BioTek’s New BioStack™ 4 Microplate Stacker Uncovers New Ways to Enhance Assay Productivity
11 Sep 2013

BioTek introduces the BioStack™ 4 Microplate Stacker, providing walk-away automation for routine microplate-based processes including cell-based assays and any application requiring automated plate delidding and re-lidding. BioStack 4’s unique plate carrier provides fast plate exchange speeds of less than ten seconds to increase throughput and enhance productivity.

BioStack 4 is compatible with 24- to 1536-well lidded and low-volume microplates up to 22 mm high, and interchangeable 10-, 30- or 50-plate stacks are available for individual throughput needs. The small footprint allows operation within a biosafety enclosure, and conserves valuable space on the benchtop. Additionally, an optional barcode scanner increases workflow efficiency while limiting potential user errors.

BioStack 4 is compatible with BioTek’s washing, dispensing, reading and imaging systems, and is directly controlled via the instrument’s interface, Liquid Handling Control™ software, or Gen5™ Data Analysis Software. Applications benefiting from BioStack 4’s throughput include cell-based assays, ELISAs, kinetic studies, primary screens and more.
