Rapid access storage and streamlined sample management workflows

comPOUND provides secure storage for 2D barcoded tubes at -20°C, +4°C, and ambient temperature.  Its innovative carousel system delivers high density storage within a small footprint, compact unit and allows for rapid retrieval through the convenient vending machine style design. The modular approach allows facilities to scale flexibly, connecting individual units across locations using innovative and reliable pneumatic transport technology.

Automated cherry picking saves facilities hours of highly qualified researcher and technician time in comparison to manual searching, dramatically increasing productivity. With a single comPOUND typically replacing two to three manual freezers, facilities can improve cost-efficiency and benefit from significant workflow improvements.

What our customers
say about comPOUND

Modular equipment that can be scaled up to increase capacity with a minimum of effort

"This equipment is very effective for compound management. The original purchase of two modules was expanded to 3 then 4 in a seamless manner. A D2 variant of the store was added some time later for a different sample set. The modularity and scalability of the kit was necessary for a small-medium compound management facility like ours."

Quick, reliable and accurate! compound gives us scope to progress.

"comPOUND for us invaluable, as we demand a quick reliable service. we get walk away time added by having compound either store or pick vials. These are all ready for the end user, so are kept at the perfect storage temperature. we also get 100% accuracy, which cannot get replicated with human use."

These particular units were chosen for their compact size, large storage capacity, reliability and sample management capabilities. We also chose SPT Labtech because of its professionalism and customer service. We’ve installed five comPOUND units and moved them around on site. For all the comPOUND installations the TTP Labtech engineer had each unit uncrated, built and running seamlessly within a day. Before the introduction of Australian distributors, SPT Labtech provided an excellent support service for us even though they are located several thousand miles away. All these factors were crucial to Compounds Australia’s decision to select SPT Labtech and comPOUND in order to supply high quality samples efficiently and at low cost to our customer network

Very intuitive equipment. Installation was extremely quick. We experience small issues every so often that are quickly fixed by SPT.
