Tutorial: Understanding The Dynamics Of Cell-Based Assays – From Designing The Assay To Finding Out What Went Wrong.

This tutorial will investigate the different steps involved in designing and troubleshooting cell-based assays. We start with understanding the importance of cell-based assay dynamics as well as discuss the various components of the cellular microenvironment. A discussion about design errors and various issues which could arise will also be included.
