BioTek Insights User Group Meeting at NIH


On February 7th, BioTek Instruments held its inaugural user’s group meeting, Insights 2019, at the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD. The meeting offered a venue for the exchange of ideas and a chance to develop new collaborations among our customers. Seven BioTek customers presented their research, with topics ranging from novel imaging methods for the screening of drugs inhibiting the sickling of red blood cells, to machine learning for the quantification of morphology changes in zebrafish. Apart from the customer presentations, attendees participated in workshops that demonstrated the following applications:
  • Normalization of Agilent Seahorse OCR and ECAR data using cell counting with Cytation™ 5 
  • Barrier integrity assays using Mimetas OrganoPlate Technology and Cytation 1 
  • Automated media exchange for spheroid proliferation assays using MultiFlo™ FX and the AMX module 
  • Automated scratch assays in 24- and 96-well microplates using AutoScratch™ and Lionheart™ FX
Customers can continue this networking and collaboration through discussion groups on BioTek’s Customer Resource Center (CRC). View discussions and login to post or comment. If you’re not already a CRC user, register with a BioTek instrument serial number or customer number for immediate access.

Many thanks to our presenters and attendees for their participation in this event!
