Agilent's BenchCel Microplate Handler Now Available Through BioTek For Full Workflow Automation

BioTek announces that Agilent’s BenchCel Microplate Handler is now added to its portfolio of walkaway automated solutions. The modular BenchCel Microplate Handler is a high-speed robot with an open, flexible and scalable format to bring efficiency to diverse applications such as ELISA, endpoint add-and-read assays and cell fix-stain-image processes.

By integrating the BenchCel between a BioTek liquid handling device and detection or imaging system, sample throughput is increased, while manual intervention is decreased.

The BenchCel is powered by VWorks software, and incorporates an easy-to-use interface for dynamic scheduling of workflows. Additionally, user-friendly software interfaces may be created for a streamlined experience. Compatible BioTek devices include the EL406 Washer/Dispenser, MultiFlo FX Multi-Mode Dispenser, Synergy Neo2 Hybrid Multi-Mode Reader, Epoch 2 Microplate Spectrophotometer and Cytation 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader.

With a small footprint, BenchCel may be used on the benchtop or in a biosafety cabinet, and for added flexibility, it is compatible with a variety of microplates including a deepwell plates.
