BioTek Brings New Efficiencies to Cancer Research Workflows at AACR 2017

March 31, 2017

Lionheart™ FX Automated Microscope is a fully integrated digital inverted microscope for live and fixed cell imaging applications.  Lionheart FX offers fluorescence, high contrast brightfield, color brightfield and phase contrast imaging with up to 100x magnification. Temperature control and available CO2/O2  control and humidity chamber optimize conditions for live cell imaging, while dual reagent injectors are available for fast kinetic assays. Along with Gen5 software, Lionheart FX provides Augmented Microscopy™ , a workflow automation concept that provides automated image capture, processing and analysis for publication-ready images and data.

Cytation™ 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader combines automated digital widefield microscopy with conventional multi-mode microplate reading in a unique, patented design to provide information-rich images and quantitative data for live cell assays, along with a broad range of other applications. Its patented Hybrid Technology™ offers filter- and monochromator-based multi-mode detection in a modular, upgradable design for versatility and workflow efficiency now and as laboratory needs evolve.

The modular MultiFlo™ FX Microplate Dispenser replaces up to five separate liquid handlers to save time and instrument costs when dispending into 6- to 1536-well microplates. Up to four independent reagents are dispensed using Parallel Dispense™ technology, which combines syringe and peristaltic pumps to eliminate potential reagent carryover, while optional RAD™ technology enables random access dispensing to individual wells. An optional wash module expands application versatility. The user-friendly, color touchscreen interface offers intuitive protocol creation and implementation.
