U.S. Patent Granted for BioTek’s BioStack 4 Microplate Stacker

publication date: Jul 19, 2016

author/source: BioTek Instruments

The BioStack™ 4 Microplate Stacker from BioTek Instruments has been granted U.S. patent 9,366,686 for its unique technology associated with automatic microplate de-lidding and re-lidding, which is especially useful in cell-based assay workflows. 

biotekBioStack 4 facilitates increased throughput and greater productivity in processes involving lidded and unlidded 96-, 384- and 1536-well microplates as well as select 6- to 48-well microplates. The design incorporates a two-position carrier for ultra-fast transfer times, and the small overall footprint allows operation in biosafety cabinets. A rotational gripper enhances versatility in portrait or landscape orientation, while the unique lid gripping method minimizes exposure of the microplate’s contents during transfer. Finally, interchangeable plate storage stacks are available for throughput needs up to 30 lidded or 50 unlidded microplates with automated restacking.

Many of BioTek’s imagers, readers, washers and dispensers may be integrated with BioStack 4, which is directly controlled via the respective instrument’s integrated software. Additional BioStack models are available to suit a variety of automated workflow process requirements.

BioTek Instruments, Inc., headquartered in Winooski, VT, USA, is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture, and sale of microplate instrumentation and software. These technologies are used to aid life science research, facilitate drug discovery, provide rapid and cost-effective analysis, and enable sensitive, accurate quantification of molecules across diverse applications.
