The dropping process has remained a highly manual technique for years, leaving an automation void between harvesters and microscopes. CellWriter now completes the continuum, by automating the dropping process to deliver quality spread interphase and metaphase nuclei for analysis.
The CellWriter 960 is a robotic workstation that produces slides for both Karyotyping and FISH. By integrating BioDot’s nanoliter dispenser (BioJet™) with exquisite temperature and humidity control, we have developed a highly efficient system that produces quality slides.
BioDot further simplifies the workflow by introducing a new, patented slide technology. CellWriter Slides™ enable multiplexed FISH assays and eliminate the need for rubber cement when preparing for hybridization (a step that is both messy and time consuming).
