayo Clinic aims to collect biological samples from 1 million individuals in the United States in a cohort effort to revolutionize approaches to health and disease treatment. They rely on multiple Hamilton solutions to help them achieve that goal, including a –80°C BiOS automated storage system for long-term storage and a Verso automated sample storage system for sample reformatting.

The biobank also utilizes the easyBlood STARlet assay ready workstation for hands-free blood fractionation and buffy coat transfer, and a LabElite DeCapper for automated tube decapping. The systems and processes are expected to support new industry standards for biospecimen collection, processing, and storage.

A Hamilton Solution for Harvard University

As part of the Biobank for Microbiome Research in Massachusetts (BIOM-Mass) joint collaboration, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health acquired a –80°C BiOS automated storage system to store up to 3.5 million biospecimens to understand the impact of the human microbiome on health and disease states, ranging from asthma and inflammatory bowel disease, to cancer, heart disease and more.

The hands-free system provides a full audit trail and temperature log for each stored sample, and a variety of labware types may be stored and automatically picked without risk of temperature fluctuations or time-consuming hassles.

A Hamilton Solution for Lifelines

Lifelines is a major three-generation study of residents from the Northern Provinces of The Netherlands. The study’s researchers were chiefly concerned with sample safety, and chose a –80°C BiOS automated storage system to manage and store up to 8 million sensitive and diverse biological samples for use when identifying universal risk factors and their modifiers in particular disease states.

A Hamilton Solution for the Norwegian Institute for Public Health (NIPH)

The NIPH is gathering 2 million biological samples as part of the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study, and turned to a –80°C BiOS automated storage system to protect the precious samples from harm throughout their lifetime in the system. BiOS also allows researchers to more efficiently manage the vast sample inventory, and includes flexibility to easily alternate between various sample container sizes.
