BioTek Presents Multi-Functional, Microplate-Based Workflow Solutions At Analytica 2014

Request Information

BioTek Instruments, Inc., will highlight their latest microplate instrumentation technologies, designed to automate and improve lab efficiency, at Hall A3, Stand #310 during Analytica 2014, the 24th International Trade Fair for Laboratory Technology, Analysis and Biotechnology. The exhibition will be held April 1-4 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre / ICM in Munich, Germany.

Featured at BioTek's stand will be two new microplate reader technologies. The award-winning and patent pending Cytation™ 3 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader combines automated digital fluorescence microscopy and conventional microplate detection in a single, modular and upgradable platform. Quantitative and phenotypic analyses may be completed easily and efficiently across a variety of assays. Cytation 3 is particularly useful for live cell assays where temperature control and available gas control module create an ideal environment for growing, imaging, counting and analyzing cells in microplates, slides, petri dishes and other vessels.

BioTek's recently released MultiFlo™ FX Microplate Dispenser is now available with optional RAD™ (Random Access Dispense) technology to further extend its application range and flexibility. RAD technology offers single-channel dispensing to random individual microplate wells along with rapid reagent dispensing into large volume wells of 6- to 24- well microplates. MultiFlo FX can also be separately configured with an optional wash module for 6- to 384-well plates. When incorporating RAD technology or the washing module, MultiFlo FX can replace up to five separate liquid handlers, thus saving time and instrumentation costs.

Additional microplate-based workflow solutions in reading, washing, dispensing and automating will be available at Hall A3, Stand #310.
