BioSpa™ 8 Automated Incubator

BioTek’s new BioSpa™ 8 automates incubated assay workflows by moving and storing microplates containing live cells or temperature sensitive reagents.

More versatile than a benchtop incubator, BioSpa 8 manages up to 8 microplates, flasks, or cell culture dishes in a CO2/O2, temperature and humidity monitored environment. Integrated with BioTek’s ashers,dispensers, imaging and detection systems, BioSpa 8 manages the entire process from sample preparation to detection or imaging in one compact system.

Some Application Areas:

  • Automated sample preparation for cell based assays
  • Drug absorption
  • Cell culture QC
  • Cell proliferation
  • Apoptosis
  • Cytotoxicity
  • 3D cell culture
  • Tumor invasion
  • Signal transduction
  • Stem cell differentiation
  • Phenotypic assays
  • Cell migration and invasion
  • Fluorescent protein detection
  • RNA expression

BioSpa automates cell-based assay workflows, from sample prep through image analysis

  • Incorporation of a Novel, Automated Scratch Tool and Kinetic Label-Free Imaging to Perform Wound Healing Assays

    The wound healing or "scratch" assay is one of the most highly used in vitro methods to monitor and quantify collective cell migration.
