Tecan and innovatis Collaborate to Enhance the Automation of Cell Culturing and Analysis
News Apr 29, 2009
Tecan and innovatis are working closely together under a new collaborative agreement to jointly market their robotic cell culture workstations and cell detection devices.
The collaboration concentrates on Cellavista, innovatis’ new automated image-based platform technology for cellular analysis, which has bright field and fluorescent capabilities and can process microplates, microscope slides and robot-friendly cell culture flasks.
Cellavista, in combination with Tecan’s flexible Freedom EVO® platform, allows automation of a wide range of cell-related processes including cell line development, cell proliferation, stem cell differentiation and various cell-based assays.
“We have already had a long, successful partnership with Tecan, and have worked very closely with Tecan application specialists on several customer projects,” said Michael Grohmann, Chief Executive Officer at innovatis. “Most Cellavista customers ask about full process automation and have shown great interest in Tecan’s automated solutions. They readily recognize the advantages of having a liquid handling and cell culture system that complements the detection capabilities of the Cellavista.”
