BioTek Adds Versatility to BioStack Microplate Stackers

August 8, 2008

BioTek Instruments, Inc. continues to improve microplate technologies with the introduction of a new BioStack™ Microplate Stacker with Rotational Wrist. This new stacker is designed for enhanced flexibility, customizable automation and broad compatibility in microplate-based applications.

The BioStack’s integrated rotational wrist accommodates instrument carriers with both landscape and portrait orientations enabling the instrument’s keypad and display to remain conveniently positioned for unimpaired access. This feature provides greater compatibility with BioTek’s microplate washers, dispensers, pipetting systems and detection systems as well as third party microplate instruments.

In addition, new 50-microplate storage stacks or the originally designed 30-microplate stacks may be selected to accommodate individual throughput needs. The scalable and cost-effective BioStack also offers self-diagnostics, rugged design and quiet operation with an optional barcode scanner.

BioTek Instruments, Inc., headquartered in Winooski, VT, is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture, and sale of microplate instrumentation and software. BioTek instrumentation is used to accelerate the drug discovery process, to advance discoveries in genomics and proteomics, and to aid in the advancement of life science research.
