Application Note: Analysis of Cells Dispensed by Dragonfly Discovery
31 August 2018

The dragonfly® discovery is a novel positive displacement dispensing instrument for assay optimisation. A common problem for automated dispensers is the risk of compromising the viability and long-term health of cells mainly due to shearing and stress effects. This study investigates the compatibility of the dragonfly® discovery for cell-based assays by directly comparing cell viability, proliferation and apoptotic responses with those obtained from hand dispensing.
