Nanostream designs plate changing system to meet demand

Nanostream has introduced an integrated plate changing system
designed to meet the increasing demand in high-throughput
analytical laboratories. The system also aims to allow users to
increase their analytical throughput for a variety of drug
discovery applications.

"Labs are facing more pressure to increase analysis capacity with fewer resources. We want to equip scientists with high-throughput tools like the integrated plate changing system to accomplish more with less operating time, less solvent, fewer people,"​ said Hau Duong, vice president of engineering.

"With the ability to robustly process plates 24/7, scientists will not only finish more analyses, they will have the freedom to undertake new and meaningful projects."

The plate changing system holds up to 50 recommended SBS standard 384- or 96-well microplates. (High capacity racks are available for up to 70 plates.) By storing plates in vertical towers, the plate changing system has a relatively small footprint that minimises space requirements in the lab.

Nanostream developed the plate changing system to be easily incorporated into users' current automation workflow and liquid-handling processes.

In an article, featured in Feruary's issue of Pharmaceutical Technology,​ Gene Dantsker, vice president of technology at Nanostream​ said: "Customers need to do the work they currently do faster by automating routine tasks, which frees up their mental hands to be the chemists and drug developers they really are."

"They're continuously asking us not to interfere with their workflow while providing high-quality analysis."

By enabling users to control plate selection via barcode entry, the Veloce software system facilitates full automation of LC-based assays. Veloce delivers sampling precision by enabling the user to pre-program sample sequences for routine use freeing scientists to perform other research activities.
