Product News: Automatic Confidence for Automated Cell-Based Screening

02 Jul 2009

The BioCel System from Agilent Automation Solutions is a robust, high-performance automated platform that combines fast robotics with sophisticated VWorks Automation Control software to deliver fully-integrated, completely customisable processing for medium and high throughput cell-based screening applications.

The BioCel System is the most compact high-performance automated platform available in its class. A central radial robotic arm brings speed and throughput to a system that is both affordable and easily expandable. Offered in a range of sizes, the BioCel System enables expandability by combining multiple units with plug-and-play simplicity. The BioCel System is capable of automating simple single-processes to complex multi-process applications. In fact, the BioCel System is perfect for automating virtually any cell-based screening operation including ELISAs, FLIPRs, FACS, stem cell assays, cell line maintenance and more.

The BioCel System's event-driven scheduler supports multiple plate formats and labware, multiple protocols, and linear and parallel process flows, while the software architecture accommodates expansion of the system to include additional modules and access to new third party devices.
