Hamilton Star line workstations

Thursday, 24 November, 2011 | Supplied by: Bio-Strategy Pty Limited



The Hamilton Star line workstations are based on superior air displacement pipetting technology. This increases accuracy and repeatability while providing chain of custody with pipette condition monitoring and recording. Each workstation can be configured with multiple arms and each arm can be configured with multiple pipetting and labware gripping devices. Pipetting channels and labware grippers move independently of each other, supporting the use of a wide range of labware. The autoload option provides barcode tracking of samples, labware, racks and carriers. All workstation functions and integrated third-party devices are controlled by the Venus software.

Venus Two is the latest software package for the Star Line. It offers intuitive, flexible and powerful programming control. Venus offers all the tools to allow simple to complex programming, without limiting imagination or compromising requirements.

Starline instruments are also equipped with CO-RE technology (compressed O-ring expansion): where the system attaches disposable tips or washable steel tips to the pipetting channels with a stable lock-and-key fit and a precision of ±0.1 mm in all axes. The Hamilton Star is therefore suitable for tasks where high precision is required.

The Hamilton Star requires no vertical force for tip attachment or tip ejection, thus eliminating mechanical stress and improving the overall system reliability along with pipetting speed and dexterity. Added benefits of CO-RE technology include: use of both disposable and washable tips within the same run; ability to pick up CO-RE grippers and other tools; and elimination of aerosol production upon tip ejection.

Data can be tracked and processed within the application as well as interfaces to internal and external databases, including LIMS. The Star can serve as a simple pipettor for serial dilutions or act as the centre of a large system with multiple workstations and third-party devices such incubators, cell counters, centrifuges, etc.
