Optimal selection and use of liquid handling equipment is essential to preventing challenges with sterility, reproducibility, efficiency, and scalability that can arise when working with cell culture.

Many cell types with different structural and functional characteristics exist and the most appropriate cell type to use depends on the specific research area and application. Cell culture systems are indispensable tools for investigating biological research questions with applications including the study of diseases and the production of biologics such as vaccines. Cell culture also plays a vital role in tissue engineering, where cells can be grown on a scaffold to create functional tissues and organs. To get the most out of your cell culture workflow it is vital to understand the characteristics of your cell lines. As well as considering the origin of your cells, there are many culture types available that can impact your work, these include adherent cells, suspension cells, and 3D cell cultures. 

Liquid handling equipment used in cell culture workflows can include single channel, multichannel, repeater pipettes, and semi-automated pipetting systems. Many of the challenges that arise when working with cell cultures are rooted in poor, sub-optimal, or inappropriate liquid handling tools and techniques. Processes can be improved by optimal selection and use of liquid handling equipment.  In this infographic, learn more about the different types of cells used in biological research and discover how to overcome four common cell culture challenges with optimized liquid handling.
