Cell-Based Assays

One platform to meet your evolving assay needs

Cell Culture is an essential workflow that enables studies to be performed in drug discovery and scientific research. As throughput and the desire to have more rich data early on in the research studies, automation continues to be integral in aiding laboratories manage the seeding, feeding and passaging of cells, that otherwise could be significant time and be error prone.

Transform your Biomek liquid handler into a complete workflow solution that will optimize the efficiency, consistency, and reliability of your lab’s operations. From simple on-deck devices to complete robotic systems, we can develop focused, yet flexible, Biomek-based solutions by integrating Beckman Coulter and third-party instruments.

Biomek Software: Workflow Intelligence at Every Step

Every time your sample moves, data moves. To streamline and enable peace of mind, the Biomek Software Suite maintains your data integrity and schedule.

At the heart of every Biomek is the software. Biomek software provides users with the confidence to know their samples are being treated consistently every run, and with every liquid transfer, the data from your samples is being stored. The intuitive, drag and drop user interface makes setting up and maintaining your workflows easy. To meet the evolving laboratory needs of workflows, we also offer:

  • SAMI EX: designed to provide complete automation and process control by creating planned schedules with the benefits of an optimized, predictable static schedule
  • DART (Data Acquisition and Reporting Tool): gathers data and synthesizes runtime information from Biomek log files to capture each manipulation of the sample during the course of the method
  • SAMI Process Management Software (SPMS): is a calendar organizational tool that allows the addition, monitoring, and planning of SAMI EX methods and other events as part of user-defined processes
  • PowerPack: features advanced tools to make programming data-intensive methods easy
Biomek Automated Workstations are not intended or validated for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions.
