Plate handling to and from stacks and incubator

To make research even more efficient and to keep your hands free, SYNENTEC has developed an automated plate handler that is fully integrated into the YT-software and compatible with the imaging systems CELLAVISTA and NYONE.


  • Reliable handling
  • Safe gripping
  • Remotely controlled by YT-Software
  • Automatic plate transfer
  • LIFO-stacks (Ambient)

Fully integrated SYBOT-1000 including Cellavista4 and Cytomat 2C-LiN incubator

Tailored to the requirements of customers, SYNENTEC have developed SYBOT-1000, a plate handler that is compatible and specially adapted with SYNENTEC’s imaging systems CELLAVISTA and NYONE, and can include the Cytomat 2C-LiN incubator, all integrated into YT-software.

Due to the increasing throughput requirements in research, SYBOT-1000 has a short handling time of 30 seconds per plate movement into or out of our imaging systems. All applications from our portfolio can be automated with SYBOT-1000.


SYNENTEC provide the most versatile cell imagers on the market. The instruments all have the option of full fluorescence capability. This means that the applications range from single cell cloning, apoptosis studies, through to transfection efficiency, toxicity studies and ultra-high throughput cell counting with viability. The instruments are compatible with a wide range of SBS format plate types and have a built in automation interface enabling integration into CLD platforms.

SYNENTEC’s team of engineers, software developers and biologists have developed automated, high throughput cell culture microscopes and fast, easy to use image analysis software.

The Cellavista, a high throughput fully automated cell imager, was launched in June 2007 and has been continuously developed ever since and was joined by the NyONE range of instruments in 2014. The instruments are used throughout the industry for applications varying from single cell cloning through to apoptosis studies.

Ellen’s take on this product

Ellen Harrington
Technical Sales Specialist

Versatile: Time saved by automation combined with precision optics and a wide range of applications make these imagers an integral part of any CLD workflow. Both extremely robust, the Cellavista offers higher throughput and is perfect for automated environments, while the smaller NyONE is ideal for medium-throughput laboratories with limited bench space. An extensive range of applications within Cell Line Development, Vaccine Research, Drug Discovery, Cancer Research, Stem Cell Studies and others makes these imagers the ultimate cell culture instrument.

Innovative: SYNENTEC are constantly developing new applications to meet the needs of customers. Technical assistance provided by the SYNENTEC team as well as local applications training means the user is supported from day 1.
