Original Press Release:
Automated Compound Storage and Retrieval System
The MatriStore(TM) System, developed by MatriCal, Inc., is an automated compound storage and retrieval system. It provides an affordable, compact approach to meeting compound storage needs for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, genomic, and proteomic research laboratories. The modular system design offers shortened installation times, reduced overall costs, and the option to grow as storage needs grow. Based on proprietary plate and tube technology and equipped with robotic components from Yamaha Robotics, the system is designed to handle millions of compounds quickly and reliably. All robotic components have been tested extensively to ensure maximum reliability.
The MatriStore System has a capacity of storing up to 40 million samples of chemical compounds, microorganisms, DNA, RNA, and other biological materials. Utilizing advanced robotics for pick and place of samples, it can store and retrieve samples at the rate of over 20,000 picks per day. Housed in a cold room environment, the MatriStore operates from ambient to -20°C. The system supports the large-scale storage of compounds held in varying plate and tube formats, performing automated plate and tube actions that transfer compounds from original locations to destination locations for particular screens.
