Makes lab work faster and easier with very high throughput and reproducibility.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Sample and reagent transfer

"Very easy to program and utilize for so many laboratory work especially with COVID19 testing at Quest Diagnostics. Application for testing is very fast and results are 100% reproducible. I would never replace this instrument with another brand."

Great Instrument, use it everyday!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Sample testing

"Hamilton liquid Handlers are what my lab uses for a majority of our work with compound management and creating assay ready plates. Hamilton’s are reliable and easy to use, we are very happy with these liquid handlers and they continue to give good results."

Great once we finished validation and script writing. Horrible process to set up.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Sample transfer of biofluids

"We purchased the instrument for sub aliquot work of CSF, plasma, serum, urine and whole blood. We had an issue with our special chilled carrier for the deck. It was made wrong and had to be sent back. Then the second one was damaged in shipment. Third time was the charm. However by then getting a field application specialist to return to the lab to finish the set has proven problematic."

An indispensable asset to the success of our laboratory!
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Preparing biological samples for LC-MS/MS analysis

"The Hamilton STARlet robotic pipettor allows us to do a lot of different types of sample prep (LLE, SLE, PPT, SPE) in 96 well plate format, that we simply would not be able to do manually. In general it works quite well and we have minimal issues with our STARlet. One of the main challenges with the Hamilton STARlet (& from what I understand is also common to other brands of robotic pipettors) is the method programming. It's a bit challenging for a non-programmer!"

Great Instrument-Not Easy to Write Programs
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Immunoassays and ELISA development

"The STARLet is a very user friendly automated liquid handling system. It consistently yields very reproducible data. However, programming the system for new assays is not easy, you have to learn the programming language. Their technical reps are great and have custom programmed all of our assays."

Fully automated sample processing for therapeutic drug monitoring offers traceability and reproducibility

 

Hamilton’s Bioanalytical STARlet workstation offers fully automated sample preparation for pre-analytical and analytical LC-MS workflows including direct injection into the HPLC. Minimizing human interaction with blood, serum, or plasma samples, the Bioanalytical STARlet includes barcode reading to reduce human errors and provide sample traceability whilst completing just-in-time sample processing during the HPLC runtime.

 

Features:

  • Single Sample Processing using FlipTube® A 1.5 mL tubes
  • Aerosol free opening of the FlipTube® A 1.5mL tubes using “non-snapping” process
  • Secure transport of FlipTubes to the on deck shaker and centrifuge with the pressure controlled CO-RE® Lid Tool
  • Direct sample injection into a 15000 psi HPLC valve 

 

Benefits:

  • Save time and labor with automated QC and calibration curve preparation
  • Single sample processing avoids sample degradation
  • Direct LC-MS integration for increased walk away time
  • Ensure data integrity with complete sample tracking
