Screening and Molecular Cell Biology Increased Throughput with Automated Incubators and Storage Systems
Pharma and biotech laboratories performing high-throughput screening, high-content screening and molecular cell biology can now benefit from a series of new automated incubators and storage solutions that offer a large capacity, fast access and wide temperature range, while helping eliminate contamination issues in high-throughput environments.
Langenselbold/Germany — The Thermo Scientific Cytomat 24 automated incubators and storage systems bring the latest incubation technology to large capacity microplate incubation applications, with excellent temperature uniformity and stability that ensure reproducibility for cell culture applications. The systems provide speedy delivery of microtiter plates through an advanced plate shuttle system to meet the needs of high-throughput laboratories and accelerate research. An LED touch screen is door mounted for easy accessibility and viewing. Convenient on-screen user prompts provide enhanced ease-of-use.
Through a fully automated Contracon decontamination routine, the Cytomat 24 automated incubators and storage systems simplify cleaning and disinfection, providing customers with confidence in their sample integrity, the company states. The Cytomat 24 automated incubators and storage systems reduce the mean plate access time to 15 seconds, allowing users to increase productivity. Users of the Cytomat 24 automated incubators and storage systems benefit from stable high relative humidity levels through an integrated humidity reservoir, preventing culture desiccation. Alerts indicate when a water refill is required, avoiding the risk of an empty reservoir.
