BioSpa Live Cell Analysis System



   Five imaging modes

 Automated digital microscopy to 100x

The variety of imaging modes enable an astonishing range of microscopy applications, within a single, compact system. Automate workflows for up to 8 microplates or other labware, including cell culture dishes, and microscope slides.

   Broad magnification range


Capture the level of detail you need, from whole well montage to intracellular detail with 1.25x to 60x objectives available. The automated, 6-position turret makes it simple to capture multiple magnifications in a single workflow.

Four imaging modes, multiple imaging processes

   Environmental controls


Successful long term live cell assays rely on a controlled environment to keep cells healthy and aid proliferation. BioSpa has integrated temperature and CO2/O2 control and monitoring, plus humidity monitoring to protect cells during kinetic runs that last days or weeks.


   Automated objective turret


To efficiently view a variety of samples at a range of magnifications, install up to 6 objectives on the automated turret, and capture images automatically, within a single experiment.


   3D cell culture

3D cell culture

Gen5 software has powerful z-stacking capabilities to capture the important details of a 3D cell structure. Z-projection and image analysis provides in-depth information about the spheroid. Z-stacking montage capability brings powerful processing for 3D biologies.


   Patented laser autofocus


Provides increased reproducibility and speed, while decreasing phototoxic and photobleaching effect. Learn more about Laser Autofocus on the Technology Page.

Label-free cell counting

   Advanced cell-level analysis


Powerful tools like nuclear and cytoplasmic masking define critical, information-rich regions of interest for automated, detailed cellular analysis.


Compact and Efficient Design


The BioSpa Live Cell Analysis System easily fits inside commercially available containment enclosures and biosafety cabinets. The Baker Company offers a broad range of innovative solutions to provide isolation of cell lines and containment of potentially hazardous agents. Fluidics, power requirements, heat rejection, service and user interface ergonomics can all be accommodated.  BioTek and Baker continually work together to provide automated life science laboratories with the best possible solution.
