Bringing efficiency and speed

Molecular biology and multiomics are fast-growing fields with ever increasing requirements for higher throughput and automation.  The Biosciences business area provides user-friendly instruments and software that allow for the gentle handling of cells and rare samples, rapid transfer of liquids and reagents as well as downstream analysis platforms to gain valuable insights from experiments.

Integrating workflows with lab orchestration software

Bringing innovative software solutions to the laboratory that integrate end-to-end workflows and multiply productivity. Our software solutions manage the digital flow of data and the physical flow of materials, making it possible to integrate lab processes, workstations, data, business rules, and personnel for the most robust and reliable outcomes.

Pioneering non-contact liquid handling

Enabling highly multiplexed assembly of thousands of chemical reactions within minutes and more flexibility in assay development.

Delivering proven single-cell dispensing technology

Providing pharmaceutical companies with proven single-cell dispensing technology for the deterministic single-cell isolation of a wide range of cell types, including CHO, HEK, primary cells, yeast and bacteria.

Complementing product portfolio

Solutions for the automated monitoring of cell-based assays, through an innovative live-cell imaging system, complementing the portfolio of inverted and upright microscopes. Additionally, the business area supports the cell line development industry with high-throughput microbioreactors for parallel cultivations in 96-well plates to bring production bioreactor conditions to the 150 to 800 μL scale level. 

Featured Product Offering

A laboratory orchestration software suite from Biosero providing end-to-end workflow management and empowers labs to bring together every activity in the lab no matter what research is performed or devices are chosen.

Laboratory scheduling software from Biosero providing integrated control over clusters of devices from a single interface.

The C.BIRD microbioreactor from CYTENA offers parallel cultivations in 96-well plates, bringing the production capacity of bioreactors to the 150 to 1,600 μL microbioreactor scale. It screens and monitors valuable cell culture parameters for hundreds of cell lines from the earliest stages, enables the early identification of the highest producing and most stable clones in order to reduce later passaging steps and scale-up efforts. Compared to traditional static culturing, the C.BIRD improves cell proliferation, recombinant protein yield and volume specific productivity

The first of its kind, the Revolution from Discover Echo offers researchers both an inverted and upright microscope capable of ultra fast scanning, mosiac image stitching providing users with brightfield, fluorescence and phase contrast imaging capabilities. Revolution is driven by Discover Echo’s propietary software module on a Surface Studio bringing a more collaborative and intuitive experience to the user by eliminating the need for eyepieces.

The UP.SIGHT streamlines cell line development (CLD) workflows by automating labor-intensive and timeconsuming steps. Thanks to the combination of a patented, highly efficient, fast and gentle single-cell dispensing technology with a superfast, high-quality imaging system users acquire full well images without the need for image stitching. This all-in-one solution from CYTENA enables nozzle imaging and 3D Full Well Imaging for double assurance of clonality from two independent optical apparatuses, leading to a probability of clonality >99.99%.

A high-throughput microbioreactor with CO2 incubator functions. The S.NEST from CYTENA shortens the process time for cell upscaling, provides a better microscale environment for cell growth, and brings more efficiency to cell line selection.

Immediate Drop-on-demand Technology I.DOT from DISPENDIX brings intuitive automation, precision and speed to non-contact liquid handling tasks like next-generation sequencing library prep, high-throughput screening and cellular assays. It reduces hands-on time and operator bias and works with low volumes for assay miniaturization. Droplets of multiple liquid classes are dispensed into the target plate below the source plate, eliminating carryover and cross-contamination.

Customer Spotlights

Biosciences

Automating protein purification to accelerate antibody discovery

Biosero recently helped an immuno-oncology (I-O) company implement Green Button Go® software to fully automate protein purification. This refinement increased walkaway time for lab scientists, mitigated human error, reduced costs and accelerated the antibody discovery workflow.
