BioTek has announced 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.
