CellWriter™ S2 Workstation

The CellWriter S2 is a robotic workstation that produces slides for both Karyotyping and FISH. By integrating BioDot’s nanoliter dispenser (BioJet™) with advanced temperature and humidity control, we have developed a highly efficient system that produces quality slides.

The CellWriter S2 processes 24 slides per batch.

The dropping process has remained a highly manual technique for years, leaving an automation void between harvesters and microscopes.  The CellWriter system now completes the continuum by automating the dropping process to deliver quality spread interphase and metaphase nuclei for analysis.

BioDot further simplifies the workflow by introducing a patented slide technology. FISHArray 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).

Normalization barcoded tubes are loaded onto the CellWriter platform. The instrument samples each tube and measures cell concentration before dropping to ensure a consistent number of cells are applied to each reaction areas (automated dilution or concentration on the fly).

ADS Biotec has exclusive rights to market and distribute BioDot’s CellWriter products in North America, Europe and Russia.
