Agilent BioTek BioSpa 8 Automated Incubator – Temperature, CO2/O2 Control, Humidity Monitoring, Lid Handling, Ideal Cell Culture Environment

BioSpa 8 Automated Incubator automates live cell and biochemical assay workflows.


BioSpa 8 Automated Incubator automates live cell and biochemical assay workflows.

The compact BioSpa integrates with other BioTek instruments, like Cytation Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader and MultiFlo FX Multi-Mode dispenser,enabling affordable walk-away automation for kinetic live cell assays that span days or weeks.

Easy programming, operation and multi-user accessibility make BioSpa a truly flexible assay platform for many laboratories and applications.

Environmental controls are available with biospa for long term kinetic live cell assays

BioSpa's temperature and gas control and monitoring, plus humidity monitoring help ensure assay success.

BioSpa software records the environmental conditions and can automatically send email or text notifications for critical assay or system conditions without requiring constant onsite monitoring.

Some applications require gentle movement and plate handling so that cells, spheroids, magnetic particles, or other components aren’t disturbed.

BioSpa’s gripper carefully handles each plate so as not to disturb even the most sensitive contents during all operations, including de-lidding.

BioSpa, combined with imagers and liquid handlers enables hundreds of applications such as wound healing, cytotoxicity and cell proliferation as well as biochemical assays such as automated ELISA.

BioSpa is multi-user friendly and accessible.

Each user can define their own file save locations enabling easy, convenient access to their own data sets.

Plate names and processes are color-coded per user for even more visibility during BioSpa operations and the system can email individual users at the completion of each image or read step.

At any point, plates can be added or removed from the BioSpa drawers as needed without disturbing other in-process experiments.

Multiple assays can run in parallel, starting or stopping individual experiments as required.

During imaging or plate reading processes, users have instant access to real-time images or microplate data to visually confirm their own assay’s progress.

The dynamic 24-hour timeline displays a snapshot of every vessel’s schedule and is updated for each addition or removal with automatically calculated read times, so all users can quickly assess their own experiments’ progress.

BioSpa 8 Automated Incubator links BioTek’s readers, imagers, washers and dispensers to bring affordable workflow automation to many laboratories and applications.
