MiniStore is 'major advance' in sample storage
The modular design allows the system to be expanded both horizontally and vertically to optimise existing lab space and can be installed through a standard door
The MiniStore, an integrated automatic sample storage and retrieval system from MatriCal, sets forth a major advance in the way that samples are both stored and retrieved.
The system also provides seamless integration with assay workstations.
Integrated robotics with interchangeable Bio-Tools enables handling of multiple sample formats within each system, including plates, tubes, and vials.
It is ideal for storage of chemical compounds, bacteria and other microorganisms, DNA, plasmids, cosmids, and more.
The environmental conditions include temperature and humidity monitoring at room temperature, 4C, -20C and inert gas.
Optional NitroStore enables ultra-cold storage to -150C for biobanking applications.
The modular design allows the system to be expanded both horizontally and vertically to optimise existing lab space and can be installed through a standard door.
The system starts with a 1500 plate capacity and is expandable to hold 32,000 plates or one million 1.4ml tubes.
Employing industry leading practices in sample handling and tracking including tube retrieval (cherry picking) of samples minimises freeze thaw cycling, oxidation, and water uptake.
Inventory management software based on individual 2D bar-coded samples ensures sample integrity for tubes or vials.
Matrical Bioscience is offering a plate adapter for use with the Sonicman automated standalone instrument for high-throughput sonication.
Matrical has introduced the Vial Weighing Station, a module that offers a single vial capture mechanism to weigh up to 210g of liquids, solids or powders.
Matrical Bioscience has introduced the Matrimix guide tube to be used exclusively with the Matrimix spinner flask.
April 07 2009 - Process Analysis and Automation (PAA) and Matrical Bioscience have partnered and will use their combined product portfolios and support teams in the life-science research market.
Matrical Bioscience is offering laser-etched 2D barcoded storage tubes in a 96- and 384-well format.
