Hamilton Cell Care STAR

Munich, April 3, 2024 - Hamilton, a pioneer in laboratory automation solutions, is set to unveil its latest innovation, the Cell Care STAR, at the upcoming Analytica exhibition in Munich on April 9th, 2024. Representing a leap forward in cell culture automation, the Cell Care STAR promises enhanced productivity, reproducibility, and reduced human errors, catering to a wide array of industries including Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology, CROs, Regenerative Medicine, and more.

The Cell Care STAR comes as a response to the increasing demand for standardized, and thus reliable, processes in the realm of cell culture. Building upon Hamilton's trusted Microlab® STAR platform, this turn-key solution offers unparalleled process safety, robustness, and pipetting accuracy, ensuring scientists can focus their valuable time on critical tasks outside the repeating and error-prone cell culture routine.

Dr. Christoph Jung, Marketing Director at Hamilton, expressed his excitement about the launch: "The Cell Care STAR is our newest addition to our portfolio of solutions in automated cell culture. We've meticulously designed this system to empower researchers with efficiency, reliability, and ease of use. It represents our passion and commitment to advancing scientific research through the innovative and robust automation Hamilton has been known for decades."

Empowering Research with Unprecedented Precision and Automation Robustness

At the heart of the Cell Care STAR is a suite of advanced features aimed at streamlining cell culture workflows. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the system excels in critical tasks such as cell seeding, splitting, media change, and incubation. Researchers can also benefit from new flexibility through the intuitive Cell Control Software, allowing for precise control and resource management over every aspect of the cell culture workflow.

"Transitioning to an automated Cell Culture Solution isn't just about optimizing workflows—it's about instilling unwavering trust in every step of the tedious and lengthy cell culture process," explained Christoph Jung. "With the Cell Care STAR, researchers can elevate their 2D adherent mammalian cell culture maintenance to unparalleled levels of reliability."

A Comprehensive Solution for Challenging Needs

Hamilton's Cell Care STAR is more than just a piece of equipment; it's a comprehensive ecosystem designed and tested to meet the challenging needs of modern laboratories. From the Class II Safety Cabinet ensuring a secure environment for cells and staff, to the Microlab STAR offering high-precision liquid handling, and many innovative modules on deck, each component of the system is engineered for excellence and robustness.

Moreover, the system's versatility extends to its integration capabilities with third-party devices, which come pre-configured and available on-demand as a complete solution. Built-in plate handling features, for instance, enable off-deck integration, allowing seamless transportation of cell culture plates to additional devices such as incubators and imagers.
