Watch Video    |    See Product Reviews

BioTek BioStack microplate stacker is a compact and versatile microplate stacker, compatible with Agilent BioTek washers, dispensers, plate readers, and imaging systems. The rapid plate exchange speeds deliver increased throughput and enhanced efficiency and greater productivity. BioStack can accommodate assay workflows for 24- to 1536-well plates. Microscope slides can be stacked for imaging using BioTek's custom slide holders. The BioTek BioStack 4 is a delidding microplate stacker, automating the handling of lidded microplates for sensitive cell-based assays, for complete walkaway automation.
 

applications

Microplate stackers help automate throughput for a variety of imaging, multi-mode detection and liquid handling workflows. BioStack expands the applications, by providing plate de-lidding and re-lidding for sensitive cell-based assays as well.
  • Absorbance, fluorescence, luminescence assays
  • ELISA
  • Cell-based assays

BioStack
BioStack4 has a unique 2-place carrier, design to make plate transfers super fast and enabling plate de-lidding and re-lidding.

Features

De-lidding and re-lidding capability

 
BioStack 4

All BioStack models offer fast plate transfers to and from the integrated imager, multi-mode reader or liquid handling system. The new, patented BioStack 4 model offers efficient de-lidding and re-lidding of microplates for sensitive cell-based assays.

Fast plate transfers with BioStack Neo

 

BioStack Neo is specifically designed to integrate with Synergy Neo2 for the fastest plate processing, facilitating high throughput requirements. BioStack Neo is a robust, compact system for up to 50 plates.

BioStack Neo

 

Re-stacking for complete automation

 
Convenient re-stacking for complete automation of endpoint and kinetic processes

No need for excessive manual plate handling. BioStack is programmable to restack plates to the source stack, providing complete process automation even for long-term kinetic runs.

Removable, exchangeable stacks

10, 30 and 50 plate stacks are available for use with BioStack to accommodate varying throughput requirements. Stacks are easily exchanged among multiple BioStacks in the lab, for maximum flexibility. The smaller stacks are compact to fit within a biosafety enclosure, and 50 plate stacks provide high throughput, walkaway automation.

Stacks

Compact footprint

BioStack and Epoch 2

BioStack integrated to BioTek’s readers, imagers, washers or dispensers use minimal benchspace and are easily disconnected and moved as your lab space or layout changes. The integrated system can also fit conveniently within a biosafety enclosure to facilitate sensitive workflows.

Live SARS-CoV-2 Research: Interlocking Pieces Working Together

9-June-20

When Dr. Robert Davey started researching Ebola virus drug development at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) at Galveston back in 2008, he had no idea just how keenly his work would prepare him to play a pivotal role in researching treatments for a very different global pandemic. In fact, a number of pieces fit together to support his current role in screening small molecule compounds that may be used in the fight against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
