    for samples


SAM HD is an automated sample management system available in +4°C, -20°C, -40°C and -80°C platforms for secure storage of samples in a small-sized store, with high-density storage capabilities.

Increase storage capacity to store more samples in the same footprint using RackWare high-density storage racks
Store and pick up to 6 different tube types (with the same diameter) to easily adapt to changing workflows
Easily operate the system using the new INSTINCT S operating system, the standard software across Hamilton Storage platforms
Integrate with LIMS systems operating on Windows 10

Available in +4°C, -20°C, -40°C and -80°C platforms
Retrieves samples in less than 70 seconds
Provides sample safety—samples are stored securely in the system and user access rights can be controlled by the software
Reads both 2D barcodes on the bottom and 1D/2D barcodes on the side of the tube for full sample tracking
Remote monitoring and job execution
Full alarm capabilities—continuous environment monitoring, even during picking, ensuring the samples never reach critical temperature
A standard UPS and LN2 backup on the -80°C platform, or CO2 on the -20°C platform
Small footprint fits easily into existing laboratories for a straightforward installation
Patented automation eliminates freeze-thaw cycles and limits moisture introduction to the system to maintain sample integrity
