    BioCel System Configurations
    "BioCel is a stable, adaptable and dependable screening platform. We use our three systems for end-to-end 'seed to read' cellular HCB screening. It combines industry-leading Agilent components like VSpin, PlateLoc, Bravo and DDR with 3rd party kit. Good system design is key to get optimum use of the deck space. Upgradable with things like light curtains, laminar flow etc. US-based support service is excellent; EU support can be less predictable. For me the USP is the VWorks software. This allows me to precisely control how each experiment takes place, and reconfigure this on the fly to meet changing needs. The latest software has resolved many crashing issues, but lags a bit, and still requires an understanding of Javascript for optimum use. The introduction of Forms and Java helper has improved user-friendliness. Setup costs can be on the high side. "

    Microlab STAR Line Liquid Handling Workstations
    "Provides the required high level of dispensing accuracy and reliable operation. Capable of >10k dispenses between services. O-ring pipette seal and transfer system is the most similar to manual pipetting of any pipetting system. Variable span and tip picking 8-head extremely flexible, 96- & 384-head stamps useable with many plate types, liquid detection excellent. Wide range of optional extras allow customisation to meet ongoing/changing user requirements. Top of the range error handling options. The base language Vector is highly flexible, but requires expert programming to be best utilised. For the price, you get a mechanically excellent system that will remain flexible enough to meet your needs in the future, but you may want to consider the value of other software providers if you intend to have users developing programs, as the base language is a far cry from the icon-driven workflows used with other systems."
