The fully automated state-of-the-
The comPOUND® modular system provides a compact and secure, fully automated storage and dispensing facility for chemical and biological compound libraries. Up to 100,000 1.4 mL tubes or 200,000 0.5 mL microtubes can be stored per unit in a temperature controlled, dry, inert, hermetically sealed environment;
Prof. Peter Fischer, Director, Centre for Biomolecular Sciences, University of Nottingham, commented, “Translational research is a key focus in the University, with a strong track record in pharmaceutical sciences. Worldwide pharmaceutical companies are turning to academic partners to support compound screening for drug R&D. The long-term vision is to provide a unique compound collection attractive to academic and pharma partners – especially SMEs without their own collections”
“We were looking for an integrated compound storage and handling system that would increase throughput, maintain long-term compound integrity, improve reliability with complete inventory control and unattended operation”, he continued.
Simon Tullett, Product Manager for comPOUND and comPILER also commented “We are delighted to be supporting a venture such as the MCCC. Our systems readily integrated with the existing lab set-up and have been operational for a year”.
He continued, “With scope to integrate up to six comPOUND stores simultaneously with the comPILER platform, you can minimise your initial investment in capital equipment, yet still grow your library and your throughput when required”.
