New Peltier Cooling Module Optimizes Conditions for Temperature Sensitive Assays

October 16, 2018

BioTek has released a Peltier Cooling Module for the Cytation™ Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Readers. The compact module keeps internal temperature rise to less than one degree over ambient, regardless of fluctuations from external and internal factors. The module helps maintain and optimize stability for more consistent data in assays run at ambient temperature. The module also quickly reduces internal temperature after incubated assays for efficient transitions between multiple applications with different temperature requirements.

New AutoScratch™ Wound Making Tool Enhances Reproducibility and Efficiency

October 3, 2018

BioTek introduces the new AutoScratch™ Wound Making Tool to facilitate two dimensional (2D) collective cell migration and invasion applications. With a simple pushbutton operation, the AutoScratch automatically creates consistent scratches of equivalent size and area in confluent cell monolayers grown in 24- or 96-well microplate format. This eliminates variability found in manual scratch methods and increases the reproducibility necessary to analyze and normalize results across subsequent assays. The compact system easily fits into laminar flow hoods, while an integrated, multi-reservoir cleaning trough and pre-programmed method offer hands-free cleaning and decontamination of the interchangeable pin heads before and after use.
