Brooks Introduces SampleStore™ II SE
Brooks Life Science Systems has introduced the SampleStore™ II SE, an extension of its SampleStore II automated storage solutions portfolio that can manage a wide range of consumable types.
“With the flexible SampleStore II SE, laboratories now can efficiently manage small to mid-size sample collections comprised of a range of tubes, vials and plates with a single automated storage solution,” said Christopher McNary, vice president and chief commercial officer, Brooks Life Science Systems.
“In addition, an enhanced information management system allows the new storage solution to be used as a standalone unit or integrated with a broader enterprise IT strategy. The SampleStore II SE offers the optimal combination of flexibility and cold-chain management across a broad base of storage applications,” said McNary.
The modular SampleStore II SE solution is designed for libraries of 50,000 to 300,000 1.4 ml tubes at temperatures of -20° C to +20° C. It is scalable with expansion modules to meet future needs and can fit through a standard laboratory door.
The system’s intuitive Strata™ user interface, used across all of Brooks’ automated storage systems, makes it easy to store and retrieve samples. The Strata software also enables comprehensive sample information management, scalability, and integration with laboratory information management systems (LIMS).
“For users new to automation, the SampleStore II SE is ideal as a standalone solution for automated inventory management of chemical and biological samples,” said McNary. “Existing automated storage customers might apply the system for decentralized storage of focused or targeted chemical libraries employed in high-throughput screening (HTS) or lead optimization applications.”
The SampleStore II SE solution is part of Brooks Life Science System’s comprehensive and trusted sample management portfolio. It uses proven, highly reliable Brooks automation and refrigeration technology, and is backed by the company’s global service and technical support network.
