"Very poor, many blocks, mis feeds. Engineer came out three times and even gave us a second unit which is a possible resolution. The plate incompatibility was not mentioned prior to purchase."
The Stacker is a modular attachment for mid-throughput microplate handling that can be used with BMG LABTECH plate readers including the PHERAstar series, Omega series and NEPHELOstar Plus.
With the Stacker in position, you can dramatically increase your plate throughput. The Stacker can automatically feed up to 50 plates for great improvements in speed and automation, while offering the user control scripting and bar coding capability.
The Control Software operates the Stacker / reader combination: the Stacker is controlled via a serial interface and the microplate reader is controlled via a DDE or ActiveX interface. The definition of the measurement protocol as well as the configuration of the microplate reader is done by using the Reader Control Software. You define the batch operation, e.g. the test name and number of microplates.
