CellWriter™ 960 STS


The CellWriter 960 is a robotic workstation that processes 96 slides per batch for both Karyotyping and FISH. CellWriter automates the dropping process to deliver quality spread interphase and metaphase nuclei for analysis.

Integrating BioDot’s nanoliter dispenser (BioJet™) with exquisite temperature and humidity control produced a highly efficient system that produces quality slides.

BioDot further simplifies the workflow with a newly-patented slide technology. CellWriter Slides™ enable multiplexed FISH assays and eliminate the need for rubber cement when preparing for hybridization.
