LabTech to Distribute WaferGen’s Incubation Systems in France, UK

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Two LabTech International divisions will distribute WaferGen Biosystems’ cellular incubation systems in France and in the United Kingdom, WaferGen said today.
The exclusive agreement with Labtech International Limited in the United Kingdom and LabTech France covers distribution of WaferGen’s SmartSlide Micro-Incubation System, which is an integrated fluidic exchange product designed to function with inverted microscopes. The company said the system allows scientists to conduct time-lapse imaging studies to characterize, differentiate and proliferate cells, and to grow cells that are difficult to cultivate.
Fremont, Calif.-based Wafergen said its micro-incubator can “maintain cells at specific physiological conditions for prolonged cell or tissue imaging,” and it allows programmable fluidics exchanging.
