ALS’ business model is focusing on 4 different business units:
Their mission is to be a valuable partner for scientists, researchers and laboratory equipment manufacturers around the globe helping them through their products and services shaping a better future.
The main product of ALS, the ALS CellCelector is a multi-functional, extremely flexible system for automated screening of cell culture plates, dishes and slides. Target objects found during screening can then be picked out of those plates fully automatically. The system can isolate and pick individual single cells, adherent cell colonies and cell clusters as well as colonies from semi-solid media like methylcellulose. The complete scan and picking process is fully documented hence allowing highest standardization and reproducibility of all screening and picking processes.
Through using a full inverted fluorescence microscope screening can be done utilizing bright field, phase contrast and fluorescence illumination with up to 7 different fluorescence channels in microscopic precision and resolution.
Main applications of the system are:
With this feature range the ALS CellCelector is a perfect addition to flow cytometers or laser micro-dissection systems.
