BioTek Demonstrates Workflow Automation Capabilities at Neuroscience 2017

November 3, 2017

Join BioTek Instruments at the Society for Neuroscience’s 47th annual meeting, Neuroscience 2017, to see how BioTek’s life science instruments and automated systems can increase versatility and efficiency in reading, washing, dispensing and imaging workflows.

Neuroscience 2017 is the world’s largest neuroscience conference for scientists and physicians devoted to understanding the brain and nervous system. The event will be held November 11-15 in Washington, D.C.  BioTek’s booth #2211 will feature their latest technologies listed below.

BioTek’s featured life science innovations include:

  • BioSpa Live Cell Imaging System fully automates both fixed and live cell imaging and analysis by combining BioTek’s BioSpa™ 8 Automated Incubator and Cytation™ 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader in a single, automated system. BioSpa 8 provides precise environmental control and monitoring for live cell assays in up to 8 lidded or unlidded microplates or other labware. BioSpa incorporates a robotic gripper to move samples from its incubator drawers to Cytation 5 for automated image capture, processing and phenotypic quantitative analysis of live cell assays. Cytation 5’s imaging modes include fluorescence, brightfield, color brightfield and phase contrast up to 60x magnification. BioTek’s washers and dispensers can be added to the system for complete workflow automation.
  • Lionheart™ FX Automated Microscope with Augmented Microscopy™ is a fully-integrated digital microscopy system. Imaging modes include fluorescence, brightfield, color brightfield and phase contrast up to 100x magnification, along with automated image capture, processing and analysis, providing publication-ready images and data. Temperature and gas control, plus an available humidity chamber and reagent injector provide optimal conditions for live cell imaging.                                                                  
  • EL406™ Washer Dispenser offers fast, full plate washing along with three reagent dispensers in one, compact instrument. Its multiple capabilities include gentle culture media exchanges, reagent additions for cellular assays, washing and dispensing for standard assays, plus biomagnetic separation and vacuum filtration protocols. The patented Dual-Action™ manifold optimizes washing for loosely adherent cell monolayers, while the patented Ultrasonic Advantage™ helps prevent blockages in the manifold tubes before washing, to reduce assay failure.
