Automation of Cell Staining Using the Biomek 4000 Laboratory Automation Workstation
10 April 2013
This application note demonstrates how the Biomek 4000 Laboratory Automation Workstation can be used to automate cell staining sample preparation workflows using standard components. Automation can achieve preparation time savings with large numbers of samples while maintaining equivalent results and precision compared with manual processing. The staining of mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs) to detect the expression of developmental antigens in fixed cells following differentiation to cardiomyocytes is given as an example.
