BioSpa 8 automated incubator announced by BioTek

BioTek Instruments released the BioSpa™ 8 Automated Incubator, a unique platform that links microplate washers and dispensers with readers and imaging systems for unattended workflow automation. Real time temperature and CO2/O2 control and monitoring, plus humidity level monitoring and plate lid handling provide an ideal environment for cell-based and other assays, with minimal manual intervention.

Biospa Automated Incubator

BioSpa 8’s robotic arm moves microplates, cell culture dishes and flasks, between its environment-controlled drawers and integrated instruments. The system is compact enough to fit within a biosafety enclosure for added protection essential to long term live cell assays, including 3D cell culture studies and other live cell assays. BioSpa 8 is also suited for temperature sensitive and controlled-environment biochemical assays.

The BioSpa system software integrates with the linked instrument's software for efficiency and programming ease, precisely controlling all operations for short or long-term uninterrupted runs. Customizable text or email notifications and alerts relieve the need for onsite monitoring, and session timelines and environmental reports allow quick scrutiny of the process and system status for added confidence.
