BioTek Features Unique Microplate Instrumentation and Applications at MipTec 2013

September 16, 2013

BioTek Instruments will showcase the new Cytation™3 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader and 405™ Touch Microplate Washer at MipTec 2013 Conference & Exhibition, to be held September 24-26 at the Congress Center Basel in Switzerland. Visit BioTek at Booth D36 to preview these exciting new instruments and learn more about BioTek’s entire range of microplate instrumentation.

The patent pending Cytation™ 3 combines automated digital microscopy and conventional microplate detection into a modular, compact platform that offers both qualitative and quantitative cellular analysis in a streamlined workflow. Multi-channel fluorescence and brightfield imaging are available and the system’s multi-mode detection mode features BioTek’s patented Hybrid Technology™ with filter- and monochromator-based reader optics. 

The 405 Touch Microplate Washer features intuitive and powerful software through the use of a new color touch screen interface. The 405 Touch is ideal for applications including cell- and bead-based protocols in 96- and 384-well microplates, while the new Verify™ technology automatically checks for clogged tubes to prevent assay failure.  Walk-away automation for both instruments is available with BioStack™ Microplate Stacker.

BioTek will present four unique application posters at Miptec that outline new workflows with recently release products:

  • Multiplexed Assay for IL-6 secretion and Cell Viability using an Epithelial Ovarian Cancer Cell Line
  • Induction and Inhibition Studies of Hypoxia and Oxidative Stress in Immortalized Keratinocytes
  • Investigation of Cell Migration using a High Density Cell Exclusion Assay and Automated Microplate Imager
  • Automated Tissue Culture Cell Fixation and Staining in Microplates
