Automated Monitoring of Metabolic Activity and Differentiation of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells
23 February 2017

This application note describes a method for studying the phenotypic changes that occur during mesenchymal stem cell differentiation. Tecan’s Spark multimode microplate reader platform is used for automated, real-time analysis and several well-established and reliable cell-based assays for the assessment and quantification of cell viability, cytotoxicity and apoptosis developed by PromoCell. In this study, the Spark multimode reader is shown to be convenient, reliable and to provide a good basis for the automated multiparameter measurement of cell characteristics.
