RTS Life Science has supplied its A3 Smartstore as part of the commercial scale biorepository at the Broad Institute.

The Broad Institute Biological Samples Platform (BSP) is a sample management program with expertise in sample storage and processing technology, procedures for collection and use of human samples in biomedical research, histological analyses of human tissues and the development of laboratory informatics management systems (Lims) for detailed sample tracking.

The automated RTS A3 Smartstore is used as part of a larger biorepository and enables the storage of approximately 300,000 DNA samples at -20C and has the ability to load/retrieve 96 samples in 15 minutes, as well as prioritise multiple picking requests.

Sample storage, retrieval and preparation is one of the single most time-consuming activities for analytical scientists working in pharmaceutical, biotech and academic research laboratories today.

Use of an automated storage system helps to boost sample throughput to the various research groups, and enables reliable and accurate retrieval of samples.

A stable and controlled low temperature environment ensures the integrity of all samples stored within.

A key feature of the RTS A3 Smartstore is the integrated bar code sample tracking and its inventory database capabilities, ensuring that valuable samples are never misplaced and can be efficiently retrieved on demand.

The RTS A3 Smartstore is a self-contained compact storage solution.

The system provides 24/7 performance, high-density secure storage within a temperature-controlled environment, plus easy access to samples requested via the Lims, with cherry-picking capabilities for both random and fixed order plating requests.
