Rapid research project work is now supported by a new integration between Titian Software’s Mosaic sample management software and Hamilton Storage’s compact automated stores. This integrated system, combining the best from two industry-leading companies, is already installed in labs throughout North America and Europe - and there are more installations underway. The level of interest demonstrates how efficient logistics and sample management are vital to supporting research.
This seamless integration combines Mosaic’s inventory management with Hamilton Storage’s high-density stores to provide a comprehensive sample management system which is easily controlled from one interface. This means both scientists and sample management operators can use the same software to search for and order samples from one or many stores, and get real time updates on progress.
Titian’s Mosaic software brings efficient sample tracking, ordering, workflow management and a full audit trail to complement the secure temperature-controlled environment for multiple tube and plate types provided by Hamilton Storage's SAM HD and new Verso Q20 stores.
Toby Winchester, Automation Product Manager at Titian said:
“This integration means samples for an assay can be picked from any store, urgent orders are automatically prioritised, error handling is streamlined, while the audit trail automatically updates who ordered which sample and when. This leaves scientists free to focus attention on the other demands of their day.”
The integration between Titian Software's Mosaic and Hamilton Storage springs from a continuous vendor partnership that makes the best use of storage capacity, optimises processing, provides full access control rights to samples and improves error handling and recovery.
An additional benefit of this Titian Software-Hamilton Storage partnership is the continuous evolution of Mosaic’s AutoMated Stores (AMS) control application, so it is responsive to customer requirements and the development of new Hamilton Storage store types and software.
