Automated Cell Culture: Improving the Consistency of Cell Maintenance
31 Oct 2014
Cell culture has long been an essential aspect of both basic biological research and drug discovery. As the complexity and throughput of both of these tracks have increased, the need for automated solutions has increased correspondingly. In this application note, we illustrate the capabilities for automating a standard workflow for cell line maintenance and demonstrate this process using mouse embryonic stem cells. By automating the feeding and passaging of cells, the active time required for these daily tasks can be significantly reduced and variations in how different users handle cells is eliminated.
