Where entrepreneurial scientists come to change the world
one bench at a time
Starting a company is hard. Starting a life-science company is even harder. With the need for specialized equipment and highly regulated lab space, the first experiment can take months and cost millions. At MBC BioLabs, we’re flipping that model on its head.
The 4150 TapeStation system is an automated electrophoresis solution for quality control (QC) of DNA and RNA samples. For the complete portfolio of DNA and RNA assays, any sample number from 1 to 16 samples can be analyzed at constant cost per sample. The ready-to-use ScreenTape technology enables ultimate flexibility for switching between assays. The system handles your samples in two 8-tube strips.
The AriaMx Real-Time PCR system is a fully integrated qPCR solution for amplification, detection, and data analysis. It has a closed-tube PCR detection format and can be used with many fluorescence detection chemistries, including SYBR Green and EvaGreen dyes, and fluorogenic probe systems such as TaqMan. A modular and flexible design with intuitive touch-screen interface improves productivity.
The gold standard in microplate plate washers, compatible with 96 and 384 well plates. The 405 TS also has a unique set of features designed to efficiently and effectively wash cell-based assays, microsphere-based assays and ELISA, with outstanding results for every application.
Agilent BioTek Cytation5 Automated Imaging and Plate Reader
