Stacker - BMG LABTECH´s Flexible Microplate Handling System for Rapid Mid-Throughput
The Stacker is designed for integration with BMG LABTECH´s microplate readers optimizing microplate handling. It provides loading, unloading, restacking and continous feeding of up to 50 microplates.
The Control Software operates the Stacker / reader combination: the Stacker is controlled via a serial interface and the microplate reader is controlled via a DDE or ActiveX interface. The definition of the measurement protocol as well as the configuration of the microplate reader is done by using the Reader Control Software. You define the batch operation, e.g. the test name and number of microplates.
User defined run scripts
Script mode allows users to write their own run scripts, which give the user unlimited flexibility. This function can be used to choose different test definitions for different plates in one batch run or to perform more than one measurement on one plate.
The Stacker accomodates all types of microplate formats and is designed to read barcodes from several positions on the microplate.
