Beckman Integrates Biomek Cell Culture Workstation, Vi-CELL XR Analyzer

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Beckman Coulter today said it has integrated its Biomek Laboratory Automation Workstation with its Vi-CELL XR Cell Viability Analyzer for imaging and culture-analysis tasks.
 
Beckman said the joined platform will enable researchers to monitor cell growth over time and to provide analysis and data needed to “evaluate clone selection, cell expansion, and protein-expansion results.”
 
Beckman said the integrated solution includes the Vi-CELL XR, a Biomek NXP workstation configured with a Span-8 Pod and gripper, a Biomek FXP dual-bridge workstation, storage devices, incubator, plate hotel, and two detectors.
