A microplate hotel is available for use with the CompacT SelecT automated cell culture system. Because this microplate hotel is compatible with LiCONiC plate incubators, it allows users to transfer entire stacks of plates between the CompacT SelecT and LiCONiC incubator-based screening systems. In fact, the microplate hotel was developed in conjunction with LiCONiC and is compatible with their STR incubator range. By using the microplate hotel, researchers can reduce plate transfer times and the risks associated with manual plate relocations. With the addition of LiCONiC-compatible hotels, CompacT SelecT has extended its integration efforts beyond Kendro/Cytomat-compatible hotels, introducing new options for automated aseptic cell culture processing.
