Walkaway Automation for Microplate-Based Processes
BioTek introduces the BioStack 4 Microplate Stacker, providing walk-away automation for routine microplate-based processes including cell-based assays and any application requiring automated plate delidding and re-lidding. BioStack 4's unique plate carrier provides fast plate exchange speeds of less than ten seconds to increase throughput and enhance productivity.
BioStack 4 is compatible with 24- to 1536-well lidded and low-volume microplates up to 22 mm high, and interchangeable 10-, 30- or 50-plate stacks are available for individual throughput needs. The small footprint allows operation within a biosafety enclosure, and conserves valuable space on the benchtop. Additionally, an optional barcode scanner increases workflow efficiency while limiting potential user errors.
BioStack 4 is compatible with BioTek's washing, dispensing, reading and imaging systems, and is directly controlled via the instrument's interface, Liquid Handling Control software, or Gen5Data Analysis Software. Applications benefiting from BioStack 4's throughput include cell-based assays, ELISAs, kinetic studies, primary screens and more.
