Thermo Fisher Scientific, Hamilton Form Sample Storage Collaboration.

M2 PHARMA-November 10, 2016-Thermo Fisher Scientific, Hamilton Form Sample Storage Collaboration


- US-based life science companies Thermo Fisher Scientific and Hamilton Storage have partnered to offer the fully automated Thermo Scientific Decapper 500 and 550 Series tube capping systems, the companies said.

Users can cap and decap both Thermo Scientific Matrix and Nunc automation tubes without owning multiple pieces of equipment.

Historically, users have stored biological samples in multiple tube types, requiring them to buy multiple decappers.

The new decapper system does the work of multiple systems and features Quick Switch technology that seamlessly transitions between different tube and rack types.

The Decapper 500 and 550 systems are perfect for use in medium- to high-throughput biotech, pharmaceutical and clinical laboratories doing compound storage, high-throughput screening, biobanking and genomic storage.

It provides additional functionality with its built-in barcode reader. The decappers can also cap and decap partial racks of tubes.

The Decapper 500 and 550 systems fill a gap between low-throughput, manual eight-channel handheld decappers and high throughput, entire-rack decappers for automated work stations.

With the new decappers, Thermo Fisher now offers end-to-end solutions for customers' sample storage workflows, including 2D barcoded storage tubes, barcode readers, sealers and cappers.
